The good news about European train schedules is that they are readily available. Most are very easy to read and are traveler-friendly. You will also notice that trains are running all the time throughout Europe. In most instances, trains run about 15 to 20 minutes apart. Depending on where you are going and what time you are traveling, trains may run faster or slower.

Some people will want a very planned out schedule. They will want to know where they are going, which days and which times. If you know these facts and have no intention of having them change, you can go ahead and book ahead of time. Be careful, though, because many of the reservations are non-transferable and non-refundable.

If you are making your trip so that you have some degree of flexibility, go ahead and wait until you are in Europe to make your reservations. You could easily find that, before you left, you intended to go from Rome to Florence, but now you want to head into Austria. If you had your tickets from earlier, you would have lost money.

Finding European Train Schedules

Obviously, you can stop in at any train station and find schedules. You can also get books of schedules for around Europe. This will help you plan your vacation as well as make spontaneity a possibility. I suggest getting a pass for your trip. This will keep you from having to stand in lines all the time. It will also save you a great deal of money and time. Use that extra money for lodging, sightseeing and souvenirs.
