What all does Eurail cover?

I am so confused on how to use the trains in Europe. We are going to small towns across Netherlands, Belgium, and Germany. Someone said to get a Eurail pass, but on their website it doesn’t show most of the towns I want to go to on the drop-down menu. Do I skip the Eurail pass and book each train ride individually before I leave the US (like from the DB website, etc.), or do I blindly purchase a Eurail pass and just hop on the trains over there without reserving? Totally lost right now 😦

You need to check that the railway companies you will travel with are included in Eurail, but almost all in those countries are. You can look here.

If the place you want to travel to not is in the list you can always add it manually when creating your journey. 

If you ar travelling this summer there is a special offer in Germany, the 9 EUR ticket, so it might be cheaper to buy single tickets in Belgium and the Netherlands than using Eurail. You can calculate on that.
