Travel from Prague to other cities

We are planning a trip to Vienna, Prague, Berlin and Budapest (in that order) in early September. Can anyone recommend the best ways to get between these cities--plane, train, car?

Hey,

obviously it would be more convenient to do this trip Budapest - Vienna - Prague - Berlin or vice versa.

In the order you're doing it, the Vienna-Prague-Berlin bits would be best (more cheaply and quickly) done by bus or train than by flying. For trains, see europetrainsguide.com/Advice/How-to-Buy-Trai… for Vienna-Prague and https://www.cd.cz/eshop/default.aspx (switch to English in the top right corner) for Prague-Berlin. both fares are 29 euros. Buses from Vienna to Prague can be cheaper, such as http://westbus.at/de.

The Berlin-Budapest bit would be quickest by plane (try Easyjet: http://www.easyjet.com/en/). There's also a night train from Berlin to Budapest which would save you a night of accommodation, book that at http://www.bahn.de/p/view/index.shtml

I think hiring a car and driving would be very expensive and not worthwhile, especially if you plan to pick up and return the car in different countries.

On Czech railways site you can book from 60 days in advance, on German from 92 days...but check prices, CD sells special offer cheaper.(mostly)
