Brussels to Prague: The slow way

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.
