This is a totally new edition of a very popular guide. Europe by Rail shows just how easy it is to explore Europe by train. The book is packed with tips on ticketing, fares and accommodation. Detailed descriptions of 50 key rail routes across the continent are at the heart of Europe by Rail. These routes showcase great options for travelling by train to popular tourist regions, but also pinpoint journeys well worth making in their own right. From the Alps to the Baltic, from the shores of the North Sea to the Mediterranean, Europe by Rail is an invitation to adventure. For short city breaks or an entire month exploring Europe, this book is the perfect partner for journey planning and for taking along on the trip. Europe by Rail is more than just a guidebook. The book has plenty of evocative prose and words to make you think. With its nicely opinionated style and lots of cameo accounts of travel history, there's plenty here for armchair travellers too. It is a book which says as much about landscapes, cultures and the very idea of Europe as it does about great destinations and Europe's finest rail trips.
"Remarkable, not just in the field of railway travel, but in the realm of literature too...A sheer delight, an indispensable book for both real life and armchair travellers and a spectacular achievement, of which the likes of George Bradshaw and Thomas Cook would feel proud. Gardner and Kries are doyennes of European travel and subtle connoisseurs of Europe's railways." From a review of the 13th edition written by Vitali Vitaliev and published in Engineering and Technology (E&T) Magazine. A detailed guide for planning your rail journeys. The guidebook is packed with information you'll need for planning your train journeys around Europe - be it a meandering trip using Eurail or InterRail or a quick break to just one destination. Detailed route descriptions and tips on fares and ticketing help you navigate your way around Europe's rail network. The authors of Europe by Rail are travel writers and slow travel aficionados. And they are passionate about rail travel. The book captures the essence of each journey. You'll find facts, ideas and inspiration aplenty in well-penned prose which invites you to hop aboard and discover another side of Europe.
Whether you are planning a long journey by rail or are an armchair traveller, Europe by Rail has something for everybody. The book records the sheer variety of European life and landscapes - join us as we watch lakes, mountains and townscapes slip by beyond the carriage window.
