Czech Republic-Germany and Germany-Poland Passes Available From April 1
UTRECHT, The Netherlands, April 2 /CNW/ - Eurail Group has introduced two
new Regional Passes that widen the options for discovering Europe.
Valid for travel in two bordering European countries, Eurail Regional
Passes were developed to offer time-starved travelers the opportunity to
explore two countries in depth. The two new combinations are Czech
Republic-Germany and Germany-Poland, bringing the total number of Eurail
Regional Passes up to 20 - and offering travelers more freedom and choice in
planning rail travel.
The Eurail Czech Republic-Germany Pass allows travelers to explore
Germany and the Czech Republic, its eastern neighbor, with just one pass. The
options in these two jewels include the vibrant capitals of Berlin and Prague,
and two great European Rivers, the romantic Rhine and the lovely Moldau. A
train ride away lie beautiful and impressive landscapes like the Black Forest
and Bohemian Woods, and pearls of Middle European architecture in the
magnificent cities of Prague, Plzen, Nuremberg, Regensburg, Magdeburg.
With this pass, travelers can enjoy breakfast in a stylish Berlin coffee
shop, have lunch on the scenic banks of the Elbe in Dresden, and a romantic
dinner under the Hradcany Castle in Prague. These are also the beer capitals
of Europe, with an immense variety from world-known brands to the hidden gems
of small-town private breweries.
Fast, efficient, high quality train service links both countries several
times a day. The EuroCity (EC) day trains, for example, run between Berlin,
Dresden and Prague at two-hour intervals and the DB Nachtzug (night train)
offers comfort and style from Munich and Frankfurt to Prague.
Poland has been moving up the radar screens of savvy travelers lately,
and the new Eurail Germany-Poland Pass makes it easier than ever to get around
this fascinating country. The exciting capitals of Berlin and Warsaw are under
six hours apart by train. Beautiful landscapes like the Rhine valley in
Germany and the Baltic seashores of Poland are much more impressive from the
window of a train than a plane. Enchanting, historic city centres of Krakow,
Wroclaw and Gorlitz were made for strolling, and off the beaten path, the
unequalled and genuine nature of Rugen Island in Germany and the Masuren lake
district of Poland beckon more adventuresome travelers.
Superior quality day and night trains link both countries several times a
day. EC day trains run between Berlin, Poznan and Warsaw
(Berlin-Warszawa-Express) and night trains connect Frankfurt to Warsaw and
Berlin to Krakow.
The EURAIL Group comprises 27 railways and shipping lines, as well as
several bonus partners. For more information about Eurail and to purchase, go
