Budapest's trendy districts and vintage markets in Paris are just two stops on their list: Since July 8, two of our reporters have been traveling through Europe on an Interrail tour. Follow their trip day after day!
One ticket, 12 cities, 22 days — all aboard the European express! Starting on July 8th, DW reporters Giulia Saudelli and Luisa von Richthofen want to get to know a special way of traveling: with an Interrail ticket through the heart of Europe.
They will visit 7 countries: Germany, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Slovenia, Italy, France and the Netherlands. Along the way, they will stop by well-known tourist hotspots but also destinations off the beaten path.
Both Giulia and Luisa look forward to meeting other international travelers. The two reporters have already lived and worked in six countries in the European Union. "As Europeans, we are so close to each other and a train trip through Europe makes you realize this first-hand," said Luisa.

European culture at its best
According to Giulia, train travel is ideal for discovering the cultural diversity that Europe has to offer: "On a train journey you travel much more slowly and can experience a country, its cities and landscapes first-hand. I am looking forward to finding out what makes each country so unique".
Our reporters want to share their experiences and insights with you as they visit festivals, museums, cafes, markets and more! On our travel website, they will regularly post pictures of the most beautiful places they have visited!
