Euro rail time tables

Where do you get eurorail time tables? It seems like if you plan it right you can get off at one train station snoop around for a few hours and catch the next train. Good idea? Reservations take the fun out of it.

    Hi Frank,

    For a detailed listing of train schedules, you can purchase a 'European Rail Timetable' from The European Rail Timetable books are issued monthly.

    A rail pass covers the ticket costs on trains between different cities in the country or countries included on a pass. When applicable, reservations are a supplementary cost to a rail pass. Reservations are required on most high-speed trains, many international routes, and all overnight trains. In Western Europe, most major cities are connected almost exclusively by high-speed trains. Therefore, it is likely that reservations would be required for many trips there.

    It is also the case that reservable trains can sell out, especially during the busy spring and summer travel seasons. Therefore, it is recommended that any reservations be purchased in advance, before even departing for Europe.

    For travel with a rail pass, you would purchase reservations by entering a route on our homepage ( and indicating the type of rail pass you'll be traveling with.

    Most trains in Europe can only be booked once within 60 to 90 days of an intended departure date.
