The saying is as old as the hills. Why not see the hills where it just may have originated? The German Rail Pass from Rail Europe gives you unlimited train travel from four to ten days. Plenty of time to frolic around the many rooms of the Schloss Neuschwanstein near Fussen, or marvel at Wartburg Castle built in 1067 AD.

And what would coming home to the castle every night be without a cold beer waiting? Sample the finest of the local breweries in Germany without having to worry about airports or driving. Perhaps most of all, the history of Germany demands to be shared.

Rail Europe can help you plan a thoughtful itinerary that lets you travel through the footsteps of times past. And don’t forget the Black Forest and Rhine Valley. There may be a lot to see when you travel n Germany, but there’s really only one way to efficiently see it all. Rail Europe.
