Hello Kathy,

Thanks for the question.

For your travel in Germany and Netherland, you can book the Eurail Benelux-Germany Pass which will be the best option. The Eurail Benelux-Germany Pass would give you unlimited travel on all regional and national train carriers in Germany and Benelux (which stands for Belgium, The Netherlands and Luxembourg). May we inform you that Belgium, The Netherlands and Luxembourg is considered as one country when buying a Eurail pass.

Keep in mind that seat reservations would be mandatory for all High-Speed, Night, Scenic and Border Crossing trains. But, you can avail pass holder/discounted fares for these journeys with the pass.

To purchase the Eurail Benelux-Germany Select Pass click “Here”.

In order to book seat reservations, please visit our website.

The pass seats can be reserved by clicking on “Seat Reservations” & feed in the Departure city and the Arrival city along with the travel date and preferred time & the number of passengers (Senior, adults, youth and children), and then click on “search tickets”. Once you do so, you would find the schedules along with the fares.

Please click on the “Fare Details” tab to view details regarding the type of fare, type of seat, whether a reservation is included or not and the After Sales Policy.

Hope this helps!!!

Best Regards,

I found that some of the city night trains only provide reservation for the first class.

Can I make reservation for 1st class sleeper with a second class rail pass?

Thank you.
