THE FACES BEHIND RAILWAYHERO

Sustainability is important to us and that’s why we believe train travel is the best way to travel for the future globetrotter. In addition, there are so many other great reasons to take a train such as enjoying a more comfortable way of travel, appreciating the scenery along the way, gaining access to countryside destinations, and hopping off the train wherever you’d like.

Christoph

FOUNDER

I am Christoph from Germany. After my first long train tour on the Trans-Siberian Railway and backpacking to several countries, I had an idea to start a website about traveling by train and here it is! Slow travel by train is my favorite way to travel the world, maybe it will be a favorite of yours too?
