Travelling by Train in Germany- What not to miss

Traveling by train is not only environmentally friendly, but you can also enjoy special views of the city and countryside along the way. Here you will find a selection of the most beautiful routes in Germany. These trains are also the perfect spot for you to enjoy the 20Bet Casino with an amazing view. 

You can travel the whole country by train in an environmentally friendly way. Another advantage of rail travel is that you can sit back, relax and spend the time traveling as you wish. Many routes invite you to simply look out of the window and enjoy the view of places and landscapes worth seeing. We present some of the most beautiful routes in Germany. 

WHAT ARE THE MOST BEAUTIFUL ROUTES

The Ravenna Gorge in the Höllental valley is also worth a hike. Of course, everyone has to decide for themselves. A selection to inspire you: 

1. Höllentalbahn in the Black Forest: Germany’s steepest main line. 76 kilometers long, 600 meters high. On this route, the train travels through 15 tunnels and over five viaducts with an impressive view. The connection: Freiburg – Donaueschingen. You can change to the Dreiseenbahn at Titisee station. Recommended stops: Hirschsprung, Hinterzarten, Neustadt, Rötenbach and Löffingen. 

2. Koblenz – Trier: A route of 112 kilometers. It runs through picturesque landscapes, historic tunnels and the longest hillside viaduct on a railroad line. The journey only takes two hours, but stops for a glass of wine are possible everywhere. The route meanders along vineyards and the Moselle. 

3. Basel – Ulm: A long route of almost 300 kilometers with a change of trains in Friedrichshafen. The highlights of the route are the wild waterfalls near Schaffhausen as well as Lake Constance and Upper Swabia.

Please note: Although Basel is located in Switzerland, the Badischer Bahnhof station on Swiss soil (Basel Bad) still belongs to Deutsche Bahn. From there you can take the S6 to Basel SBB. You can travel the entire route with the Deutschlandticket.

4. Lake Constance: route from Lindau-Reutin to Lindau-Insel. The journey leads partly through mountainous countryside – but once you reach the island, you can also enjoy views of Lake Constance to the left and right. 

5. railroad line Bad Reichenhall – Berchtesgaden: Although the route is short at twenty kilometers, it offers an impressive Alpine panorama. And Berchtesgaden is only a stone’s throw away from Königssee. 

6. Freilassing – Berchtesgaden: Right through the middle of a national park or with the Mittenwaldbahn through the Karwendel mountains. The Munich – Füssen route is also recommended. 

7. Wittenberg to Stralsund: the longest route without changing trains. In over 300 kilometers and 4.5 hours, the train reaches the coastal town of Stralsund, from where it is not far to the island of Rügen.

8. Dresden – Bad Schandau: A journey that only takes 45 minutes, but runs along one of the most beautiful routes in Germany. The tracks run along the Elbe and there are playful villages on both banks. The famous Elbe Sandstone Mountains of Saxon Switzerland provide more drama. 

9 North Sea and Baltic Sea: If the starting point is Hamburg, both seas can be reached by train almost every hour. With the Syltexpress from Altona to Westerland, travelers can cross the 15-kilometer-long and well-known Hindenburgdamm on Sylt. 

10. Rendsburg High Bridge: Anyone traveling by train towards Denmark should not ignore the Rendsburg Bridge. It is a historic landmark and crosses the Kiel Canal in the middle of Schleswig-Holstein at a height of almost 70 meters. The trains wind their way up a 4.5-kilometre-long loop to negotiate the ascent.
