Exploring Europe: Train Travel Emerges as a Popular Choice for Young Indians


A growing number of Indians have been travelling to Europe to explore the continent by train.

Travelers from now comprise the second-largest market for Rail Europe for the first time in 90 years. DW asked some of them to share their experiences. “Europe has been so popularized by pop so it was definitely on my bucket list to do a Europe trip,” 30-year-old Kritika Goel told DW. The social media content creator from Vellore, a city in southern India's Tamil Nadu state, said that she has always been fascinated by European history, culture and its stunning landscapes.

So much so, that the 30-year-old finds herself returning to explore the continent every three or four months. And Goel is not the only Indian who has discovered the joys of exploring Europe across its railways. India is now the second-largest market for Rail Europe, a company that makes European train travel more accessible to travelers, after the United States — outpacing both China and Japan. The company provides tickets for some 200 rail operators across Europe.
