I’m going away to Europe in June for 16 days with this rough itinerary:
Amsterdam: 3 days
Dusseldorf: 1 night
Rhine Valley (Bonn – Mainz) via ferry: 2 days
Stuttgart: 1 days
Munich: 3 days
Prague: 3 days
Budapest: 3 days
What would be the best railpass to use? I’ve done some research and I think getting the regional Germany-Czech pass would probably be the most practical. Other than this pass, the only other train tickets would be from Amsterdam- Dusseldorf and from Prague-Budapest.
More importantly, how many days should I get the railpass for? In Germany, I will likely be travelling every day (either by rail or local transportation) so I was thinking of a 6 or 8 day pass. The 8 day Germany-Czech pass is already$369US, should I just shell out another $100US and get the 15 day global pass?
Also from what I gathered from the Eurail site the rail passes also cover S-bahn and the Rhine ferry? Do these benefits only last the # of days your pass is valid for? For example, if I get a Germany regional pass for 6 days in 2 months, is local transportation free only during those 6 days? Or will i still be able to use local transportation if I haven’t used the rail that day?
Thanks in advance for the help!
Amsterdam, Bonn, Mainz, Stuttgart, Munich, Prague, Budapest
