WestBahn+Westbus: Salzburg to Prague

Hi there folks.

I'm a bit confused. From the website https:/…salzburg-prague-ticket , the offer is from Salzburg to Prague, and the offer price is €29, am i right?

So my questions are,

1. The price offered €29 is the price ONLY for the bus from Linz to Prague, or does it also include the train from Salzburg to Linz?

2. Do i need to buy separate ticket for the train from Salzburg to Linz at https://westbahn.at ?

3. Where can i take the train or where is the place/location name in Salzburg do i need to take the train for Westbahn?

4. Is this the best way to get to Prague from Salzburg? or is there any other way?

Thanks for the advises in advanced. I'm one of the Youth of The World who wants/love to see the beauty of Europe. Your advises are much appreciated :)

1. Re: WestBahn+Westbus: Salzburg to Prague

From their website

"This includes the train ride from Salzburg to Linz and the onward journey by bus from Linz to Prague on the same day – the same is valid for the opposite direction"

So, it is a combi ticket for € 29 one way

2. NO

3. Vienna Westbahnhof

4. Another way, using OEBB (Austrian federal railways) train, tickets start at € 39 if booking early

The answer to 3 should be Salzburg Hauptbahnhof!

The answer to 4. is that it is certainly the cheapest. 'Best' is subjective - some people won't touch buses with a bargepole for some reason, which is a pity, because these aren't ordinary buses and can be more comfortable then the train, and can go through nicer scenery. Others won't touch trains or buses and choose to drive everywhere, which is not the best solution in this situation, whichever way you look at it.

It is the cheapest and fastest way to get to Prague by public transport. The bus between Linz and Prague is an express one with only one intermediate stop in Ceske Budejovice, whereas the train has many intermediate stops. The bus mentioned goes, on the Austrian side, through the beautiful Mühlviertel District.

Florenc - main bus station. It is right by the metro, and plenty of trams go there, too.

Where are you aiming for in Prague?
