Road Trip Berlin To Prague

Instead of flying or taking the train from Berlin to Prague why not take a road trip? There are numerous tour groups that offer one-way rides and they stop at multiple places of interest. It is a great day trip to see the German and Czech countryside and get more out of a trip!


Berlin and its World War II history is a stop for anyone doing a tour of Central Europe. After learning about the city's history by seeing the Brandenburg Gate, Museum Island, and Checkpoint Charlie it is time to start another adventure and head to Prague. Luckily, there are many places to see along the way.

Stops along a Berlin Prague road trip


The Baroque Moritzburg Palace aka the Moritzburg Castle is a quick stop along the way. It was originally a hunting lodge but now it is open to the public with guided tours and special events. It was one of the locations for the movie Three Nuts for Cinderella which is popular in Central Europe. The interiors of the castle are quite opulent, make sure to go to the dining room which has a collection of 71 deer antlers that are over 200 years old.


Dresden is a beautiful city on the Elbe River full of Baroque and classical architecture. Its Old Town allows visitors to see the opulent past of the city through its palaces, cathedrals, and cultural institutions. Plan to make a stop in Dresden Old Town for lunch and enjoy a Thuringer sausage sandwich with a cold beer.

Saxon Switzerland National Park

From there move on into Saxon Switzerland and visit the Saxon Switzerland National Park area to see the wonderful limestone formations and the Bastei Bridge.

The trails are well laid out and easy for anyone to follow. Plus there are multiple points to take amazing photos of the limestone mountains and the valley around them.


Once on the Czech side, stop for a coffee at Litomerice. The sleepy town has an old town square lined with Gothic, Renaissance, and Baroque architecture. It is a delightful introduction to the Czech Republic.


After a day in the car, the last destination is Prague. The historic center of Prague is a Unesco World Heritage Site and there lies Wenceslas Square and the astronomical clock waiting to welcome visitors.
