Winter & Spring

Discover holiday magic on a winter or spring escape, and experience the world during some of the most beautiful seasons of the year. As snowflakes drop on rugged mountain peaks and glistening rivers freeze over into cool ice, many countries in Europe turn into winter wonderlands. Our winter rail journeys take you to some of the most picturesque areas in Europe, from the mountains and glaciers of Switzerland to the rivers and castles of Germany. With pure white snow crunching underfoot and a crisp and still atmosphere, it's hard not to become enchanted during winter.

As winter turns to spring, the landscapes of Europe awaken with pretty flowers, lush valleys and a new lease of life. Our spring rail journeys take you to the heart of some beautiful destinations as well as offering the chance to indulge in some unique cultural celebrations, like immersing yourself in world of colourful flora at Keukenhof Gardens. Browse our selection of winter and spring rail journeys.

“Norwich is a lovely City to spend Christmas,hotel was pleasant although not in the most salubrious area unless your a football fan.All the staff were very helpful and friendly, food was very good with plenty of choice,even for a vegetarian !! Ken our holiday guide was excellent doing his best to please quite a large party. I wouldn't consider another rail discoveries holiday at that time of year due to the over crowding ( not your fault) of the trains. Mary Baynes

“The locations were amazing but the admin around the tickets each time meant that we had to queue for each local train that we took. We had Deutche Bahn tickets which did not work at the turnstiles. The hotel was fine and the food good.

“The trip to Delft was so disappointing. Not enough time to see this town. The walk from the coach park took such a chunk of our visiting time. Although the coach was not allowed ( seemingly only if you held a German international driving plate ). Both my wife and I were very greatly disappointed with the hotel room. No air conditioning. British station on TV not accessible. A bathroom that did not accommodate the size of an adult. Neither of us are grossly overweight but found using the bathroom extremely depressing inconvenient and bordering on claustrophobic. The toppers on our beds kept moving. To get into and out of one of our beds it was necessary to shuffle sideways. Noise not only of local building works but also in the hotel definitely interrupted my wife's sleep. Insufficient storage space. 5 coat hangers and only open shelving - no drawers. For one night ok but not for 4 nights for two people. No safe in our room as we had believed - only one in reception. Julie,our tour guide was excellent.
