My company is sending me to work and live in Nuremberg, Germany for three months starting in early September. I’ve been there once already and had a great time, but with three whole months I want to do a lot of travelling on the weekends; Berlin, Vienna, Paris, places like that.
Is a Eurail pass worth the time (and the money) for jaunts like this? It seems like a night train to Paris would be a good option (leave Friday evening, have all day Saturday and half of Sunday in the City of Lights, come back Sunday evening.) But I’d like to get to London, too, and I even have some friends in Dublin that I might like to visit, and I don’t want to spend a whole weekend in a train.
So, Euro-dopers, is a Eurail pass the best way to explore north-central Europe on the weekends?
And yes, I know I’m extremely lucky to get the chance to do this.
