#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.
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.

The tremendous news: the crowdfunding of #CrossBorderRail has already been successful enough, just 24 hours after starting the project, to cover the costs of 40 days of the trip (€4096 is necessary to finance the project). That means I know that […]Read More
