    Hi Sam,

    The only feasible overnight connection from Imst Pitztal to Berlin would take about 15 hours in duration and involves changing trains twice along the way; once in Innsbruck and then once in Munich (with the segment from Munich to Berlin being on the City Night Line overnight train).

    Most trains from Imst Pitztal to Innsbruck are regional trains that don't accept reservations, so the Eurail Global Pass is all you would need to board. There are some trains from Imst Pitztal to Innsbruck that accept resevations, but they are not necessary.

    Reservations are highly recommended on trains from Innsbruck to Munich, and reservations would be required on the night train from Munich to Berlin.

    You would purchase your reservations and check schedules by clicking on 'Book your Rail Pass Reservations' on the homepage of our website, www.raileurope.com. For a trip all the way from Imst Pitztal to Berlin, you would piece together the connection by doing a separate search for each segment.

    Trains from Imst Pitztal to Innsbruck and Innsbruck to Munich can be booked within 90 days of an intended date of departure, while the night train from Munich to Berlin can sometimes be booked up to 180 days in advance of a departure. The night train can sell out very quickly, so it is recommended that you purchase your reservations as soon as possible.

    I have not heard Berlin to be a particularly unsafe city.

    If you ever wish to see what city passes may be offered for a particular city, you would click on 'Activities' from the homepage of our website and then identify the city and country where prompted. The direct link for city passes offered for Berlin is http://www.raileurope.com/en/activiti... .

    The night train from Berlin to Amsterdam does not operate as direct service on many dates throughout the Summer, due to construction on the rail lines near Amsterdam. In such an instance, you would take the night train from Berlin as far as Eindhoven, where you would switch to a train that will take you to Amsterdam. In any case, these particular night trains (be it to Eindhoven or direct to Amsterdam) are currently not able to be booked on our website. Therefore, to inquire about the reservation costs for these trains and purchase the reservations, you would call us at 1-800-622-8600. These trains can sometimes be booked up to 180 days in advance of a departure. They can sell out quickly, so it is recommended that reservations be booked as soon as possible.

    Trains from Eindhoven to Amsterdam don't accept reservations, so the Eurail Global Pass is all you would need to board if you were to take this train.

    The Munich Hbf station, Berlin Hbf station, and Amsterdam Central stations all do have some form of luggage storage. Since the storage fee is one that is assessed locally at the station, we do not have any information about how much it would cost to store luggage. Generally, these fees can range anywhere from 3 to 6 Euro per day at stations in Europe.

    For some general information on this service, you would click on the following links:

    Munich Hbf station:

    Berlin Hbf station:
    http://www.raileurope.com/europe-trav...

    Amsterdam Central station:
    http://www.raileurope.com/europe-trav...

    As the North American ticket and rail pass supplier for the various national rail networks of Europe, we only have such pages for some of the more major rail stations in Europe.

    We do not have any information regarding lockers or any form of left luggage service at the station in Krimml, though I would suspect that there would not be any lockers or left luggage service there.
