Background information about our project: the history, the future and all people involved in the project.
The Raildude project's objective is to provide detailed and professional information about train travel in Europe and neighbouring regions (Russia, Middle-East, Northern Africa, China). All provided information is based on extensive research and experiences from real travellers. Raildude is no anonymous company, but an enthusiastic group of rail travellers. We are independent and honest.
Raildude is not a highly commercialized project. User data is not misused for the purpose of advertising. It is our aim to promote honest, peaceful and ecological travelling. The information is always updated and we welcome the participation of all users. Anyone can add information and report their own experiences.
Raildude was founded in 1996 by Peter Freisberg under the name "InterRail.net" , originally specializing exclusively on the rail pass "InterRail". In 2011 the platform was renamed to "Raildude".
The work we do, including programming, the big forum, as well as the servers are financed through the sale of train tickets and rail passes via affiliate links. If you like Raildude, please use these links to support all our work.
Thank you and enjoy your train travels!
