Disruptions of railway- Balkan routes not in service anymore
Has anyone travelled through the balkans while interrailing recently? We had planned to travel from Venice to sanatori, this seemed possible when I entered the destinations in on the interrail rout planner. However when I look at the rail disruptions on the interrail website many of these routs are not in service anymore. Can anyone clarify or advise?
Hello! I'm fairly new here, so looking for some advice on a potential travel plan. Now I'm from India, and I plan to travel to Turkey, go to Seville, then London, and then head back to India. I was wondering if there was a direct train of sorts possible for the Turkey - Seville connection, or is there a cheaper was than the Eurail, or what the best way of doing the Europe/UK part of the trip is, since if nothing works out, I think flying if the only thing I can think of.
Berlin/Rome airport to/from city centre
How would I get from Berlin Brandenburg Airport to Berlin city. Would this be something to book or is it easy to find transport from the airport. I’m a solo traveler so want it to be quite straightforward when I leave the airport. Also what’s the average/cheapest prices for the transport. This is also the same from Rome city to Rome Fiumicino. Thanks :)

Advice for routes around Croatia? Starting from the Netherlands.
Hi!This summer I will be traveling with my boyfriend through Europe with our Interrail passes. We would love to go to Croatia and are planning our trip around this destination. Could you guys give me some advise about routes that would be nice to look at. We will ben traveling from the Netherlands. We are particularly looking in to night trains (with beds if it’s possible) because that will spare us some days. I find it really difficult to find routes with the Rail Planner app because it doesn’t seem to show the fastest routes or night trains. I also could not succeed in a reservation.Hope to hear from you!love,Fé
Whole Germany for just 9€ (on regionaltrains) in June/July/August.
Germans goverment try to convince the Citizen of Germany to use more public transport. Because of that they started a quite unique offer. The “9€ Ticket” (per month) in the months June,July,August you can get for 9€ a ticket this is valid on all regionaltrains (no ICE,ECE,IC,EC,Flixtrain,Snälltoget), public bus services (no Flixbus,Pinkbus), trams, metro in 2nd class.You can use the 9€ticket for example for daytrips fromBerlin to Potsdam, explore Berlin with the touristic buslines 100,200,300 :) , have a nice ferry ride on the “Wansee” from Wansee to Kladow.Munich a daytrip to Dachau, Salzburg,Kufstein,Berchtesgarden,NeuSchwarnstein CastleAnd many many more destinations.For the Railfans here in this community just note that even some NarrowGauge Rails like the “Harzer Schmalspurbahnen” decided to accept the 9€ ticket.
3 month itinerary suggestions please
Hello everyone. I spontaneously bought a 3 month pass for me and my husband. We will be starting in Birmingham, then getting the Euro tunnel to Paris probably, at the beginning of September. The rough plan is France, Italy, Greece, Turkey, Spain and Portugal. We have 75 days remaining to be in the Schengen Area so Turkey seems a good place to be at some point after Greece. Or Croatia, Montenegro of Romania. I like a mixture of planning ahead with some spontaneity and like cities, food, sightseeing and some down time. I have a mobile pass (which after reading some of the comments on various community pages I am beginning to regret) but it is what it is. For those that are more familiar with rail travel in Europe, what would be a suggested 3 month trip? What would you not miss and what would you avoid?
Bohinji Railway Jesenice - Nova Gorica (Slovenia). Is the steam train worth it?
Is the steam train worth it, or is this very touristic with entertainment (that’s not really what I’m looking for ;)But if it also can be done without the entertainment, and worth it, how can I add it in my mobile pass, if I search the route (Jesenice - Nova Gorica) it seems like regular trains only.Is it good to make a return trip in 1 day?thank you,
From Biarritz to Spain seems impossible. Suggestions?

New to Eurail - Planning Trip Around Europe
Hi all! My partner and I are planning a trip to Europe for about a month and a half this summer. We’re trying to figure out ticketing and making sure we get to the location we need to. I think our main confusion comes when having to find or book tickets for lines not necessarily linked to Eurail. Basically our plan is:Madrid→Barcelona→Nice→Milan→Florence→Riomaggiore→Rome (flying to) Split→Ljubljana→Venice→Interlaken→Frankfurt→Amsterdam→Brussels→Paris→LondonMost of these don’t seem to be issues but with finding certain trains like Barcelona to Nice we seemed to have uncertainty around the specifics of it all. Neither of us have have done everything like this so we are just trying to iron this out with having as few hiccups as possible. Looking for any valuable information, tips or advice anyone has!
Hi, I’m thinking of travelling to Europe and just had a few questions: 1) If I buy a ticket from Paris to Zurich, would I be able to get off the train and explore on the stops along the way with the ticket I have, or would I have to get a separate ticket to get back on the route? 2) Would you recommend getting a travel pass or separate train tickets to travel from Paris, to Lucerne, to Montreux, to Milan, to Venice, to Florence to Rome. I am planning to stay in each city for 2-3 days. 3) Would you recommend taking a flight or the train for travelling between the destinations I mentioned Thank you in advance for your help!
Hola!! Queremos ir de viaje a la zona de los Balcanes, pero si estoy en lo cierto, la línea de tren Zagreb-Sarajevo está cerrada indefinidamente.¿Alguien sabe si el bus (que es la alternativa) se puede coger con el Eurail Pass o habría que pagarlo a parte? Dado que el tren está cerrado.Muchas gracias!! :)
