Hello Travellovers Due to restrictions I couldn’t do my Albania Trip in May, which caused me to explore my homecountry Switzerland instead. I thought I have seen almost all, but was nicely surpriced, that there are still many places left to discover. Join my journey to the Neuchatel Jura:We decided to make Le Locle our basis for daytrips.Canton of Neuchatel has a nice guest card which will use you for free public transport (busses and trains), and offer some coupons for a free shipride, free museum entries, free chairlift ride, etc.Lac des Brenets — the ship brings you from Les Brenets to Saut du Doubs where you can take a little walk to see a nice waterfall. Unfortunately, the good viewing place is on the french side which we couldn’t enter due to travel restrictions. The ship is included in the mentioned guest card, and Lac des Brenets is more like a beautiful gorge than a lake.Creaux du Van — one of the best known nature attractions in Romandy. Reachable by 2 hours hiking from Noira
Hello everybody A friend and I are leaving next week on our interrail trip in Europe. We would like to start with discovering the Greek islands, but when checking the timetables at the website of Interrail, there are no trains available to Athens. So we know the Hellas expres does not drive anymore so we are thinking to take a bus, but which bus connection do you recommend to get easy and on a budget to Athens? ThanksssKato
Hi everybody,I am currently staying in Zagreb and I am leaving in two days (17-1-2023). I need to get to Istanbul by the end of the month due to a flight I have the on the first of February from Istanbul airport. I was planning to travel there through either Belgrade or Sarajevo and then Sofia. But this morning I found out that it isn’t possible to go to Sofia through Belgrade or Sarajevo. I found an alternative route through Budapest, Bucharest, Sofia and then Istanbul (if it’s possible/practicable I could skip Sofia and go to Istanbul directly from Bucharest). But here some problems emerge:firstly I only have three traveling days left, and I don't think that is enough to cover the entire journey. secondly I know how to travel from Zagreb to Bucharest. But not the rail planner app doesn’t show any trains from Bucharest to Sofia (in fact Sofia train stations don’t appear at all) or Istanbul.I am planning to stay a few nights in Budapest. Hopefully I can figure a way out to get to Istan
Hi! I would like to buy the greek islands pass but I want to check first which greeks islands are connected and if it worths it (for example I would like to visit mykonos, santorini, milos and creta. Is it possible?! Or is it difficult?). I can't find the connections between islands in the interrail page (it seems as only a few of them are connected) and I would be very happy if someone could solve me this doubth! Thank you very much!! :)
HelloI can see two different Basel Badischer Bahnhof (one for Switzerland and one for Germany) in the Interrail-App. Why there are no trains driving from Basel Badischer Bahnhof (Switzerland) but trains drive form Basel Badischer Bahnhof (Germany)? Can I drive with One Country Ticket Switzerland from Basel Badischer Bahnhof (Germany) to Destination in Switzerland?
Hi all,I am going to Italy for the first time in my life and I want to take train from Rome to Milan on the morning of 8 Oct. I have checked on thetrainline.com and I saw from the government website (http://scioperi.mit.gov.it/mit2/public/scioperi)There is a locale strike on 7 Oct 21.01 to 8 Oct 21.00 but it seems that I can still make reservation under Eurail.Does anyone know how would it affect the train schedule from Rome to Milan? Or it is meaning that train will not arrive Milan on 8 Oct? Thanks so much in advance as I really have not much idea about Italy’s transport system.
Hi guys my friend and I are currently in Croatia and are planing on travelling to Thessaloniki. We found out that many trains in the Balkan are not going right now, so we were wondering if there were any possibilities on going for Zagreb to Thessaloniki by train because we do not really want to go by bus. Any help is very much appreciated! Emilie and Charlotte
I would like to visit Vaduz tomorrow. I am from Austria and already used my home-country-travel day today. Now it says in my Interrail App that Vaduz is part of Austria instead of Liechtenstein. Does it mean i would need to use again my home-country-ticket? Or is it a mistake?
Hi! I was thinking of starting my Interrail Summer by doing a trip in May, fly to London, then some days in UK (Scotland and back), Eurostar to Brussels (I was in Paris last year, so a different route) and fly back after 8/9 days from Germany or Poland where I can get a cheap flight. Any thoughts on best places in Scotland / elsewhere in UK as absolutely must visit? Do you think 1st class is worth the money in UK?
Folks Just checking if there is an alternate way to get from Gothenburg to Oslo in July as I believe the line is closed from repairs over an extended period. I think there is an alternate bus service but not sure if it is covered by my pass. Any information greatly appreciated Norm
Hello! I’m planning a 3 week trip in July 23 for myself and my two sons, 13 and 15. We are based in the U.K.The original high level plan was:London to Amsterdam - 3 nights Amsterdam to Berlin - 3 nights Berlin to Zermatt - 3 nights (this is proving tricky travel wise also been looking at 2 nights in Berlin, travel to Zurich 1 night then on to Zermatt)Zermatt to Venice- 2 nights (this looks like a nightmare - I really wanted to include Italy in this but am struggling)Italy to Lake Bled, Slovenia - 3 nightsLake Bled to Split Croatia - spend c. 1 week in Croatia fly homeSo keen to do night trains where possible and also avoid too many changes, I know Zermatt is making it tricky but it’s the top place my eldest wants to visit so really want to make it work. Plus it’s beautiful!if anyone has any suggestions for an itinerary that takes in most of the places above but includes Italy somehow - I can skip Germany on this trip if needed - that isn’t too complicated please share! I’m keen we spen
Hi everyone, I am unable to book the include BLS river cruise with my Eurail pass. The instructions says to put in the starting location as "Interlaken west (see)" and ending as "Thun (see)" but Interlaken west (see) is not in the Eurail application
Hello everyone! First off, I’ve never been to Europe and am attempting to plan a 16-day trip for my family in July. I am planning on purchasing a 10-Day Global Pass and started punching in the routes in the “Search Train Times in Europe” feature on this website to get an idea of travel time as well as which legs would require a reservation. Everything seemed pretty reasonable until I looked at Rome to Cannes (or anywhere in that area). It appeared that the travel time was over one day! On the app, it indicated that was about two days! Questions: is this accurate or am I reading something wrong I know that it may be an issue of which rails Eurail has access to. Is it common to purchase faster tickets separately for situations such as this? If so, what is the most reputable website to do so? Thanks in advance for any help you can give me. I consider myself relatively resourceful but am finding this process overwhelming, so I’m sure this won’t be my last post. Tentative outline of trip:
Hi everyone! I would like to go to Wroclaw for 2 or 3 days at the beginning of August.

Thanks for you help :)

Hi, I have a few questions on train links in the Balkans that information online continues to give me contradicting advice so I will list all of my questions here to try and sort it outIs there a functioning direct night train from Budapest to Bucharest - some sites say yes and other say no Is there a functioning direct train from Bucharest to Sofia - if not, what is advised to do in order to reach Sofia Is there a route from Sofia to Thessaloniki (for context I am travelling in Summer) Is there a train line connecting Serbia and Bosnia Should I generally just skip Serbia and Bosnia as they are too cumbersome to travel with train? If in Sofia, what is the best way to reach Croatia?Thanks!
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.
