With this pass you have the advantage of traveling by train every day, or scattered throughout a two-month period. These 4 European gems contain some of Europe’s most picturesque landscapes and mouth-watering cuisines. Of course, in the mix are also world-renowned museums, mountain excursions that will leave you breathless, and historical sites – ripped right from the history books.

Imagine yourself strolling through the streets of Paris, then hopping on a train to Zurich to experience the majesty of Switzerland. The peaceful surroundings of the Swiss countryside will make it difficult for you to leave ! Germany awaits you with its charming villages, historic sites, and delicious food and drink. And Austria is alive with far more than the sound of music, although, playing host to the set of such an iconic film, being the hometown of Mozart, and boasting the sounds of the spectacular Vienna Boys Choir, does attract visitors from around the globe.

From cosmopolitan cities to smaller towns and villages, you can explore it all with the flexibility offered by a 4-country Eurail Select Pass.
