Germany & Eastern Europe

Step into the pages of your favourite childhood fairytale book when you explore Germany or Eastern Europe. There is no denying the nostalgic sense of magic evoked as we uncover dreamy Bavarian castles, ancient emerald forests, and pastel-tinged villages. Peppering these enchanting landscapes, forward-thinking cities reveal an abundance of history and culture, blended with Imperial architecture, poignant monuments and lively piazzas.

Between explorations, tuck into some of the most delicious comfort food around; tasty Polish pierogi and hearty Montenegrin stew. Or retire to a traditional beer hall and indulge in a 'stein' of some of the world's best beer.

From the contemporary shopping centres of Berlin to the primeval forests of Belarus, the countries of Eastern Europe are diverse in culture, environment and history. Great Rail Journeys tours through Eastern Europe include a selection of holidays to amaze even the most seasoned of travellers. By using the knowledge of local guides we bring out hidden details in famous attractions and unearth a range of sights known only to the natives.
