Our top tips for your train hopping

Pack light – your backpack should preferably not weigh more than seven kilos. Pack smart and with a small toothpaste tube. You don’t have to leave your backpack for storage at short stops.

Don't plan too much – dare not to worry about detailed planning! The best thing about train hopping is the flexibility. Look for an approximate route, but don't pre-book everything. Then you won’t get stressed.

Choose the right accommodation – dare to book accommodation while travelling. Stay in hostels if you are travelling alone because there it is easy to meet new people. If you are travelling in a group, you can book via Airbnb or hotel booking websites. The best accommodation is of course the night trains!
