The obvious solution is a midway stop in Germany to break up that first train ride. But where to stop that we could enjoy for a couple of days (as we aren't retired we can't extend this too long, and I don't want to do a day here and a day there...too hectic). Hanover? I know next to nothing about most of the towns I'm seeing on the map that are roughly 1/2 way to Prague. Except Buchenwald. I know that one. I'd love to visit the camp there (if it's still there), but not sure if others in my party would be as interested. (1poorlady feels sick when she sees stuff like that.)

For a couple of days in a German city, I'd recommend Berlin or Munich.

Both have some fantastic museums and sites to see. They are easy to get around, public transportation wise, and offer so much to see.

You mentioned Buchenwald. Instead of Buchenwald, you can do a tour of Dachau from Munich.

I've visited Dachau and it's a very intense experience. It's hard to put into words my personal experience. I will say it was one of the most important travel experiences of my life.
