Hey there, I really want to go interrailing solo this winter, but I'm pretty worried that not many people will go interrailing during this time. My plan is to start from Helsinki the first of December and travel from there back to Germany. Does someone of you have experience of interrailing in winter in Scandinavia, are there people to met in hostels? I'm really looking forward for your answers :)
Hello! Me and my boyfriend were thinking about interrailing into north of europe in the winter. I live in the north of France, so I was thinking about doing Lille-Hamburg; Hamburg-Copenhagen; Copenhagen-Oslo; Oslo- Stockholm; Stockholm- Kiruna. Kiruna-Rovaniemi ( I know I would have to take some buses but I’m not sure on which one). Rovaniemi- Helsinki; Helsinki-Tallin (with the ferry); Tallin- Riga (taking some buses); Riga- Vilnius (buses); Vilnius- Warsaw (I’m not sure how); Warsaw- Berlin and then going home. Is that okay to do in the winter? Like december-january. Is it a trip that we can do? Thank you.
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

I am travelling summer 2023 with my husband and 2 children, for 2 weeks around europe. We arrive in Paris from London on the eurostar, plan to stay for 2 nights and then head to the Black Forest. Can anyone recommend a hotel that is fair budget (but nice) that is easy to get to from the eurostar gare nord. Thanks
We are planning on travelling from Pairs to Munich, with a 2 night stop in the Black Forest on the way. I know we can change at Strasbourg and then can get to Offenburg or Karlsruhe but I cant decide where is the best place to go. We would rather be in a smaller, more rural village/town where we can easily access some walks or something else go to see as will only have one full day there. we have a 5yr old and 10yr with us. any recomendations much appreciated
Hi Friends! So… I just discovered Lapland :O Has anyone traveled up to Finnish Lapland for the Northern Lights before? I was in Copenhagen (thanks to the amazing humans on this forum… i made all 17 hours of my connections from Titisee last week!) I’m currently traveling from Hamburg to Prague right now after deciding I didn’t have the appropriate clothing for Lapland (and not enough luggage to store a new winter outfit)… but I can’t get Lapland out of my mind! I keep telling myself it’s October and I don’t need full-on snow coat and boots… am I being delusional? :P Putting feelers out there to see if anyone has done this… or can recommend it. I fly back home to Seattle on October 24 and considering overhauling my entire rest of my itinerary if I can make Lapland happen…. I know there’s a Santa Clause Night Express but I’m hoping to get a little further up North than that. It looks like Lapland is rainy but I’ve been seeing posts about the auroras showing up anyway! Would love any word
Does anyone know if this service will operate please?Nightjet Berlin to Budapest 12/123/22 - services stop on 10 December and cannot buy tickets online after this date. Is anyone aware of any updates about this service and the 2023 timetable of obb/mag?Thank you.
Interrailing from the North of England or coming to the UK for an Interrail holiday?To get to or from the North of England to the continent by train means we have to travel to London and then Eurostar, which means an early start and significant reservation fees just to get across the channel, not to mention getting E* availability.From our local airport (Leeds/Bradford) we have now flown out a couple of times for IR trips, but only 2 low cost airlines ,have been operating (Ryanair and Jet2). Recent announcements have meant that Tui and Wizzair are coming soon, increasing our options. Wizz air in particular will be covering airports in Gdansk, Katowice, Krakow, Warsaw, Wroclaw, Bucharest, and Cluj-Napoca.
My understanding is that the global pass is good for Turkey. However, I don’t see man cities in Turkey appear in the real planner app at all. For example, Cappadocia (Turkey) in the planner at all, nor Kayseri which seems to be relatively close. Similarly, Izmir does not appear nor the rail station at Turan. When I put Istanbul in the station section, it does not show any destinations at all. Can someone please explain how to do this or how this works? Thanks in advance.
Travelling in Romania with a mobile pass seems extemely challenging. Is this known by Interrail? Did I miss any warnings by Interrail?Is it even possible?We are travelling with 3 kids, and tomorrow we want to use a day. 3 trains that do not need reservation according to interrail. Fingers crossed...
Hi my daughter is in Rome currently and needs to get to Amsterdam to catch a flight at 5pm on Monday 1/8.Her planned route was 31/7 Rome-Milan Milan-Zurich Zurich-Amsterdam the latter dep 20.59 arr 09.14 for a day in Amsterdam before heading to the airport.There appears to be not a single ticket on any train from Milan to Zurich - can this be right?Please can anyone suggest an alternative or have any ideas - even changing in Lugano we cannot find a train from Milan to Lugano?? Is there an alternative route that would work. Any help appreciated - novice interrailer and learning as she goes 😳. Thank you
We have just returned from a long weekend in Monte Carlo, but couldn’t find any E* from Paris. We could though find a couple of options from Lille.A local train from Monte Carlo to Nice Ville in good time for the morning TGV to Paris Gare de Lyon.Then a RER transfer to Gare de Nord took about 30 mins for late afternoon TGV train to Lille (Connection time was 1 hr) Only stressful time was getting a ticket for the RER - easy once I got to the front of the queue for the machine.A mid centre 4* hotel and an excellent evening meal at on of the many Brasseries within 10 minutes walk ( a little expensive I admit).Then we had the morning in Lille centre, including an excellent Breakfast in another of the great Brasseries at half the price of the hotel.We then walked up to Lille Europe (via EuraLille shopping centre) - about 15 mins walking plus time in EuraLille for a coffee and a dash around Carrefour. Check in for 1335 E* started at 1230 and was a bit slow for passport checks but otherwise e
Hi!I am looking to travel to Bar in Montenegro in May from the UK. We then plan to travel back via train too. My husband has a fear of flying so thought this would be a great way to get to Europe with him having a meltdown!On the way there we need to travel as quickly as possible as we are going to a yoga retreat that starts on 18th May. However, on the return journey (25th) we have a bit more time. Is it possible to get some help and advice on planning this journey. I’ve never done anything like this before as I normally fly so I would really appreciate a bit of help! Thanks in advance 🙏🏼Corfe
Manually added journeys are sometimes not shown on the rail planner app, Google maps or ViaMichelin doesn't draw rail itineraries: Does anybody know about an app where I can draw my finished journey in order to screen-copy it e.g. in foto book? I couldn't find unfortunately.
Hi guys,I will arrive in Istanbul tomorrow morning and spend there two or three days. I am currently in Bucharest so I would like to go to the other direction ( Sofia, Croatia etc.)Do you have any suggestions on how to leave Istanbul and where to head next?It seems quite complicated to get to the direction of Montenegro / Croatia. If there’s no good train connection I would just go by bus.Just leave any recommendations or inspiration :)Thanks a lot in advance
