I splurged (just a little) and booked a first class ticket on the train to Prague (allowing me lounge privileges), coffee and a variety of beverages and sakes are free, but Wifi is not. The lounge at the Hauptbahnhof in Berlin is nice then the one at the airport!
It’s an amazing station. Great architecture.
This was very interesting to me – the only washroom for this entire station was a pay as you go situation. 1 Euro to use the toilet and 7 if youw anted to take a shower.
And then there was the food. A vast array of selection, a lot of it looked great, this seafood place was fairly fancy.
Herring and raw onion on a hero anyone?
While watching the scenery go by I decided to have lunch in the dining car.
Love this! The dinning car had a very dry and efficient waiter, and most of the food was cooked on a stove or prepared (assembled a la minute).
Of course no trip to Prague is complete without a Pilsner Urquell!
