Tailor Made Germany Holidays

Train Travel in Germany - A Simple Pleasure

Germany's enviable reputation for good design, efficiency, and common sense is demonstrated most effectively by the country's modern rail network. Since the punctuality and reliability of train services is virtually guaranteed and the passenger rail network seemingly covers every inch of the country, there is no more convenient and comfortable way to experience Germany's many highlights than with a bespoke holiday itinerary from GRJ independent.

Berlin, Germany's laid-back yet innovative capital city, is a tantalising mix of the modern and the historical. As you explore, you'll discover iconic landmarks such as the Berlin Wall, Reichstag Building, Brandenburg Gate, and Checkpoint Charlie. History aside, Berlin's primary aim seems to be the encouragement of hedonism.

Whatever makes you happy, whether admiring fine architecture or artworks, sampling some of the fine beers for which Germany is famous, enjoying the best classical or contemporary entertainments or bargain hunting in an eclectic selection of colourful street markets, you can rely on Berlin to indulge you.

Browse our range of sample itineraries below and then tailor your experience to incorporate your favourite excursions and hotels, allowing you to create your own unique German rail holiday - you can even select the class of your rail and/or air journeys, and the scope of your rail tour of Germany can be as wide or as narrow as you like.

Discover Germany with a Bespoke Itinerary

The ease of reaching one destination from another might encourage you to broaden your rail tour of Germany to include further cities; cosmopolitan Munich offers plenty to see and do and provides the perfect base from which to explore beautiful Bavaria, an area of Germany famed for its forests, lakes, and fairy-tale castles as well as the stunning Bavarian Alps.

Cologne, notable for its magnificent twin-spired cathedral, is a history book brought to life and an unmissable destination if you appreciate architecture which encompasses almost every style from Roman times to the modern day. Alternatively, you might like to escape the city for a while and enjoy a little of Germany's abundant natural beauty. 

Few regions showcase this quite as effectively as the stunning Rhine Gorge, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Here you can swap the train for a boat and gently cruise along the Rhine, to admire spectacular views and discover some of Germany's traditional winemaking villages along this stretch of the river.

Germany's many important historic sites, scenic countryside and historically and culturally rich cities, combined with perhaps the most efficient railways in Europe, ensure that the travelling aspects of your independent rail tour are as memorable as the destinations they'll lead you to.
