Overview

Nothing quite delivers the old world to new world contrast like the Eurail Select Pass including the Czech Republic and Germany. It gives you extensive travel on the national rail networks of the Czech Republic and Germany, with your choice of first or second class rail travel for 4, 5, 6, 8 or 10 days within a two-month period. Saverpass discounts available for 2 or more traveling together. You can also decide whether you’d prefer those travel days to be consecutive or non-consecutive.

Let’s start with the regal architecture of the Czech Republic. While Prague is its most popular and modern city, you’ll find one stately site after another on its city streets. Majestic buildings twinkle at night, with the glowing warmth of gentle lights illuminating the evening sky. Yet, the Czech trains can be modern marvels, including its SuperCity tilting trains, the fastest and most recent addition to the Czech rail service. And while Prague’s spirit is firmly planted in the 21st century, don’t forget the Moravian capital of Brno— gateway to the vineyards, and Český Krumlov, on the UNESCO list for its preserved Renaissance architecture.

From the Czech Republic, we’re off to Germany, from Prague to Munich, Hamburg, or Berlin by train. The German rail system is extraordinarily efficient and economical, able to reach almost every city in Germany. And few rail systems offer its modern conveniences : engineered as well as any German car on the Autobahn. (Only the Autobahn is often slower by comparison.) Use your Eurail Select Pass to travel on the ultra-quiet, high-speed ICE (Inter-City Express) trains, or start your own onboard Oktoberfest any time of year, with someone else at the wheel. You’ll even find your pass offers additional travel discounts on transportation, hotels and attractions to make its attractiveness even more undeniable. The Eurail Select Pass. It’s everything but complicated.

    "Train travel is ideal for Europe. The countryside is very pictoresque and since you are not driving you can watch the scenery. The trains are comfortable and train stations are easy to get to , unlike most airports ! "
