Europe is mind-blowing in its diversity and individuality. From razor-sharp snow-covered mountains to baking hot beaches Europe has just about everything in between. People from all around the world are seizing the opportunity to travel this amazing continent using an interrail pass but it can be hard to know where to go.

One way is to use food and drink to guide your travel itinerary. So, here is MyBaggage.com’s guide to 5 of the best delicacies to try while interrailing through Europe.

Aperol Spritz (Italy)

In the (usually) glorious sunshine of Italy you might find yourself pining for a refreshing drink to revive you. Before lunging for a beer or glass of wine, consider instead an Aperol Spritz. Aperol is an Italian liquor made from oranges, rhubarb, herbs and roots.

The gorgeous and vibrant orange drink is then topped up with prosecco and garnished with an orange slice. It might not seem like much, but this is without doubt one of the most refreshing drinks in Europe and is ideal to sit unwind and watch the sun set after a long day of exploring Italy.

Raclette (Switzerland/France)

Cheese is one the greatest inventions that humanity has graced the Earth with. There isn’t much better than cheese… other than melted cheese. Raclette is a beautiful and simple dish that is also a fantastic experience to share with friends.

A half wheel of hard cheese is placed on the table in front of (traditionally) a small portable coal fire. You move the cheese close to the heat until it has melted and then scrap that gooey cheese off and onto your choice of sides such as potatos or crusty bread.

Rabarbar Z Miodem (Poland)

Most people tend to interrail around Europe during the summer months, for obvious reasons. University is finished and the glorious baking sunshine is beckoning you to come to the continent. But walking around all day in the relentless sun can leave you parched.

Luckily, Poland has the perfect thirst-quenching elixir that will save you at the end of a long day. This is a sweet rhubarb and honey drink that is served over much needed ice.

Trdelnik (Prague)

This wonderful and delicate pastry is famous on the streets of Prague and can be purchased all across the city. The name comes from the wooden instrument that the pastry is wrapped around and baked on. This unique technique creates a strange, hollow spiraled pastry that is perfect for eating whilst exploring the city.

It’s slightly similar in texture to a donut but is not deep fried but instead is baked. Once heated and ready the Trdelnik is rolled in a mixture of sugar and cinnamon as flavour.
