Travellers can expect trains to Prague from Vienna to take between 3 hours 57 minutes and 4 hours 3 minutes, when no changes are required.  If a convenient direct departure is not available, even services with a single change can take as little as 4 hours, so relatively rapid journeys are easy to book.

How many trains are there from Vienna to Prague?
