The best of Germany, Austria & Eastern Europe
From the magnificent snow-capped Alps that line southern Germany's border with Austria to the wide and pristine white sandy beaches that fringe the Baltic Sea at its northern tip, Germany possesses many areas of outstanding natural beauty. The tranquil lakes of the Austrian Tyrol and the glittering cities of Salzburg and Vienna are also easily accessible from London with an overnight stop.
Getting there by rail
Germany and Austria enjoy one of Europe's most advanced, efficient and reliable rail networks. Travelling between Germany's major cities on a high-speed ICE (InterCity Express) train is easy, comfortable and enjoyable, but a comprehensive regional network ensures that virtually any destination in the country can be reached by train.
Benefits of rail
The European love of rail travel has seen significant investment in the continent's railways over the last few decades. Legacy rolling stock has been replaced with modern and comfortable trains and tracks have been upgraded or re-laid, particularly in eastern Germany - as necessary to ensure a largely punctual and smoothly-running rail system.
Poland is a land of remarkable cities, beautiful landscapes and small rustic towns. Steeped in a detailed and poignant history with a thriving traditional culture, the country has many memorable sights and experiences to offer travellers. For a comfortable and relaxing journey, train travel in Poland provides excellent links between major cities, such as Krakow and Warsaw, in addition to a selection of scenic rural routes.
Croatia has retained much of its old-world charm and a popular rail network ensures links between major cities as well as scenic regional routes which showcase Croatia's unspoilt landscapes, wonderful Adriatic coast and historic towns and villages. Seeing Slovenia by train opens up a world of possibilities, whether you'd prefer to visit the glacial waters of Lake Bled, the country's crowning glory or the capital, Ljubljana.
