Split, is an amazing coastal city with so much to offer. Breathtaking sunsets, sandy beaches and beautiful ancient architecture. You can really lose yourself exploring this wonderful city. I would also suggest putting a day aside to visit the nearby Islands with crystal clear water surrounding them. You will be blown away by the beauty each Island holds.

Split, Croatia -> Bled, Sloveniainterrail routes

Getting from Split to Bled is probably the most difficult transfer on this interrail route but I ensure you Bled is most definitely worth the visit. To start off your Journey you should hop on a night train (reservation needed) from Split to Croatia’s capital Zagreb. From here you will have a stopover for approximately 1 hour. This is the perfect excuse to go stretch your legs and buy some breakfast.

Then catch the 6.55 train from Zagreb to Bled Jezero (with one change over). Once you reach Bled Jezero you will have to get a local bus to the lake. The bus stop is located straight across from the train station and is relatively cheap.

Next Stop: Prague, Czech Republic interrail routes

Prague is an amazing city. It has a great nightlife scene and so many interesting places to explore. And for an extra bonus, it is super duper cheap. What I liked about Prague is it wasn’t expensive. You can walk around the city, experience the culture and make new friends all while spending barely any money.

Prague, Czech Republic -> Berlin, Germany  interrail routes

Next Stop: Berlin, Germanyinterrail routes

There is so much to see in this historic city. Berlin is big, very big. Unlike the other cities listed above. I recommend booking a hop on hop off bus tour. This will prevent you from missing out on all the top tourist attractions. It’s a great way to see the city without getting lost. I also recommend putting 3 or 4 days aside to explore Germanys Capital city.

Berlin, Germany -> Amsterdam, the Netherlands interrail routes

Trains times are subject to change on certain dates, be sure to check the times for your desired travel date.

Next Stop: Amsterdam, the Netherlands interrail routes

Amsterdam is a fantastic city, with so much to offer. Its colourful buildings, hundreds of bikes and endless amounts of canals make it quite a unique place to visit. There is so much to do, from going on a boat cruise, exploring the red light district or visiting Anne Franks house. It is a city you can visit time and time again and never get bored and should 100% be part of your interrail adventure.

Amsterdam, the Netherlands -> Paris, France  interrail routes

(via the interrail Website)

A reservation for this direct train is needed. I recommend booking 2 to 3 days in advance as it is quite a popular route.

Last Stop: Paris, France interrail routes

It wouldn’t be a European adventure without stopping off in the city of love. Paris is a wonderful city, although it can be very expensive, it is definitely worth it. Much like Berlin, Paris is a big city, however, I recommend walking as much as you possibly can. This way you can experience the culture, city life and all that Paris has to offer. The picture above was taking from Galleries Lafayette.

What is Interrail?

Interrail are train passes that allow passengers to travel freely through mainland Europe without the need to purchase a seperate ticket each time. Get ready to book the trip of your a lifetime!

What type of Interrail Passes can I purchase?

There are three types of Interrail passes, a global pass, a one country pass and a premium pass. The Global pass allows passengers to travel through the majority of European countries using the one train ticket. The One Country pass allows passengers to travel freely through one country. The Premium Pass allows passengers to travel Italy or Spain with pre-booked seats and unlimited journeys a day.

I hope you found this post helpful. I would also recommend downloading the Official Interrail app (IOS or Android) for on the go trains times and information. For booking accommodation search websites such as bookings.com, Airbnb.com and ebookers.com.
