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 destinations

If you ask us, the main benefit with train compared to other types of travel, is definitely that you can visit several destinations 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 can skip the main tourist destinations with a fixed A-B journey, set by a travel company. It's you that decide where to go, when it suits you.

Hidden Gems

That way you can get to unexplored places or directly to nature. It's a true opportunity to discover hidden gems, with fewer tourists. Especially in Corona 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 massive 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.
