I am commencing my Eurail trip from Athens around 5th August. I cannot seem to find concrete information on how to get from Athens to Sofia (Bulgaria). Some places say there’s trains. Others say I train to Thessaloniki then bus to Sofia. Others say I train to Thessaloniki, bus to the border, taxi over the border, then bus to Sofia. But when I drill down into these ‘trips’ they can’t provide any concrete information past Thessaloniki.If I have to split with train then bus, will the bus be covered on Eurail? I don't want to resort to flying!Please help!
Hi there, first time traveller here.Travelling around Europe with me two young children in Summer 2023.Just trying to get my head around how it all works!We arrive in Cherbourg Port in June and would like to spend a few days with easy access to Mont St Michel. I went to the SNCF website and typed Cherbourg to Mont St Michel, thinking it would give me routes and options to get there.I quickly worked out it's not that easy lol!I think input the next nearest biggest station Caen, and found a train that actually stops in Lison , which according to the rail map would be the place to change.Hiwever I can’t find any trains going out of LisonI tried Lison to St Malo, nothing's there an easier way to work out my routes?Many Thanks :-) Sinead
Bonjour from Evian! Could I please get some help? I want to go to Hotel Radiana today in in La Léchère and having a hard time finding the proper itinerary. I know Eurail planner app isn’t ideal for planning but it has MUCH better itineraries (bringing me to petit. Coeur La Lechere L Bains… which might be a bus stop) than I’m finding on Google Maps, SNCF or Rome2rio directly. Unfortunately, Omio isn’t giving me any options either. I wanted to check in because this area is more rural and I’m afraid to get stranded so that’s why i’m here! I’m okay getting a mix of buses as well but still can’t find the proper bus site… I tried SNCF Bus but couldn’t find the itinerary for today. Please help! Thank you in advance! EDITED TO ADD:Oh! I should add that the Hotel recommended I get to these two stations But said I mauy hve to take a cab from Moutiers. moutiersnotre dame de BriancoenBut none of these are in ANY of the itineraries i’m pulling up so i’m not sure what route to go with. The front des
Hi there, I’m planning ahead for a trip from London to Hamburg next summer and would like to travel Brussels-Cologne-Hamburg. When looking at potential routes (via the Interrail seat reservation tool), it only shows the route Brussels-Amsterdam-Duisberg-Hamburg, even for trips this month. That seems like a long way around with some very tight connections. Anyone know why that is? How will I be able to reserve seats on the route I want to use?Thank you very much. A
Hello Eurorail community!I’m planning a 2 week impromptu trip starting Christmas through Jan 7, flying in/out of London from the US. Hoping to visit several countries by train as this will be first time in this part of world and I feel that would give me a great opportunity to see the beautiful countryside and meet people along the way . Thinking something like: London>France>Switzerland>Austria or Germany>Belgium>Amsterdam>London>HomeI know its ambitious but feel it's doable. I’m traveling solo, will stay at AirBnBs along the way, and mainly looking to experience the local culture, meet great people and have fun. I’m going through the most challenging time of my life but very optimistic about future and a big fan of staying present and following dreams and goals, Life is shortHoping to get any/all advice, recommendations from this experienced community, such as:-Do I need to make advanced train reservations for each stop? I hoped to keep my options open but unders
Hi,I’m travelling from Prague to Geneva.I’m taking the sleeper train Prague (18:21) to Zurich (08:20) overnight then Zurich to Geneva on that same day.I know the first part of the journey counts as 1 travel day because it’s overnight. What about the 2nd part of the trip? Is this considered as a 2nd travel day or is this still part of the first travel day? They need to be booked/reserved separately.Thanks.
Hello,we’re actually in France but because of the extremely hot weather we‘re thinking about visiting Norway instead of Spain. The question is, are we allowed to travel trough Germany (we live in Germany) or would this end our trip because it’s our inbound ticket back to Germany?
Mobile Pass: Does Corridor trains like Salzburg - Kufstein counts as inbound-outbound for German residents?
Hi fellow interrailers,I’ve bought a 1 month continuous mobile pass and planning to take the trip from Vienna - Innsbruck. The trains goes through Germany without stopping for a small patch of the journey (Salzburg - Kufstein).I’ve seen some threads here mentioning this as just a corridor which won’t be counted as inbound/outbound journey in the home country. But, as I have a mobile pass, will it also consider this corridor exception? If not, what are the other option?I know I can take a different train to travel through Salzburg - Kufstein. Or even buy a ticket for this part of the journey to remain in the same train. But, other ideas would be appreciated.Thanks :)
Hi we are looking to travel from Venice to Milan in June 12 2023, and Milan to Nice in June 15 2023.But looking at the timetables there’s no train that is less than 13/14 hours, im looking for trains that take less than 5 hours.Has the timetable been update for summer yet??Many thanks in advance.
According to the page for Italy on this website passes aren’t valid on Lecco to Piona trains, part of the Tirano - Milan line and are shown as such on the App. According to reports from travellers using these trains, they have been told by an on-train Trenord employee that passes are valid and on other occasions presenting a pass hasn’t been challenged by the ticket inspector. Any info, other travellers experiences out there?

HI allAfter two weeks round Italy by rail in Easter, we’re now heading to the continent again during summer holidays for three weeks. Just hoping there may be some good suggestions for routing, as I’m also hoping to fit in a sleeper.We’re leaving from London and would like to cover the following for definite:Belgium - Bruges/Ghent/BrusselsCzechia - PragueGermany - Berlin (maybe somewhere else)Netherlands - AmsterdamOpen to other suggestions if it makes routing easier, but we would quite like to get a sleeper or two in. We are two adults and two kids (11 and 14), and would need either two 2-berths or a 4-berth couchette. I know some routes don’t have 4-berths. Have looked at the new Brussels to Berlin, and there are still seats - appreciate it’s not part of interail at the moment. Any other sleeper suggestions?I’ve also been considering Stockholm - I know there’s a sleeper from Hamburg. But my concern is that I’d be going in and coming back out the same way (maybe not by sleeper), which

Hi All! I want to take night trains throughout my entire trip to maximize my time in Europe. Is this possible? Looking to land and depart from Brussels, to Dusseldorf, to Berlin, to Leipzig, to Prague, to Vienna, to Salzburg, to Munich, to Zurich, ending in Frankfurt. Is this even possible? I think some of these places are only a few hours way from each other.
Hello,I’ll be traveling with interrail this summer with my friends, and our last journey will be taking the Snälltåget night train home to Sweden from Berlin or Hamburg. Since we aren’t planning to spend our last days in these cities, my question is: what are your recommendations for places where Berlin or Hamburg is reachable by day trains?Some background: we will be coming from northern Italy or Austria. We will have seen Berlin and Prague already. We are open to big cities as well as natural wonders. This will all be in July. The night train leaves Berlin at 20:58 and Hamburg at 23:59 (which should still be part of the travel day even if it’s delayed... right?). We’ll of course want a few hours between arriving in northern Germany and departing with the night train. Some of our ideas right now are Munich, Salzburg, Strasbourg. Maybe someone has experience with these cities and can recommend one, or some hidden gem nearby? Or are these dangerously far away?All input is greatly apprec

Hallo zusammen, ich würde gerne eine Reise über circa 24 Tage machen, meine Route wäre von Frankfurt (ich wohne in Karlsruhe) über das Mittelmeer bis nach Lissabon. Jetzt meine Frage, wie würdet ihr mir das empfehlen? Ich würde das ganze gerne im März machen, wäre es sinnvoll von Lissabon zurück zu fliegen? Weil ich finde keine Route von Lissabon nach Frankfurt, auch nicht mit Stop in Bordeaux.Und wie und wann würdet ihr mir empfehlen, die Reservierungen zu umgehen oder zu tätigen? Vielen Dank vorab und liebe GrüßeManuel
Hey :) I am unsure how many days I have to buy. My plan is to go from Trelleborg to Stockholm (8:07-14:34/ 8am-2pm) and on the same day from Stockholm to Narvik (18:11-12:48/ 6pm-1pm) is it right that this journey only counts as one day? My other plans are: Fauske → Trondheim (22:02-7:14/ 10pm-7am) = second day & Trondheim → Oslo (23:17-6:50/ 11pm-7am) or (15:23-22:02 / 3pm-10pm) = third day & Oslo → Bergen (8:25-15:10 / 8am-3pm) = day 4 & Bergen → Oslo (8:15-15:15 / 8am-3pm) = day 5 & train back to Germany = day 6 and maybe 7 Am I right that I need a 7 day globalpass? And that I am going to have one day left for safety? Thank you in advance ! :)
