About traveling from Munich to Prague

Through Munich and Prague, you will see both sides of post-war Europe: the flattened and restored, and the carefully protected and preserved. Each city will let you experience the rich culture and architecture of Central Europe.

Between Munich and Prague are some exceptional sights, including the grand Kuchlbauer Tower, lovely Regensburg and Pilsen, beautiful Zbiroh Chateau, labyrinthine Koneprusy Cave, and majestic Karlstejn Castle. However, the only way to experience these is to book a private car transfer with Daytrip.
