TRAVEL with pat and lew

best site for European train schedules

Posted by Lew Weinstein on February 22, 2007

 

We use the train extensively. In fact, we selected our Collioure apartment in part because it was close to a train station. But I spent many hours trying to find and interpret schedules, both the little printed schedules available in the stations, and several very poor web sites, before I found the Route Planner at

This site offers user-friendly entry of all European stations, along with desired travel date and time of day, and then provides all of the resulting schedules, with intermediate stops and layover times (try Paris to Moscow – 39 hours with 7 changes, but you can get there).

The only complication is that there may be several stations at major locations, so you have to choose the one you want to get the schedule.
