Train Holidays: The Harz Mountains in the Winter and Spring
If you’re looking for a flight free Europe trip this winter or spring, then Great Rail Journeys is a company that has wonderfully luxurious and very interesting train holidays.
As an example, I would recommend a visit by rail to the stunning Harz Mountains. This is highest mountain range in northern Germany, and a beautiful part of Europe with rivers, beautiful lakes, spruce, beech, and mixed woodland, and plenty of crisp white snow.
Great Rail Journeys have been organizing train holidays for 30 years, and they are true experts at what they do. So what can you expect from a company like them?
Here is a brief description of this fabulous 7-day tour:
The trip starts in London. You will travel to Brussels on the Eurostar, and then on to Cologne where you will stay over night.
You will then travel to Hanover, where you will get your first glimpse of the breathtaking mountains, and be taken to Wernigerode, which will be where you are based for 5 days of your holiday in Germany. This is a beautiful medieval town. You will have plenty of time to visit this charming town, and there is an organized trip to the medieval fortress, Wernigerode Castle.
- You will ride on beautiful vintage steam trains to the charming medieval town of Goslar, which is right at the base of the great Harz Mountains.
