Trip Style

Want to explore three European capitals from your doorstep? Our London to Berlin trip is the perfect way to launch yourself into the world of rail travel by starting in our very own capital city. Perfect for first time travellers, families or for a short break, it makes for a stress free week of exploring.

Trip Description

Kick off your travels close to home

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 Brussels at 290km/hr. You’ll be there in just over 2 hours, with time to grab a few chocolates before you continue onwards to Amsterdam. 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?

My friend and I have just returned from our interrailing trip which we organised through euroventure, and I could not recommend them enough!!!! They were able to help us plan our trip, whilst accommodating to our needs (whether that was having private hostels, allowing us to find our own accommodation in some places and book just the trains for us, find the cheapest travel routes, etc.). All of our hostels were nice and in good locations, which without them we aren't sure where we would have ended up! The book we received before our trip also ensured we knew exactly where to go to find them once getting off at the train/bus stations. The team were constantly available whilst sorting our trip, and were quick to respond to any queries or concerns that we had. They also were happy to recommend places to go whilst we were there. I would recommend using euroventure to anyone who is thinking about going interrailing. They were 100% worth it, and put me and my friend at ease throughout our travels, knowing that they had sorted everything.

I would highly recommend the Eastern European tour if you are after an experience of a lifetime!! I had the best time meeting new people and visiting some amazing places with memories that will stay with me forever. Everything ran smoothly and was very well organised, the included activities and optional activities were great with a good balance of getting your own free time too. Our trip leader David was lovely, friendly and hilarious, making everyone’s trip something they will never forget 😊 I 100% recommend Euro venture!
