Looking at travels back to Norway after our last gig in UK, we are amazed, again and again.
Have a look at this:
Shortest route London-Oslo: Eurostar to Brussels- 2 hrs (but not included in the interrail pass)
Brussels to Frankfurt 3 hrs
Frankfurt to Copenhagen- eh…..no.
Take late train to Hamburg. arrive at 3.30 in the night. Wait 3 hrs then take train to Niebull, NB! but not from same station in Hamburg!
In Niebull you have 9 minutes., If you dont make it, no one cares
take train to Bramming, again you have 9 minutes before train to Copenhagen leaves .
Train to Copenhagen Arrive there 12.51
Train To Gothenburg 13.32
Change to train to Halden at 17.55
Change to train from Halden to Oslo at 20.05
Starting this idea, we imagined a travel from City centre to city centre in all the glorious train lines of modern Europe. This image has been completely smashed to pieces in the process of booking this tour. You can go smoothly from big city to big city, but longer distances are not operated by night trains anymore, so you would have to book hotel every night, if you dont want to spend night after night waiting on a bench on a platform……
