The Hoff’s Favorite Train Travel Itineraries
Hasselhoff explained that he fell in love with train travel thanks to his wife, Hayley Roberts, who doesn’t like to fly. “We ended up becoming train travel people,” he said. “And it’s amazing.”
David Hasselhoff has been traveling Europe by train for many years now, and he has some favorite routes and destinations he would love to share with the winner of the Chief Conductor Contest. Here are some of his top picks:
- London to Paris: Hasselhoff loves this route because the train travels under the sea.
- London to Berlin: This route takes Hasselhoff to one of his favorite destinations.
- London to Glasgow: Hasselhoff enjoys sleeping on the train during this journey.
- St. Moritz to Zurich: The views along this route are breathtaking, according to Hasselhoff.
Why Travel to Europe by Train?
According to a recent survey by Trainline, 33% of Americans have Europe at the top of their summer travel list. But why travel to Europe by train? Hasselhoff explains that he loves the romance and convenience of train travel. Each time you pull into a new town or village, it’s a different culture, and you get to see incredible landscapes along the train routes. Train travel is also more hassle-free than other forms of transportation, and it allows you to truly experience Europe in a way that flying or driving does not.
Trainline’s Chief Conductor will live like a celebrity during their trip with the chance to experience epic rail adventures from London to Paris, Barcelona to Madrid, or Rome to Florence. The winner will also receive a $5,000 travel stipend, a two-night stay in an iconic luxury hotel, and merchandise signed by Hasselhoff himself. Additionally, five runners-up will receive $500 to be put towards a future European adventure with Trainline.
