The challenge with guidebooks nowadays is to find a niche that isn’t covered by the internet. It is no longer necessary to list dozens of places to stay and eat at every place you might visit, nor to pack the pages with stuff easily found online such as museum opening times and city maps. Instead we have a succinct volume that is packed with honest and well-informed advice – and so pleasantly written and logically laid out that you could read it cover to cover even if you don’t leave your armchair or venture no further than your daily commute between East Croydon and Victoria.
We are treated to fifty routes through European countries, some within the bounds of a single country, others crossing international borders, and using the index map inside the front and back covers you could soon amalgamate routes and design your own trans-Europe adventure, from London to Zakopane, for instance, or from Warsaw to Porto. Each has a simple map, journey times and cross-references to the European Rail Timetable. Thus on a journey from Hamburg to Stockholm, you are given a breakdown of the journey times and frequencies of each stage, and pointed to the possibility of getting a direct train all the way. But you probably won’t want to rush it, and the authors have picked out some recommended stopovers such as Lübeck, where they’ve picked out three places to stay and summed up what’s special about the place without stifling the style with a surfeit of unnecessary info for its own sake.Read more ›
