Why and where to travel by train?

The easy answer is to explore more places. When it comes to train travel, going the fastest route between two destinations is not (always) the goal.

It is more about settling back into your seat and enjoy the experience, one station at a time. You get to explore more places, go off the beaten track and discover hidden gems. Simply put, when going by train it's the journey that is the goal - not the destination.

So relax and read along on the benefits of train travel.

Go by train – explore more

If you ask us, the main benefit of train compared to other transportation, is definitely that you can visit several places in only one trip. You get to tick off many boxes on the bucket list at once. And there's no final destination – take another way back to see something else.

You decide where to go

You got the opportunity to skip the major tourist destinations and a fixed A-B journey set by a travel company. It's really you who decide where to go, when it suits you.

Hidden Gems

That way you can explore unknown places or get directly into nature. It's a true opportunity to discover hidden gems, with fewer tourists. Especially good in pandemic times.

Sustainable tourism

And when going off the beaten track, you nurture smaller destinations to economically blossom. That way, you take part in reducing the major climate impact on the main tourist hot spots.

Great views all along the way

Last but not least, you get to see more than clouds or the back of a truck. You’ll experience the beauty of Europe from the front row. Sit back, relax and enjoy great views all along the way.
