    Changed reply in topic of Eurail Global Pass for Germany and Belgium (Munich, Rothenberg ob der Tauber, Cologne, Brussels, Leuven, Bruges) by Jeff to Hi Angela,<br /><br />For the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/pass/eurail-global-pass-5880" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Eurail Global Pass</a> itself, you would click here: <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/pass/eurail-global-pass-5880" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/pass/eurail-global-pass-5880">https://www.raileurope.com/pass/eurail-global-pass-5880</a>.<br /><br />Many of your trains actually will not take reservations, so the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/pass/eurail-global-pass-5880" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/pass/eurail-global-pass-5880">Eurail Global Pass</a> is all you would need to board. I'll run through each of your trips.<br /><br /><b><u>Munich to Rothenburg ob der Tauber with a Eurail Global Pass</u></b><br /><br />The fastest connections from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/munich" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Munich</a> to Rothenburg ob der Tauber take about 2.5 hours in duration and involve 3 train changes along the way; once in Nuremberg, once in Ansbach, and then once in Steinach.<br /><br />Trains from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/munich" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Munich</a> to Nuremberg are high-speed <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/ice-7534" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/train/ice-7534">ICE</a> (<a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/ice-7534" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">InterCity Express</a>) trains. On <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/ice-7534" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">ICE</a> trains, it is generally the case that reservations are recommended, but it is probably not really necessary for the ones just from Munich to Nuremberg. If you do want reservations for this leg, you would purchase them by searching Munich to Nuremberg on our homepage (<a href="http://www.raileurope.com" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">www.raileurope.com</a>), checking the box that says ‘I have a rail pass’, and then indicating the type of rail pass with which you'll be traveling (i.e. a ‘Eurail Global Pass’).<br /><br />For the remaining part of the connection (Nuremberg to Ansbach, Ansbach to Steinach, and Steinach to Rothenberg ob der Tauber), the trains do not need or even accept reservations, so the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/pass/eurail-global-pass-5880" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Eurail Global Pass</a> is all you would need to board. For planning purposes, you can still use the route search feature on our homepage just to view schedules for these trains. When searching schedules to Rothenburg ob der Tauber, you would type 'Rothenberg O D Taube' in the field for the arrival city. Also, when you're just trying to access schedules for non-reservable trains, you would leave the 'I have a rail pass' button unchecked. To view the schedules, you would have to do one search for the full connection from 'Nuremberg' to 'Rothenberg O D Taube'.<br /><br /><b><u>Rothenburg ob der Tauber to Cologne with a Eurail Global Pass</u></b><br /><br />The fastest connections from Rothenburg ob der Tauber to Cologne take just over 4 hours in duration and involve 2 train changes along the way; once in Steinach and then once in Wurzburg.<br /><br />Trains from Rothenburg ob der Tauber to Steinach and Steinach to Wurzburg are regional trains, which do not accept reservations. Therefore, the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/pass/eurail-global-pass-5880" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Eurail Global Pass</a> is all you would need to board for these segments. For planning purposes, you can again use the route search feature on our homepage just to view schedules for these non-reservable segments. Once again, Rothenberg ob der Tauber would need to be entered as 'Rothenberg O D Taube'. For these schedules to display, you would need to leave the 'I have a rail pass' unchecked and you would do one search from 'Rothenberg O D Taube' to 'Wurzburg'.<br /><br />From Wurzburg to Cologne, you would take an <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/ice-7534" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">ICE</a> (<a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/ice-7534" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">InterCity Express</a>) train on which reservations are highly recommended. To purchase the reservations, you would search do a search from Wurzburg to Cologne on our homepage, check the box that says ‘I have a rail pass’, and then indicate the type of rail pass with which you'll be traveling (i.e. a ‘Eurail Global Pass’).<br /><br /><b><u>Cologne to Brussels with a Eurail Global Pass</u></b><br /><br />From Cologne to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/brussels" rel="nofollow">Brussels</a>, you would take a high-speed <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/thalys-7536" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/train/thalys-7536">Thalys</a> trains. These trains do require reservations as a supplement to a rail pass. For travel with a rail pass, you would purchase reservations from Cologne to Brussels by searching the route on our homepage, checking the box that says ‘I have a rail pass’, and then indicating the type of rail pass with which you'll be traveling (i.e. a ‘Eurail Global Pass’).<br /><br /><b><u>Leuven to Brussels with a Eurail Global Pass</u></b><br /><br />Between Leuven and Brussels, you would take a direct IC train. IC trains in Belgium do not accept reservations, so the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/pass/eurail-global-pass-5880" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/pass/eurail-global-pass-5880">Eurail Global Pass</a> is all you would need to board. You can use the route search feature on our homepage just to view schedules for these trains. To access these schedules, you would just have to leave the 'I have a rail pass' button unchecked.<br /><br /><b><u>Leuven to Bruges with a Eurail Global Pass</u></b><br /><br />There are also direct IC trains between Leuven and Bruges. Since these don't take reservations, the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/pass/eurail-global-pass-5880" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link https//wwwraileuropecom/pass/eurail-global-pass-5880">Eurail Global Pass</a> is once again all you would need to board. Schedules for the trains between Leuven and Bruges are not able to be viewed on our website. These trains depart twice every hour throughout the day, and the ride takes about 1.5 hours..

    Changed reply in topic of Eurail Global Pass for Germany and Belgium (Munich, Rothenberg ob der Tauber, Cologne, Brussels, Leuven, Bruges) by Jeff to Generally, rail passes do not cover metro/public transit systems within European cities, although there are some exceptions. For instance, the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/pass/eurail-global-pass-5880" rel="nofollow">Eurail Global Pass</a> does cover the S-Bahn commuter trains in German cities (including <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/munich" rel="nofollow">Munich</a>), but not the U-Bahn trains in German cities.

    Changed reply in topic of Public transportation London, Belgium & Amsterdam July 1-8 by Jeff to Hi Kimberley,<br /><br />The best option to purchase depends on the specifics of the itinerary itself. Rail passes are for travel between different cities. Generally, rail passes do not cover metro/public transit systems within European cities. If you're staying just outside of <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/london" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/city/london">London</a> and only traveling around the immediate vicinity, then it likely would not be worth it to purchase a rail pass.

    Changed reply in topic of Confused about choosing which train ticket and seating is best for our trip. by Jeff to Hi Kim,<br /><br />What to purchase for your travels would depend on the specifics of the itinerary itself and various other factors. It is likely that you'd want to purchase a BritRail Pass, but the specific version of the pass would need to be determined by other factors. Therefore, if you’d like assistance determining the best option for an itinerary such as this, you would send an email to <a href="mailto:customercare@raileurope.com" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">customercare@raileurope.com</a>.<br /><br />In the meantime, you can check schedules by entering a route under 'Find Train Tickets' on our homepage, <a href="http://www.raileurope.com" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link http//wwwraileuropecom">www.raileurope.com</a>.<br /><br />To get to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/dublin" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Dublin</a>, you would take the ferry from Holyhead. The rail pass would not cover this ferry, so you would have to purchase tickets for it directly through the ferry company. The companies operating ferries on this route are 'Stena Line' and 'Irish Ferries'..

The <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/pass/swiss-pass-5934" rel="nofollow">Swiss Travel Pass</a> also generally provides for greater discounts on popular mountain railways (including cable cars/gondolas/funiculars), but the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/pass/eurail-global-pass-5880" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/pass/eurail-global-pass-5880">Eurail Global Pass</a> does still provide for discounts. It just depends on the specific mountain excursion.
