Hello :) my girlfriend and I are planning to travel through Scandinavia with the interrail pass. We will start on the 15th of July and will be travelling for 2 months. I was wondering if any of you have some tips on what to see. Mainly we want to hike a lot, go kayaking, maybe rafting. Also we will take a tent with us, so that we can save some money. If you have any recommendations for hikes, places to see or anything about scandinavia please let us know. Christian
On your way from Berlin to Prague your train will stop first in Dresden and afterwards in Bad Schandau (the last german stop). I second to stop atleast for few hours here. Bad Schandau and Saxon Switzerland offer some nice nature spots and even the railfan have something to explore.The main tourist attraction in Saxon Switzerland is ofcourse the Prebish Gate or the Bastei with a beautifull view on the valley of the River Elbe but i will show you my secret spot that is till yet not so crowded as the “Bastei” and the village Rathen.From Bad Schandau goes a tram that use pretty old Tramcars to the Lichtenhainer Waterfall from here it´s a short walk to the “Kuhstall” (cowhed). You work up to a hill and it can be exhausting but the view you will get worths the effort.the “Kuhstall” (cowshed)View from the Kuhstall on the NatureThanks to @runner.on.rails for the pictures.For me as fan of transportation like ofcourse the old tram from Bad Schandau to Lichtenhainer Waterfall.

I have an interrail global pass and from this part of the trip, I have to go from Slovenia to Thessaloniki. I am super flexible. I am basically looking for the cheap and awesome. My plan was passing through Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia, Macedonia and end up in Greece but I don’t seem to find train connections there (I am starting to wonder why..).Interrail says that there are trains in those countries. I read somewhere that I have to do so through that country rail company. Other say it is better by bus (I prefer things that are included in the global pass as I already paid for it, but maybe that is the solution). My worry is that I cannot find anything because there is no train or that I go somewhere and moving from there to the next country is not possible by train. Does someone has a good suggestion?
Hi, Me and my friend are currently traveling with a Interrail Global Pass. Right now we are in Italy, and would really like to go to Greece already in this week. We have tried to look up the train- and busstations in Greece, but it doesn’t seem like the easiest task, to figure out how to get from place to place in Greece. Has any of you tried to travel with Interrail in Greece, and know how to get around? We are really i some desperate need of help! Thanks
Hello everyone, I was just wondering if there is a better way to get to Morocco from Spain. My husband and I will arrive in Paris on April 15, our original plan was to stay in Paris for a few days, then head to Barcelona for a few days, then go to Madrid, then go to Morocco after that. We purchased Eurail global pass.We thought about taking the train from Madrid to Seville as it seems like a close stop over before Morocco, and then take a bus to either Tarifa or Algeciras and then take the ferry cross the Strait of Gibraltar and get to Tangier.It seems like a lot of travel just to get to Tangier from Madrid, so I had a look at the flight options, and it worked out at least 155 euro for the flight including 1 checked and 1 carry on luggage. We then need to head back to London on May 5 as we have 2 nights accommodations booked for the King’s coronation. I was thinking on the way back from Morocco, we can get to Seville, and stay there for a couple of nights then flight back to London ins
Hello, I’m prospecting for a travel in Europe but I am indecisive ! On the one hand, I wanted to visit Austria/Hungary and Slovakia because it is easy to make a reservation by train (pass) and that I want for a long time to go back to Austria and visit Hungary, and moreover because I want to see beautiful lakes. But I’m scared it is dangerous in some eastern cities and I prefer tovisit smaller typical cities, and on the second hand, I also want to visit Germany on a larger scale than I did ( I went to Mannheim and Heidelberg) and I also want to visit Netherlands/ Belgium ( Brussels) and if possible one or many cities in Germany ( so sadly, Berlin is too far from me ):What do you think about it ? What should I do in priority ? Thank you in advance
Hello, my family of 4 are looking to travel multiple countries, including going into Southern Italy. I havent bought the global passes yet as Im not sure if we’ll need the unlimited as Im still in planning stages. When I go into ‘find train times’ I cant find any trains connecting South of Rome. It just pops up with a little red x. We’re looking to go from Rome to Naples to Palermo. Any advice would be helpful!

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...
I saw the website stated that there is regional train from Milan to Tirano. Therefore, I’m planning to take train and then take the Bernina Express at Tirano. However, I saw the train journey is totally different during the early of December (2 hours) compare to the date that I travel (15 hours). Does the timetable accurate?
Hey!Would be nice to make a collection of offers that can be well combined with an Interrail pass (leisure passes, museumpasses etc.). I am going to start with some interesting offers:Swiss Museum Pass, valid for one year, unlimited visits of museums and some castles (500+ attractions) for 166 CHF per year. If you have a Halffare-Card or GA even cheaper Dutch Museum Pass, valid for one year, when buying a preliminary one (direct in the museum) you can only visit 5 museums at once. Only after you get the plastic card you can visit unlimited one. Price 64,9 Euro + some administration fee for delivery (around 3 euro). They also deliver abroad. Buying online beforehand is only possible with a Dutch bank account. Around 400 museums can be visited for free after purchase. museumPASSmusées (Belgium): Price 59 euro, order online. Only available with address in Belgium, so you need to know someone in Belgium to whom you can send it. 200+ museums Museum-Pass-Musées (Switzerland, France, Germany)

Hey community, in September I will travel for the first time with an Interrail global pass from Germany to Switzerland. Does anybody know if I can use my pass or get a discount for the funicular in Lugano to Mount San Salvatore? I saw on their homepage that they grant a discount for the following category: Holders of ½ price, GA or SBB 1-day travel pass commune Thank you 🙏🏻
Hi! I printed out the map showing a broad selection of available railway lines with the global pass. This is showing a connection going from Bayonne-Biarritz-Hendaye-Irun-San Sebastian, but when using the planner (app and web), every route passing from France to Spain is going down via Narbonne. Is it possible to travel from France to Spain via the west coast of France to the north coast of Spain?
Hi All! My family are planning to travel from Dubai to Brussels, Amsterdam, Berlin and Prague from 30 April-14 May.

Hi!We are two Spanish students that will be doing their interrail in Norway from the 6th to the 14th of July. We were wondering if we will see other interrailers over there at that time, we will go to Oslo, Aandalsnes, Bergen, and Vøringsfossen, among others 😁. We are open to meeting and traveling with new people hehe! If you are going to Norway also in some of the dates that we have we can see if we coincide at any point in our trips.
Hi,I am planning a scandinavia trip for 1 or 2 months sometime in April-June on my own and would like to spend a few days in Ylläs. Is it correct that there is absolutely no “direct” bus connection or so between Kolari and Gällivare? So the only public transport way is to make the huge detour via Lulea etc? Do you know where I could ask for a rideshare if maybe someone is travelling by car? Or how high do you think the chances are that I will meet someone along the way that is planning this route? :D
Hello!I am trying to organise Bucharest-> Istanbul (next week).I checked on the CFR (Romanian train's website) and I see only a very complicated solution (4 changes and it is not possible to book online).Somebody did this route recently and suggest how to do it?Is it possible to get the availability only at the train office in Romania? Is there any night train to avoid so many stop? Thank you!
Bonjour,Avec mon amie, nous nous apprêtons à aller en Grèce pour 5 mois. Pour des raison écologiques, nous voulons y aller en train. J'ai déjà utilisé interrail pour un voyage il y a quelques années, c'est donc tout naturellement que j'ai pensé le réutiliser pour ce voyage. Cependant, nous ne souhaitons pas prendre plus d'une semaine pour aller jusqu'en Grèce, existe-t-il un pass qui nous permettrait d'aller en Grèce en 3 jours de voyage ? Et quel est sont prix ?Merci d'avance,Noémie
Hi all,New to this website, so sorry if this is not the right place for this.Myself and my partner are currently at beginning stages of planning an interrailing trip for June 2023. We’ll be in Barcelona at the start of the month - but ideally some of the other countries we’d like to visit are Croatia, Austria and Switzerland. Our rough plan at the moment is to fly from Barcelona to Budapest. Then take trains from Budapest to Split, then back up to Zagreb - onto Vienna and then Zurich. We are thinking of purchasing the 5 Day in 1 Month pass - hoping that this will cover us. We are just looking for general advice really. Does this route seem doable to people? Have people done anything similar? We are cautions that this will involve a lot of night trains - are these harder to reserve? Any tips or suggestions would be great :)
Hello everybody,as I'm collecting informations for my next trip (maybe summer 2022) through Scandinavia, I just found out that a swedish company will offer a route from Berlin- Hamburg -Malmö- Stockholm. Can't believe how lucky I am, because it travels to Hamburg, and that would be the perfect route for me. Wanted to share this information and happiness with you. 😊Just wondering how the "recliner seats" will be, sounds like you can line them up, that it's an even place to sleep on. And that or a normal seat are the only options for solo traveller... Has anyone from you yet traveled with Snalltaget? And expierence with this recliner seats?https://www.snalltaget.se/en/berlinBest wishes,Dot
