After much scribbling on maps, I think me and my partner have sort of figured out our Interrail itinerary, so a) I am vibrating with excitement at the thought of All The Trains and b) if anybody knows cool things to do in and around Rotterdam/Cologne/Vienna/Ljubljana/Zürich/Paris this autumn I’m all ears
@alex ooooh! see if you can catch a boat/ferry in Rotterdam. I never did, but you see em zipping around the place and it's gotta be a good way to see a place.
@ash Yes! I’ll keep an eye out, cheers! Right now my only real plan is aiming to eat my own weight in croissants in Paris so the other parts need some firming up 😅
@alex In R'dam, I can def recommend the Euromast. The view is fantastic.
I also recommend taking a walk along the Nieuwe Maas, where you can see a bunch of funny-looking buildings, really experience the architectural MESS that is Roterdam. De Markthal is also a cool place to check out.
If you want to see some cool streets, the Coolsingel recently got a major overhaul to make it more walkable, and the entire path in front of Centraal Station towards Eendrachtsplein is very nice to walk through.
@amara Wow, the Markthal looks like something from the demoscene rather than a real building – I love it! Dank je wel!
