Flying is so yesterday. If you want to avoid expensive taxis and getting perved on by the new airport securtiy checks, then trains are the only way to get around. Whether you’re looking to large it in Latvia or get kinky in Helsinki, we bring you the the weird and wonderful of European Traincations…
This week we take you on Traincation all the way to Austria to dine in the clouds…
What’s all the fuss?
We know that you’re all big kids at heart. So why not head over to Vienna to jump on a giant Ferris wheel for amazing views of the city and a romantic meal at the same time? At its highest point, the Giant Ferris Wheel is 65 meters and is visited by thousands of people each year. Dine on delicious food while relaxing in a slowly moving dining carriage (pictured). The view of Vienna is simply breathtaking, and this is one experience you will not forget in a hurry.
Hop on the Eurostar from London to Brussels in under 2 hours. Next the high-speed Thalys train will take you to Cologne, so settle down in the comfy seats with a glass of wine. At Cologne allow yourself to be rocked to sleep on the overnight Austrian EuroNight train. Keep your eyes open for the stunning night time view of the Rhine Valley (pictured).
