South East Europe 2024 - help crowdfund this project!

Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Albania, Montenegro, North Macedonia and Kosovo.
The borders between them, and their borders with the EU.
To be investigated in May 2024.

#CrossBorderRail Autumn 2023

At least 20 more #CrossBorderRail lines. 99 trains. More than 10 events. A speech on the Kulturzug to Wrocław, and a ferry and train trip to Ireland. The Autumn 2023 project has now concluded.

#CrossBorderRail 2023 - all of Germany's rail borders - has now concluded

2nd-15th May 2023 - the first month of the new Deutschlandticket - I travelled to all of Germany's borders to its neighbouring countries, with a focus on the places I did not visit in 2022. In total I explored more than 30 more cross border railway lines.

Top 20 projects - #CrossBorderRail 2022 conclusions

After more than 30000km on trains, and 95 borders crossed, the first conclusions of the #CrossBorderRail project were presented 29th August 2022 in Berlin - 20 places where change is needed and could be implemented fast!

#CrossBorderRail 13 June - 1 August 2022

Anyone who has ever tried to cross borders within the EU by train has seen the problem: international trains (if they even run!) are often less regular, have worse timetables, and are harder to book than trains in one country. I want to highlight these issues, and show ways to solve them in this project.
