Every day, travellers can expect an early morning departure, and a late evening service as well, allowing you to be flexible with your travel plans. The schedule for buses from Berlin to Krakow stays much the same throughout the week, however there are slightly fewer buses at weekends, when prices may also be a little higher.
Return buses from Krakow to Berlin are also available.
Deutsche Bahn buses from Berlin to Krakow depart from the Hauptbahnhof (the main rail station). Services operated Infobus all depart from Berlin ZOB- the city's international bus station. This can be found near Kaiserdamm U-Bahn station and Berlin Messe-Nord S-Bahn station in the west of the city. The U-Bahn runs daily between 4:00 a.m. and 1:00 a.m. the following day as well as taxis are easy to find and affordable, so you should be able to connect to any bus departures easily at any time of day.
Buses to Krakow arrive at the city's main bus station, which is located in the northern part of the city, a couple of miles from the centre. To reach the historic centre, head into the nearby station and follow signs for the trams and buses to "Stare Miasto". The journey will only take ten minutes, and will leave you in one of Europe's least spoilt historic districts. Krakow is famous for the way its architectural treasures have been preserved. You can wander the cobbled streets, see palaces, cathedrals and elegant market squares that seem to have been lifted from the seventeenth century. The stunning Tatra Mountains are not far away as well, offering superb skiing and hiking opportunities.
