Europe by Rail: The Definitive Guide – 15th Edition

By Nicky Gardner and Susanne Kries

ON LONG dark winter evenings, any book that can ‘lift you out of your armchair’ with dreams of foreign adventures is worth its weight in gold.

Europe by Rail is exactly that sort of book; designed to inspire exploration of mainland Europe by train via a series of 50 carefully considered routes.

This fully revised and updated 15th edition continues the tried-and-trusted guidebook format, combining accurate, helpful advice and information that will be useful to novice and experienced travellers alike, but as well as the practical elements, it’s also a great read, compiled by two knowledgeable authors who travel extensively across the continent and have a real passion for railways.
