Hey all,I’m planning on doing a lot of train traveling in March 2023. I really don’t care if I’m on the Eurail for a long time, since I am just trying to be in these countries for a little bit and say that I’ve been to all of these countries. I have never been to Europe. It will be my first time next year, traveling solo!This is what I really want to do, but I realize that I may not be able to. I already have a permanent place near Wembley Stadium in the London, UK area. My yellow highlights are the places I really want to visit, take some cool pictures, walk around, get some food, soak up the scenery, and call it. I’ll be in Europe for 9ish days. Mostly exploring London. European Countries I want to go to for a 1-day trips (mostly being on the Eurail)London to Paris & Paris to London London to Madrid & Madrid to London London to Lisbon & Lisbon to London London to Dublin & Dublin to LondonDo any of you know where I can find info about how long these 1-day trips would
Hello Community,with the recent discount I spontaneously bought an Interrail Global Pass for 1 Month. I have never interrailed before. But since I bought this pass, I spend a lot of time researching.I will start my Journey from Aachen, close to the German Border with the Netherlands/Belgium.Since my only window for travelling is September/October Scandinavia is not really an option for me. I feel like the days are too short, especially close to the polar circle.The destination I would like to travel the most is Spain/Portugal since I have not been there before. (I have been plenty of times in Italy and also a few times in the balkan).With my research I already know, that these countries are not ideal for Interrail. I am not on a very tight budget and due to the discount I already saved some money. So the extra cost for seat reservations are definitely okay for me and I can plan with that.What really puts me off, though, is the fact that reservations can't be made online. Since I like t
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
Hi, I’m Guillermo, and I am planning a solo trip this August from Barcelona-Istanbu, passing thourgh the main capitals of Europe.I have some doubts about the end of the trip, more concretely, about the posible paths to go from Budapest to Istanbul. I’ve done some research and seems like:The Budapest-Belgrade-Sofia-Istanbul route is pretty fucked up with no transparent schedules, etc… in the Serbia part. The better option is to go to Budapest-Bucharest(or Craiova)-Sofia-Istanbul, which seems also pretty bad with lots of changes and no direct trains?Any one that knows how this part is really working now a days? Which is the best route in terms of less complications, and maybe less time? Thanks in advance!
Hello. I read an article somewhere that it was possible to do the Glacier Express route on regional trains, for free. But doing a route search on the Interrail App, between Zermatt and St. Moritz, I get different routes, that do through Zurich, Bern… Which is not the original Glacier route. Any advice?Thanks!
Can anybody suggest a logical route here, please? They are all so close l am not sure it makes too much difference but if l save an hour or two, l would be grateful Dusseldorf, Wuppertal, Essen, Bochum, Cologne, Gelsenkirchen, Dortmund, Leverkusen and Monchengladbach. I would be arriving into the area from Brussels and moving on to Hamburg. Thanks in advance
Hi,Our plan was to do a trip through the Balkans as part of our Eurotrip. So far we have planned: Amsterdam - Berlin - Prague - Vienna - Venice - Ljubljana - Split - Zagreb. From Zagreb we want to go to Belgrade, Bar, Mostar and then end up in Greece. The last potential leg of our trip can’t seem to be planned through the app. Does anyone have any idea of why that is or how we could best plan this part? We are open to adjusting the itinerary if there is a better route. I look forward to reading your replies!
Hey everyone :)I’m planning a trip in the scandinavic countries. I’ll start at Stockholm and want to go first over Oslo to Bergen. During this trip, there is the railway of the Flam train. Anyone has an advice for me to include it efficient to my trip. I saw that the train between Oslo and Bergen stops at Myrdal, which is one stop of the flam rail. Do I have then only the possibility to go a whole round with the flam train back to Myrdal?Thanks for your help.Alex

Hello, I’m looking to book a train from Paris to Zermatt. There are two short transfers -- one at Strasbourg station (10 mins) and another at Visp station (6 mins). Is it advisable to book this train ticket? Need some advice, thank you very much!
Hello allI have bought a 10 day global pass for me and my son. Now I want to plan a round trip from Czechia through German to Paris, then to Milano, continuing through Switzerland to Vienna and back to Czechia. My intention was to plan for every section a separate trip and make the relevant reservations, but I do not succeed to plan more than one trip. But in one trip, I cannot choose the single destinations I would like to have, including stop-overs.Can somebody help me?Other issues are not available reservations on some trains and the fact that FreccaRossa is not included in the Pass, despite the advertising of Interrail. And how do I see whether we have adjacent seats on the reservation before paying?Looking forward to your comments!Thanks in advance!Heinz
Hi,me and a friend are going on interrail in june / july for 6 weeks. We will visit the Netherlands, Belgium, Switzerland, Italy, Austria, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Slovenia, Hungary and Croatia. (more specifically; Amsterdam, Bruges, Bern, Como, Venice, Vienna, Prague, Bratislava, Budapest, Ljubljana and Split) Should we book trains / hotels in advance; if so how long before? We would prefer to be able to book during the trip but we are skeptical about whether trains and hostels will be sold out as it is high season.Does anyone have experience that trains have been sold out or will there always be available trains every day?
Hello Eurail CommunityCan somebody coach me in searching a journey from Koeln HBF Station to Bruhl Station (Bruhl, Germany). Bruhl Station is the nearest station to the Bruhl Castle. I seem to not finding in the Eurail Trip planner this Bruhl Station and I cannot find it using the DB Navigator App either.Thank you for any help and coaching.RegardsNathaniel
Hi there!I am new to the interrail community and I am not sure how to work with it, so maybe you can help? :)This summer I would love to explore Czech by bike. I am only able to go around 10 days. What is the most efficient way?The one country pass will be (I think) the best pass for my situation. That means that I can hop on the train in Keulen and go to Berlin, and from Berlin I can go to Prague (day 1). Then I can go back the same way (day 10). I saw that it’s only available to get a one country pass for 3 days, but I can't travel inside Prague since Prague is the only station in Czech. So one day will get lost? I don’t really know. Also, you can only use it for one month, but does that mean 4 weeks or for example only the month July. Because I can only go from the end of July - beginning of August.Besides that I would want to take my bike, but I cannot find any information about this.Does someone know how this works and how I can organize my trip?Thank you so much.Kind regards,Jess
I’m don’t quite understand the map shown in https://www.eurail.com/en/plan-your-trip/railway-map : It only shows the biggest European cities but it doesn’t show all the routes the Eurail covers, right?For example: in the link provided I don’t see the route between Paris and Zurich, but I know there is a way to do it as shown in the “Eurail-Map-2021.pdf”. Does the Eurail-Map-2021.pdf show the real and all possible routes that I will be able to make with the Eurail global pass? Or the PDF shows all routes possible, but not all of them are in the global pass?I’m trying to understand what the limitations of the global pass are when traveling western Europe.Thanks in advance.
I bought a Eurail Pass but the schedule for a few routes I need is. not open yet. It seems that since this is less than 2 months away, I would be able to reserve seats. I am needing Florence to Ravenna on June 18, 2022 and Ravenna to Rome on June 26, 2022. I am only seeing trains available through June 11 and there is only one per day? Does anyone know when I these needed trains will be available to reserve?
