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?

The team at Euroventure was outstanding! Not only were they knowledgeable and helpful, but they were always quick to respond, very accommodating, and made every part of our trip personal and meaningful. Highly recommend Euroventure and would definitely work with them again.

I have just returned from my 1 week interrailing trip! Me and my boyfriend went on the “Iron curtain” package and it was amazing. Euroventure organised everything and made it so easy. I would highly recommend anyone that wants to see more of Europe to go with this company.

My sisters and I had the best trip, we did a variation to the 4 week eastern traveller route and Euroventure were so helpful in making the trip suit our needs. Each hostel was great and in a good location. The info pack was such a great help and an amazing keepsake. The fact all of our travel was booked and set out meant we could spend all our efforts on experiencing everything! We truly had the best time and would 100% recommend to anyone. We’re already looking for our next trip! Thanks again for all your help - Alice, Kailey and Harriet :)
