This pass has been replaced

In an effort to simplify the offer for travelers, and offer a more competitively priced and flexible product, Eurail has discontinued this pass. In 2019 and beyond, look to the Eurail Global Pass to be your perfect travel companion !
This pass allows train travel in 31 European countries, and is available for as few as 3 days of travel. Plus, up to two children travel free and a new senior discount has been added, making family travel more affordable.

Overview

The Eurail Select Pass including Benelux and Germany gives you extensive travel on the national rail networks of Belgium, The Netherlands, Luxembourg, and Germany, with your choice of first or second class travel for 4, 5, 6, 8 or 10 days of rail travel within a two-month period. Also offers saverpass discounts for 2 or more traveling together. You can also decide whether you’d prefer those travel days to be consecutive or non-consecutive. That’s the beauty of the Eurail Select Pass. It lets you travel in the same glorious time zone — yours.

You set the pace, whether it’s starting in the German capital of Berlin or the Belgian capital of Brussels for a heavy dose of gothic palaces. (You’ll find Belgium and Germany quite a popular pairing for sophisticated adventurers, as well as Germany and Holland.) And it would be unforgivable to overlook the rich museum scene of these art centers. There are literally hundreds of world-class museums in these cultural hubs just waiting outside your 21st century chariot. What isn’t waiting are crowded airports, lost reservations and wasted time trying to get to the center of things. You’ll also find added benefits on this pass as diverse as the countries it includes, from transportation bonuses to hotel discounts.

An itinerary based on the way you like to see things, but with the expertise to make the most of it. That’s the Eurail Select Pass from Rail Europe. In other words, it’s the perfect plan, the perfect pass, and just the perfect partner.
