Europe by Rail

Hayley Bass on 10 July 2017
Living in the UK, we are extremely fortunate to have a choice of countries easily accessible by rail. European trains are unrecognisable from what we know in the UK; luxury comes as standard with more space, on-board restaurants and a network of reliable high speed rail networks. You can travel from city to city, no time is wasted hanging about and you’ll arrive in your destination feeling relaxed and refreshed.

I arranged a trip for a customer whose dream was to embark on an adventure to Germany visiting the historical sites they’d longed to explore. They wanted a smooth, easy journey, so travelling by rail meant there were no lengthy waits at airports. With my expert advice, together we planned their adventure; they managed to travel completely by rail right from their home town, to London and then onto four German Cities: Cologne, Berlin, Dusseldorf and then Frankfurt.

Europe by rail is a must as you’ll see some of the most picturesque landscapes on the continent, travelling through dramatic mountainous areas, magnificent coastlines and beautiful cities. You can visit so many places all on one holiday experiencing history, culture, along with the unique accommodation on board a sleeper train; a wonderful way to wake up in a new destination feeling refreshed and ready to explore. Utilising the expert knowledge of a travel expert like myself will mean you can make the most of your time and budget and travelling Europe by rail is more affordable than you think.

My European Rail Highlights:

- Switzerland – stunning scenery and breath-taking views as you travel through the Swiss Alps on the world famous Glacier Express train.

- Italy – travel in style and luxury when you board the World famous Venice Simplon-Orient Express. Step back in time with vintage cabins, gastronomic cuisine and into a world of romance as you travel through Paris, vibrant Milan and Venice. - Scandinavia – Travel to Stockholm, and through Sweden’s glorious scenery as you head to Lapland and cross the Arctic Circle, followed by a magnificent journey on Northern Europe’s highest railway line, the Bergen Railway.

- Croatia, Slovenia and Montenegro – Enjoy this perfect combination all in one holiday. Taking in the mighty Austrian Alps on route to Slovenia. You’ll visit the picturesque Plitvice Lakes one of Croatia’s most beautiful national treasures. Discover the UNESCO World Heritage site of Dubrovnik old town.
