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.
  •  You will ride the famous Brocken railway, which will take you on a breathtaking trip to the top of the highest peak in the Harz Mountain.
  •  You will also visit Quedlinburg, which is one of Europe’s best-preserved medieval towns and a world heritage site.
  •  You will ride on the Selke Valley Railway, which will take you high into the mountains.

This amazing trip will be a first class, luxurious, experience. Great Rail Journeys offer a service that is second to none. You will have a professional tour manager who will have a great deal of experience and know the places you will be visiting very well indeed.
