My mother always told me that a smile cost nothing :-)

There is a direct train. Check the BAHN.de website

Your choice is either flight or train.

You can do it more cheaply on a bus but only if you are prepared to take a 7-8 hour journey. - www.eurolines.com

The only direct flights are with KLM and Lufthansa and you would need to buy a return to get a "cheaper" flight so IMO the train is still the better option.

Thank you. I have been looking at the trains and you can't book for September yet. We find it very hard to understand the price structure and what sort of ticket/pass we should be buying. Bus travel.seems to be the cheapest, but longest option. Is there any need to book a train well in advance.
