Help crowd-fund #CrossBorderRail 2023 - all of Germany's rail borders

2nd-15th May 2023 - the first month of the new Deutschlandticket - I will travel 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 will explore 30 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.
