Trip Overview:

A twist on the classic city hopping trip, our Central Europe adventure crams a bit of everything into the perfect package. With two great European capitals, chance to unwind in stunning natural beauty and two night trains to maximise your time, this is an adventure that’s sure to spark your love affair with rail travel. 

Hop on board the Eurostar, before connecting to your overnight sleeper train. Enjoy a picnic onboard or alternatively explore the restaurant car - before bedding down. You’ll wake in Prague, rightly celebrated for its gothic spires and plentiful pilsner. Enjoy a food and beer tour with local guides, or explore the city by bike. Alternatively, simply wile away your 3 days meandering the pretty, soft-hued streets. 

Day 4 takes you on a voyage along the Elbe Valley - a fairytale landscape awash with vivid greens and blues. Disembark at Bad Schandau for a few days of forest-bathing. Saxon Switzerland is a huge national park straddling the German/Czech border, famed for its forests, towering sandstone pillars and natural bridges. 3 nights here is the perfect antidote to the frenetic city - re-fuel with hiking, watersports and hearty fare before your next stop.

Your final stop is the inimitable German capital. Berlin is one of those cities we visit every few years, only to find it different each time. Whether you want to dig into its fascinating past, immerse yourself in art or explore the more alternative side of life, Berlin has more to offer than you can discover in a lifetime - let alone 3 days. But don’t worry - you’ll be back.

On your return leg you’ll leave Berlin late evening, travelling overnight to arrive back in Brussels first thing. Enjoy a classic breakfast in Belgium, before the short hop back to London, and your onward journey home.
