- "European Rail Passes" Lewis m. 26/10/2013
The german rail system, particularly in southern germany, where we travelled, was very good and has been for a number of years. The Czech Republic railway, I can't comment on, as we travelled from Stuttgart to Nurnberg and then by bus to Prague. There is no direct rail link, as it closed, some years ago, due to lack of patronage. In southern germany, (and in the remainder of Germany) because of the extensive railway system, it is possible to see a great deal, using the German Rail Pass or a combination, with other European countries. One can have a day out, in cities or towns, far apart and still return the same day. The pass, for non Europeans, gives considerable savings, on the normal fares and can be used for a set number of days ( depending on what you paid for). We normally, buy the first class option, which although a little more expensive, gives you a much better chance of a comfortable seat and surroundings, on a 2, 3 or 4 hour rail trip, without booking. I would recommend these passes to anyone who is considering travelling in Germany and /or other European countries. I can not comment on the various other countries rail systems but in Germany they are excellent alue Value for money Convenience
