5 Great Reasons to Interrail Germany

Germany is the home of beautiful, varied landscapes, fascinating, bustling cities, and fantastic people. Regularly cited by those who Interrail Germany as one of the favourite destinations of their trip, and bordered by multiple countries, this country is definitely worthy of a place on your Interrail itinerary. If you don’t believe us, here are five great reasons why!

Cities

Germany is full of fantastic and diverse cities, spanning the entire width and breadth of the country. Visit capital city Berlin, the impressive port town of Hamburg and easy-going Freiburg with its abundant sunshine and cultural history.

If you have time to spare on your Interrail Germany trip, you can also pay visits to Cologne, Frankfurt, Munich, and more. Each city has plenty to offer in terms of tourism, with interesting history and architecture abound.

Beer

If there is one thing Germany is truly well known for around the world, it is their fantastic taste in beer. While you use your Interrail or Eurail Germany Pass to navigate this European behemoth of a country, you will likely find yourself coming across a vast array of different alcoholic beverages – beers being prominent among them. Many regions will have their own specialities in this regard too.

Grab a Stein (a glass tankard capable of holding two pints of your preferred booze) and guzzle some down with locals and fellow travellers alike. As well as the beers, look out for the classic party drink Jägermeister, which has its origins in the German town of Wolfenbüttel.

Location

The country is ideally located for anyone looking to travel in Europe, which is why so many people choose to visit. Many get a specific Eurail or Interrail Germany Pass, in order to travel and experience as much as possible of what Germany can offer, before leaving to travel other parts of Europe with an Interrail Global Pass.

Because Germany has borders with nine other European countries, including France, The Netherlands, Denmark, and Switzerland, it is very simple to include it in your itinerary.

Efficiency

The classic German stereotype is that they are a very efficient people. On the football (or soccer) pitch, this translates to perfectly executed penalty kicks ruthlessly driven home in extremely high pressure circumstances.

When it comes to your Interrail or Eurail Germany trip, this translates to a public transport system that runs regularly, quickly and on time, to the places you want to go, with minimal fuss. Quite simply, it gets the job done. Naturally, the vast majority of train journeys will be covered by your Interrail or Eurail Pass, along with several buses and even ferries (some may require a reservation fee).

History

Germany is a country with a deeply interesting, although sometimes mournful history – particularly when it comes to the two worldwide conflicts which took place in the first half of the 20th century. Head over to Nuremburg to see the place which was once used for so many of Adolf Hitler’s rallies, and then later on, for the Nuremburg Trials in which many Nazis were held to account for their actions.

You may also enjoy to walk the line which shows where the Berlin Wall used to be, when it was dividing East and West Germany. Although most of it is now gone, a small part of around 2km remains as a symbol of the victory of freedom against oppression.

With Interrail, Germany and Europe are easily accessible!

Germany is home to a number of large international airports, which means it is an easy place to begin or end your Interrail Journey.

If that is what you’d like to do, you can find the best flights via Skyscanner, using the free tool below.

Interrail / Eurail Germany – what to do, where to go?

Whilst we are strong advocates of the spontaneous approach when it comes to your Eurail or Interrail Germany route planning, thinking ahead a little never hurt anyone!

To that end, here is our top 5 list of places to see and things to do on your Interrail or Eurail Germany trip – feel free to use them, or add your own in the comments!

Rhine Valley Scenery

A very popular route with Interrail Germany travellers, taking the Rhine Valley Scenic Train from Mainz or Koblenz to Cologne is every bit the quintessential Interrail experience.

Along the journey to Cologne you are treated to one amazing view after the other, including seemingly endless vineyards, and the impossibly blue water of Western Europe’s longest river. And best of all, you can enjoy it all with a refreshingly crisp glass of the local Riesling white wine.

Neuschwanstein

If you’ve always wanted to see what a Disney-style palace would look like in real life, Neuschwanstein definitely deserves a place on your Interrail Germany route.

Ludwig II’s audaciously grandiose creation, built out of his own personal fortune, was literally the inspiration behind the design of a great many Disney castles and palaces that came after it.

It is hardly surprising that this is one of the most impressive castles Germany has to offer. To get there take a regional train from Munich to Füssen, whereupon you can take a bus to the castle grounds.

Try Cologne’s Three Liquids

First of all, hit one of the local bars in Cologne and get yourself a pint of Kölsch. And then another, and another. Your waiter or waitress will mark the number of pints you have had on your coaster, and continue bringing you refills until you eventually cover your glass with your it.

After that you’ll probably be craving some food, but we recommend that you save your visit to the chocolate museum for the next day (have a bratwurst instead, much more filling). Once at the museum enjoy the sheer decadence of being served liquid chocolate, before picking up some eau de Cologne (produced since 1972), which should help to mask some of the gluttony shame.

Black Forest

Definitely one for the more outdoorsy-types, this immaculate woodland stretches all the way from the South-West border Germany shares with France, to Germany’s meeting point with Austria, Lake Bodensee. Perfect for walking around and just enjoying the peace of nature, or for more advanced hiking if you’re in the mood for it.

If you’re not, then simply find a picturesque spot to enjoy some of the famous Black Forest Gateau which takes its name from the place before enjoying some beautiful scenery on the Black Forest rail route between Offenburg and Konstanz.

Berlin

There’s a lot more to Berlin than a wall that is no longer there. As well as its obviously fascinating history, Berlin has one of the most vibrant art and culture scenes you’ll find anywhere.

There’s a little hipster in all of us, and that is the part that will love Berlin, because of its penchant for street art, little boutique record shops, cafés and fashion outlets, as well as fantastic nightclubs and naturally, museums. Germany’s capital is definitely worthy of a spot on your Interrail Germany itinerary.
