Durante mi viaje interrail, puesto que durante un mismo día puedo coger todos los trenes que quiera, voy a aprovechar para coger trenes que circulen por una misma ciudad para moverme por ella (ejm Berlín Hbf - Berlín Ostbahnhof): . Tengo el pase Interrail impreso y me gustaría saber cómo es la forma correcta de apuntar cada trayecto en el pase o si no es necesario hacerlo.
Hi,I had come up with the idea of doing a nice trip with my brother from Budapest to Helsinki, stopping in a lot of countries we have never been to. However, deepening my research in this page, I have come to understand that:there is pretty much no train from Warsaw to Helsinki, it would all be buses + ferry some countries are really pass-friendly but others are not Our desired travel dates are from 1st to 15th Aug. Would you be able to tell me what itinerary could I do that is train-friendly and that does not involve Germany / Italy or anything West of that, since we have visited all those countries? I know the question is very open ended, but truly any tips will help. Have spent hours soaking info on this forum, but most of the questions I find are for Western Europe. Thanks!
Is my plan for West & South EU for around 4 weeks doable? What wouldnt you recommend and what to add/change?
Im new to this so any recommendations/info is appreciated!I want to experience a few citys, historic places and specific nature.I would be able to tour Europe for like 4 weeks. I’d start around either Cologne for “West” or around Frick(Switzerland) for “South”. Maybe I could split these two for two seperate routes since I haven’t found any good connections at all between “West” and “South”. Also it would be great to visit authentic restaurants, preferably near these places, for traditional meals/foods that are also vegetarian based, which I’m currently researching. Spending the nights luxuriously is not a priority, in fact I’d be more than good with hostels/couch sharing/ airbnb. The travel is in focus not the hotel.//////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////Legend:[?] = spots to stop by if doable but not essential[*] = Each star indicates my guess on minimim time needed to spend here////////
Is the sleeper train from Ljubliana to Budapest running this year? Specifically the 00:30-8:59 on 25th August There was no mention of it on The man in seat 61. https://www.seat61.com/international-trains/trains-from-Ljubljana.htm#Ljubljana-Budapest However in my copy of the European Rail Timetable summer 2023 edition it is shown and on trainline it appears but says unavailable. while OBB does say there is a train but there is no option to book a seat let alone a sleeper. Is there a limited services or will i need to look at an alternative route? was hoping to not travel that long throughout the day.
ticket staat in de app met vertrekstation Den Haag Centraal via Rotterdam naar Parijs en verder voor 26 juli a.s. Nu blijken er werkzaamheden te zijn tussen Den Haag en Rotterdam, dus start de reis per trein pas in Rotterdam. Moet ik nu een nieuw ticket aanmaken in de app of kan ik op Rotterdam CS door de poortjes met m'n huidige ticket?
Hello everyone again! I have now specific questions about some train routes and seat reservations on them./I’m about to buy a 10 day Eurail global pass, to use it from the 14th to the 28th of September this year, I understood that these ten days can be used in a 2 month period, not necessarily day to day. Is that correct?Also, I’ve read on some of the topics in this big community that seat reservations are better to book on the train’s company website rather than the eurail website. Is that correct as well? (Please don’t give me names yet of the companies because i’m really a mega rookie on this train set reservations, that will be asked on a different topic (bear with me please)The train routes and dates that i’ll love to book without missing any of them are (all of the for 6 adults and a 2 year old baby - if you can tell me if my baby pays for a seat if so how much and in wich trains on the list below)Train from Milano to Rome, on September 15th, around 6:30 am local time - one way t
Vraagje:Wanneer ik een trip heb gepland op een dag ( bv van Nederland naar Napels) maar ik besluit onderweg om niet naar Napels te gaan maar naar Rome.Hoe kan ik dit dan wijzigen in mijn originele trip/ plan voor die dag?En gaat dit dan ten koste van een extra reisdag omdat ik terplekke en onderweg mijn plannen wijzig?Ik blijf wel op dezelfde dag reizen, dus heb geen nieuwe reisdag eraan hoeven te besteden. Ik ben benieuwd!Dank voor het meedenkenGroet remy
Hi, I plan to visit San Sebastian - Granada - Barcelona on October to November 2023 all via train. However, I can’t find trains for my travel period. Is it just because it’s still early to have a schedule on my travel dates? Or is it possible that no trains will be operating on my travel date? Appreciate the help. Thanks!
Hi! I’m planning to do a route in Scandinavia this summer and after doing Norway I wanted to go to northern Sweden and then Finland. I tried to create a route on the rail planner app which went from Bodoe to Kiruna to Rovaniemi, but I can’t find any train available. Maps at best gave me a bus route from Bodoe to Kiruna but nothing else to go to Rovaniemi. Does anyone know how I can get there with public transportation? Would I be forced to go back to Oslo and then through Stockolm in order to get to Kiruna by train? Finally would I be also forced to take the ferry at Stockholm in order to get to Finland and then take the train to Rovaniemi? If anyone else has done this route or a similar one and has some input or someone whose from there could help me I would apreciate it very much. Thank you!
Hi. Having difficulty finding the location of train seats. I am booked on the EuroCity 379 from Berlin to Prague and have been assigned seats "Pl. 93 94, 2 middle, table". Are these aisle seats that are part of a table for 4? The only seat layout I can find shows 93 and 94 as aisle seats but they are not part of a table setup. Thanks for any help/guidance!
Hello,we would like to do an Interrail trip through France in summer. Do we need to plan extra time at the station in Paris Est and Montpellier Saint Roch as tickets are checked at the platform before departure if we are traveling in a classic TGV? How extensive are the controls?Best regardsThorben
Hi,We are from Australia and have no recent experience with European train travel other than managing to catch the Eurostar from London to Paris last Sunday.We are catching the 9.40am train from Paris to Barcelona this Saturday leaving from Paris Gare Lyon. What time should we arrive at Paris Gare Lyon? We prefer to leave ample time so that we are not stressed, have a bit of contingency time. We are travelling with four children (aged 10-15) and have four suitcases.Also do I assume correctly that this train originates in Paris, and that therefore there will be ample boarding time?

Hello everyone! Me and my family (6 adults and a 2 year old baby) are planning our trip around europe (1 month) and we have the eurail global pass and each of us have a 23 kg suitcase and a small bag. Are we allow to carry that luggage with us on those specific routes I’ve pointed in the tittle of this conversation? Please help me as we need to travel with our luggage because we will be going from country to country and can’t leave our clothes behind specially with a baby. I was looking on eurail website and couldn’t find specific information. I’m asking about these trains because we won’t be carrying our luggage on buses or metro trains during the day . Thank you so much in advanced for your kind help! Greetings from Peru

HiThis summer (July 25) I would like to travel from budapest to Brasov. I would like to take the train from 09:10 to 22:46However, when I want to reserve a seat via the interrail reservation site, it says that reservation is not possible. Through the interrail site, I don't see this train listed. But if I look a week earlier or a week later it is listed.If I look on the Hungarian booking site I see the train direct is listed. Is the direct train going or are there works in progress?Is it possible to buy the same train in advance in another way, since booking via the interrail site does not work (it says Prices unavailable) and via the Hungarian train company it is not possible to buy an interrail seat reservation.
We have 1st class reservations on the train….through the Chunnel...from London St. Pancras to Paris. We are Canadians and are wondering where we go through customs and immigration and, if at the beginning of the trip, how much time to allow? Also….as first time users of the European train system...how much time to arrive in advance at the station?
