Map of Prague
Prague is a pretty, old city, and you should take a long weekend to
see it. It is worth a trip all year round. But after 3 or 4 days one has
seen everything (main tourist sites), even if you take your time.

How to get there (from Germany):
A flight from Cologne/Bonn is available with German-Wings from 39,-
Euros, if you are lucky, and takes about one hour. The train costs much
more and takes 11 hours! Taking the car is at today petrol prices not
cheaper and takes longer too. The bus from the airport to the city
center takes about 1˝ hours. The damages of the flood of August 2002
are already repaired in the center, but one can still see them a little
off the beaten track.
Like at every tourist site you have to be aware of pick pockets, but
otherwise Prague is at least as safe as Hamburg, Berlin or Munich.
Prague is very focused on tourists and therefore nearly everyone
speaks English. So, you shouldn't have big language problems there.
