    Brussels to Prague: The slow way

    A trip by Hidden Europe

    This itinerary is recommended by the editors of hidden europe, a print publication which celebrates European lives and landscapes. Many hidden europe readers are devotees of slow travel, taking time to make the most of a journey. It’s perfectly possible to speed from Brussels to Prague in a day, but here’s an alternative: a four-day dawdle across Europe that takes in the Ardennes region of eastern Belgium, the Moselle Valley and the Rhine Gorge, plus the hill country of Bohemia. Enjoy a feast of fine scenery on this rail trip.

    Paris to Munich via The Alps

    A trip by Hidden Europe

    This four-day itinerary is a favourite with readers of hidden europe, a print publication exploring cultures and communities across Europe. Most travellers heading to Munich from Paris just take the fast train. But take a look at this wonderful alternative rail route which loops south through Switzerland. We’ve chosen three smaller communities for the overnight stays, one in France’s Burgundy wine region, the second on the shores of Lake Geneva and the last in a remote valley in the Swiss Alps. Your journey includes a good part of the Glacier Express route through Switzerland and the famous Arlberg Railway through the Austrian Tyrol. Take time to taste Burgundy wines in Beaune, and enjoy a late afternoon boat trip on Lake Geneva in Switzerland. Few rail journeys pack in so much fine scenery. The journey on the final day even follows the only railway across the Principality of Liechtenstein.

    Slow trains through Italy

    A trip by Hidden Europe

    Just look at this one-week tour which has been designed for us by the editors of hidden europe, a publication which surely rates as Europe’s quirkiest travel mag. The All Aboard brief to hidden europe was simple: choose a clutch of fine mid-sized Italian cities, ideally ones which don’t have quite the crowds you find in Milan, Florence or Venice. They came up with Mantua, Siena, Assisi, Ferrara and Vicenza, so there’s a Renaissance theme to this Italian adventure which starts in Turin and ends in Bergamo. You may want to extend this tour by spending two or even three nights in some of these cities. Quite a bit of the rail travel is on local trains, so this really is a chance to put your slow travel principles into practice.

    This is an approximation of the trip me and my wife did. It was an amazing trip! The highlights was boarding the wrong train in Lyon, which led us to meeting a nice woman who took us home to her place and helped us get back where we were supposed to go. Bruges was a fantastic experience as well.
