Do you dislike vacations that have you rushing through airports catching connecting flights? Have you been searching for a more laidback transportation vibe for your family vacations? Well, I think I have discovered a solution for you. Train travel is becoming more popular, especially over in Europe. When you travel by train, you aren’t confined to a single seat and row. Your family can get up and move around. Plus, trains are roomier than airplanes. So, when you are sitting, you aren’t glued to the person next to you. If you are vying for a new way to travel, I recommend one of the best family train trips in Europe.
The Deutsche Bahn trains in Germany travel all over the country. However, many travelers like yourself choose to take the train down to Alpine Lake Constance. That lake borders Germany, as well as Switzerland and Austria. Imagine crossing three countries off your must-see list during one family vacation!
While on this family train trip, your kids can spend time in a designated space with the other youngsters that are traveling. This space has areas for playing games, listening to stories, or just talking with others. There is also an onboard entertainment program for all kids. It is free and you don’t need to reserve a spot in advance.
As an adult, you will love dining in the restaurant, while the kids are having a good time.
Traveling through Austria can be an adventure of a lifetime when you choose to ride on the OBB. The carriages of the red Railjet trains are filled with activities for any age. The kids will love spending their travel time in carriages 21 and 31. It is in those two areas where board games and movies keep the kids entertained.
In the family coaches, you can spread out your belongings and still have room to tuck the strollers away. And the family-friendly restrooms are a plus.
The best part about traveling with kids on the OBB is Timi Taurus. He is the train’s mascot and kids love spending time with him.
Exploring the Swiss Alps is simple when your family train trip includes a ride on the Swiss Federal Railways. SBB, as the railway is affectionately called, is known for its double decker trains. The upper deck is known as the family zone. The Ticki Park up there is a massive playground no kid will be able to resist.
The lower zone is not as fascinating. But it does offer plenty of space for storing luggage and strollers. And it offers a quiet space to those who need a break from all the playground noise.
The Dolomites have always been a difficult destination for many families to get to for vacations. However, the high-speed train, Italo, now travels there. This is now becoming one of the most popular family train trips in Europe.
