Can someone help me find out info of where i can find a bus from Berlin to Dresden in Germany?

The only bus line i can find is Berlin Lines and that is more intercountry than I want.

Oh and i need to leave on tuesday. And im looking at buses instead of trains as i need to save money.
Cheers
Z

Eurolines has a bus route in just about every western and some eastern European countires. Their site will eventually lead you to Deutsch Touring which is the German segment of Eurolines. Unfortunately, I couldn't find any information about inter country traveling in Germany. You can probably contact them either via email or telephone or just stop by their location while in Dresden.

Looking up point to point tickets online, via the rail, I see the online price 55 E. Online prices are only generalizations yet and I've found it to be significantly more expensive. I wouldn't be surprised if it was 30 or less to take the train. You can check the price at those awesome automatic ticket machines.

Good luck!

edited to add: seems a lot of times the price of the train, especially shorter routes, is only slightly more expensive than rail, or about the same. maybe it's just the routes we've taken.

after all the looking we have decided to stick with the trains, we got a Bahn 25 card, which means that the first person gets 25% off and the second gets 50% percent off.

The card costs 50, and its just about paid for itself with a short trip from Berlin to Dresden
