Want to explore three amazing European capitals in just 1 week? Our London to Berlin trip is the perfect way to launch yourself into the world of interrailing. Perfect for first time travellers, families or for a short break, it makes for a stress-free week of exploring.
Start your 1 week rail trip in the UK’s buzzing capital, London. Whether you live in Britain already, or want to experience the UK for the first time as part of your travels, you’d be a fool to overlook the glorious sights of our biggest and most famous city. A metropolis of almost 8 million people, London is the beating heart of the UK, home to the nation’s finest museums, theatres, food and sightseeing. Start your trip in style by spending a couple of nights, before heading over to the continent via Eurostar – the most relaxing and comfortable way to cross the channel!
Cross the sea and zoom towards Amsterdam at 290km/hr! The capital of the Netherlands is home to a liberal atmosphere, friendly people, world class cultural heritage and incredible architecture. Hire a bike to cruise round amazing museums (our favourite is the Van Gough Museum), trendy bars, the famous coffee-shops and the (in)famous Red Light District. Amsterdam is unique and endlessly fascinating – all the more reason to come back again and again.
Finally, finish your trip in Berlin – the alternative, cool kid of Europe. Check out the street food, the history, the East Side Art Gallery, the craft beer and the clubs. Berlin’s underground scene is so extensive that, ironically, it can be seen everywhere. In Berlin you’ll find a truly modern city with a fascinating past. What better place to finish your Euroventure on a high?
London is home to the UK’s biggest and best known museums, sights and attractions – not to mention an awesome restaurant and bar scene. Even if you’ve lived in the UK your whole life, there’s always more to explore; London is ever changing and growing. You’ll never run out of things to do in this Metropolitan melting pot.
Check out the country’s top museums, all of which are free!

Berlin is the alternative, cool kid of Europe and a pro at being edgy. It’s how people dress, their liberal attitudes, the graffiti, the skaters and BMX-ers, the art, the clubs and the food. Berlin is also crammed full of fascinating WWII history around every corner so there really is something for everyone.
