I am working on my itinerary for my honeymoon and the last place we will be visiting in Italy before we go elsewhere is Venice. Our plans are to go to Salzburg, Austria after we leave Venice and schedule wise, we were thinking we would be leave Venice on a Saturday morning and take a train to Salzburg. My question is, do they have morning trains that go from Venice to Salzburg on Saturdays? This would be at the beginning of May this next year.

Hello all,I am from Stockholm, Sweden. Currently, I am in Milan and planning to go Stockholm from Milan but I am confused somehow which route should I use and how should I plan. I will have monthly global pass with 4 days travel in a month, so, through this pass I just want to reach Stockholm by exploring some other countries as well. It is my first time to travel through interrail so that is why I do not have much idea about routes and train timings. I need to get idea specially about night trains because I was searching the night trains but there are very rare that after mid night train works from Milan (Italy). Could you please suggest me some best routes and some guidance as well regarding train timings, stops, reservation cost, bookings and etc. Thanks
Hi all,Since I'm new here, let me first say that I'm so excited that I booked my first interrail pass. I also want to share with you my passion for traveling and especially train traveling. My question is what city you would suggest to visit for a short stopover in Switzerland (Christmas period) and what's the best itinerary to choose to benefit the most? A friend suggested taking a Swiss train from cologne which has a glass roof and goes along the Rhine???Any ideas , suggestions are welcomed. My interrail pass is just for 4 days and I will start from Brussels. Thanks in advance See you in the train!Spyros
I just need some general advise. I haven’t done Interrail for some 40 years and time has passed, I’m very rusty and much older getting my head around Interrail now is proving difficult, can anyone help? I am planning a trip to Italy starting next Monday and I have not booked anything yet. I am flying to Milan and taking a train to Lake Como for the first few days, I probably can do that on a normal ticket rather than using one of my travel days (I was thinking of buying a 6 day travel pass one country). I want to travel from Milan to the following places, Cinque Terra, Pisa, Florence, Siena, Rome, Naples (Pompeii and Sorrento) - then the final leg Naples to Syracuse in Sicily. I really don’t know how to start to book, all my trains / reservations or even if this is the best way to do it. I really need any help that anyone can offer me please to point me in the right direction, I am just finding it all a bit overwhelming. Please can someone advise me? Thank you 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?

Hallo,Alld nodige treinreserveringen heb ik gemaakt van onze interrailreis naar Milaan en vervolgens door Italie. Overmorgen gaat de eerste dag in. Hoe zet ik de reisgegevens op de pas? De app vindt niet alle verbindingen. Moeten alle reisgrgevens kloppen per dag met de tijden erbij?Tussen Basel bbf en Milaan weten we namelijk nog niet welke verbinding we nemen. Volgens de community hoefde je dir verbinding niet te borken. We weten ook niet hoe laat we de trein vanuit Lugano nemfn. Moet ik dat toch noteren in de reisgrgevens op de digitake pas? Wordt dat gecontroleerd of geactiveerd ofzo?Alvast bedankt voor het antwoord.Vriendelijke gtoeten van Tineke
Hello,I would like to travel from Kosice (Slowakia) to Brasov (Romania) and there is an option to travel via Chop. This city is in Ukraine (close to the border). Is it possible to travel that route with a Global Pass or do I have to pay extra, and how about covid-regulations in Ukraine for travellers who only visit the railway station?
Hi. I’m deciding my route, where to visit, stay, everything. I’m planing to buy “10 days within 2 months” interrail and I want to stay approximately 5 days in every location. I hope that 60€ for a day will be enough for everything(accommodation, museums, renting a bike, food, go to bars, etc). I hope that if I make reservations 2 days before i go (accommodation and for train), it will be fine. That’s what I want to know. I’m reading your comments but also there’s a lot of information. I guess I need to do early reservation for Barcelona to Paris. And I changed Poznan with Prague . Feel free to share your thoughts, thanks a lot.
Hello. We will be travelling in October. Wondering if 4 min is enough transfer time in STEINACH (B ROTHENBURG OB DER TAUBER), 5 min in ANSBACH and 7 min at STUTTGART HBF station. Ive never been on the train, so Im not sure what it means to transfer from train to train, for example is it another station or across the platform? Or different depending on what city? Thanks for any information!
Hi!I'm trying to plan my trip. Here's what I've come up with so far. But this route leaves out Sofia, Bucharest,Thessaloniki, Skopje and Krakow. But i think this is some of the best i can do in 30-40 days. This routes includes some planetickets near the end due to not so good railways. I have never travelled alone before and I really wanna experience travelling abit before i start on my 3 year bachelor lol. Do I need to search for visum? I am a EU resident so I dont think it’s mandatory? Are there many places to wash clothes? I'm gonna stay at hotels, I guess I can pay the cleaners to help me wash my clothes? I hope to get all my stuff inside a small carryon bag.I'm thinking to adjust the days when I go, as long as I am at Split at xx. date to catch the airplane to Belgrade, and then to Athens, so the only fixed number of nights will be at Belgrade and at Athens. So I'll have xx amount of days to distribute on the places inbetween Gdansk and Split.Any feedback or tips?Places to sleep:G
Hi,I'm trying to plan a trip through scandinavia by train. Now I see on the rail map that (with interrail?) I can't travel to a place like Narvik. When I enter this place in the travel planner I can travel to this station. Does anyone know how this works?Is the rail map not correct? Or does this destination perhaps not fall under interrail travel?
Did you know that you get 50% discount on almost all lake constance public boat lines with your interrail/eurail pass?Many people don’t know, since it is published nowhere, except in the tariff:https://www.schiffe-am-bodensee.ch/images/befoerderungsbedingungen/Bodensee_Personentarif_2021_website.pdfIt can also be helpful to carry this pdf with you, in case the ticket seller don’t knows interrail/eurail!
Hello, When I want to consult the train timetables to go from a country to Serbia (no matter the city), the site tells me that no train corresponds to my search.However, a search without any particular filter. Is this a problem with the site or is Serbia not included in the Interrail passes? Thank you for your help. I was in the process of planning my journeys but this is blocking me and I cannot continue my search.
Leuke interrailers!Dit bericht is in het Nederlands, maar reageer gerust in het Engels.Mijn vriend en ik zijn bezig met het plannen van onze interrailreis en zouden graag het Tatra-gebergte in Slowakije willen bezoeken vanuit het plaatsje Starý Smokovec. Nu zijn we daarvoor in Krakau. Het probleem is dat de treinplanners ons via een grote omweg sturen (Via Katowice naar Tsjechië) om vervolgens Slowakije in te komen. Ik denk dat de grens tussen Polen en Slowakije dicht is? Weet iemand of deze grenzen binnenkort weer opengaan en/of er weer treinen gaan rijden tussen Polen en Slowakije. Eigenlijk tussen Krakau en Poprad/Starý Smokovec?Groetjes!
Hello everyone,I’m planning my first Interrail trip next summer. I’m going to travel alone. It’s my first real trip abroad.I’m not sure which of my two planned tours is better for me.Trip 1:Copenhagen – Gothenburg – Oslo – Stockholm – HelsinkiTrip 2:Vienna – Ljubljana – Budapest – (Bratislava -) Prague – Warsaw – Krakow (Start ist in Germany)A trip to Scandinavia has been a dream of mine for a long time. But it is much more expensive than Eastern Europe. And I also want to see the Northern Lights once in my life, so maybe I should do this trip in another winter.Eastern Europe is much cheaper. Is it advisable to choose Eastern Europe as your first trip? Are there better alternatives for beginners?And another question: Would it be better to book the hostels in advance or is a spontaneous booking possible? I’m afraid the best hostels fully booked.
