What is the most beautiful European Railway route?
Europe is full of panoramic railway routes, which one do you know?
Since I was a teenager, I've always fancied to travel. A very interesting way to have a trip across Europe in my opinion is with an Interrail ticket. If you don't know what I'm talking about, basically is an unique pass that allows you to travel in Europe taking as many trains as you want. There are different tickets options, to suit every traveler needs.
By now, I'm a grown up adult, but I still fancy this idea of travel, for example I would love to take a 3 months pass and then just going with my backpack and stopping here and there, possibly reaching northern Europe, meeting some friends along the way and seeing beautiful scenarios. Travelling by train is a fascinating way to discover places, more relaxing than driving in the long distance and has a sort of romantic vibe, even if nowadays is very far from the idea that old movies gave us about train trips. Still, it has a weird appeal on me. Seeing landscapes passing by and changing form from behind the window, accompanied by the rattling and buzzing sound of the train, it's just great in my book. Europe is full of great panoramic railways, running along coasts and fjords or riding through mountains and glaciers, crossing forests and reaching small and big beautiful places.
So far adult life and the current world situation makes my plan pretty much impossible, but maybe as a way to exorcise this Covid stress and the bad feeling of feeling my personal freedom to move limited, I'm starting to look around for the best panoramic routes in Europe. So far I've found ten or so railway routes, mostly on Norway, Switzerland and Germany. I'm keeping searching just for the fun of research and of planning impossible plans, this take us to the point of this post:
