Interrailing has become a phenomenon in recent years. Whether you want to go down the well-travelled routes or are on the look-out for something different, you'll be able to find the right destination for you on this list.
If you're planning to travel to Europe, it's advisable ensure that you have interrail travel insurance that will cover you in the event of an accident or emergency.
Top 10 interrail destinations
1. Budapest, Hungary
With its beautiful Buda Castle along the Danube, as well as its breath-taking Heroes' square and cultural monuments, Budapest is the best of both worlds when it comes to sight-seeing and cultural history.
2. Berlin, Germany
Berlin is home to both history and artsy districts. Whether you plan to visit iconic structures such as the Brandenburg gate or party all night, Berlin has the best of both worlds.
3. Amsterdam, The Netherlands
Home of a teeming nightlife and charming architecture, interrailers can cover the whole city in just a matter of days. The most popular way to enjoy the city is by bike, or by strolling along its many canals.
