WITH MY TWO BROTHERS I AM VISITING STALAG LUFT 3 IN ZAGAN IN MAY WHERE OUR FATHER WAS A POW. IS IT BETTER TO FLY INTO BERLIN AND DRIVE, OR FLY TO SOMEWHERE IN POLAND? WE ALSO PLAN TO VISIT KRAKOW. S. SHEPPARD, MITTAGONG
According to Rome2rio [rome2rio.com], the train takes just over four hours to travel from Berlin to Zagan. You could drive it in a little over two hours and this is a better option if you plan to include Krakow, since Zagan to Krakow by road is much quicker than taking the train. You might also drive south from Krakow to Zakopane, a really lovely town at the foot of the Tatras Mountains with a distinct architecture, very beautiful in spring.
