Thank you!

I think it might be around 2,000 pictures. So I think I could almost call the thread a little portrait of Europe.

Well, I cleared my camera┤s memory card after every tour ;-)
Yes, I travelled by train with an Interrail ticket which is not only much cheaper than travelling by car (for around 500€ you can use almost every train in Europe a whole month) but also much more interesting (And, at least in countries with modern highspeed connections like France, Germany and Spain also much faster).
I think I┤ll make a second Interrail travel in summer - Eastern Germany, Poland, Slovakia, Ukraine and Romania this time.

Wow! I didn't expect to see Monnem (Mannheim) in this thread!
I like! Even Mannheim looks cool when the sun is shining!

I can only agree with Dr Seltsam, Mannheim doesn't look that bad at all, in your photos.
In Eastern Europe, it might be cheaper not to use an Interrail, as domestic fares are so cheap. Also in other countries, Interrail might not be the best option, especially if supplements and reservations take a lot of money (in Spain and Italy, for instance, Interrail gives you a very limited discount due to the high supplements you have to pay for most long-distance trains, and you even loose the advantage of a pass, as you still have to make reservations for them). A good overview is given on the website seat61.com.

That┤s true, but I will start the journey with a stay of 2 weeks in Berlin and make some excursions in eastern and northern Germany from there - and normal highspeed tickets are so insanely expensive in Germany that I think an Interrail ticket might be the best option.

Today - back to southern Europe:

Narbonne+Cerbere, France

On my way to Barcelona, I made a stop in Narbonne, a city of 50,000 in the region Roussillon-Languedoc in order to visit the unfinished 13th century cathedral St.Just which would have been one of the largest buildings of medieval Europe if it had been finished.

More of Narbonne:































And as an extra - some pics of Cerbere, the last French village before entering the Spanish border where I had to change my train on my way to Barcelona. As I had three hours, I made a walk through the magnificent landscape around cape Cerbere:

One of the best threads ever. You really get an idea of what the cities look like by looking at the pictures. I hope there will be much more

Thanks for the comments!

Aachen, Germany

Aachen is situated in the federal state of North Rhine-Westphalia near the Belgian and Dutch border and has a population of 260,000. As the former capital of the empire of Charles the Great and with one of the oldest cathedrals of Europe, the city is of very high historic importance.





















The city hall, core 9th century, modified in 14th and 17th centuries:

Well, as a photobucket-newbie, I didn┤t know about this limitation and hope that the pics will be available again next month...

Nantes, France

Nantes is the capital of the northwestern French region Pays de la Loire and the country┤s 6th largest city with a population of 283,000 in the city and around 500,000 with suburbs. Nantes is not a spectacular beauty, but it has a very nice and well preserved city center and with the cathedral and the castle two masterpieces of late gothic architecture of the 15th century (Though the eastern parts of the cathedral were added in 19th century). As I took the pictures on a sunday morning, there are not many people in the streets.

Bern, Switzerland

Bern is the tiny, but very beautiful capital of Switzerland and with a population of 132,000 the country┤s 4th largest city. Unfortunately, I couldn┤t take as much pictures of Bern as I would have liked to as my camera┤s batteries went out of energy. So there are only a few pictures of the surrounding of the central station, a few of the magnificent old town and none of the cathedral.
