By Mulder, 30 november 2023

As the Christmas festivities approach, the countdown is on, inviting everyone to open the first boxes of the advent calendar, decorate the tree, light a fire and immerse themselves in the warm atmosphere of the unmissable Christmas films. This year, Trainline, Europe's leading bus and train booking app, is offering a unique holiday experience: a tour of Europe in the footsteps of the best end-of-year films.

All I want for Christmas is... London!
Less than 3 hours from Paris, the British capital is the setting for many cinematic Christmas masterpieces, where English humor, iconic cabs and festive spirit always captivate audiences. Board the train to follow in the footsteps of Bridget Jones, discover iconic landmarks such as Clink Street, and debate between Daniel Cleaver and Mark Darcy while sipping a beer at the famous Globe Tavern. Love Actually fans won't want to miss a visit to 10 Downing Street and a stroll through Notting Hill, immortalized by the romantic placard scene.

Second stop, Paris
All roads lead to Paris, thanks to the many stations within the city's walls. Relive the cult scenes from the film "Le Père Noël est une ordure", recently released on a famous platform. Take the opportunity to admire the department store windows, the decorations on the main boulevards, and visit the Vincennes Zoo, where the final scene of this iconic film was shot.

Direction Madrid
Thanks to new connections with Renfe and night trains, follow in the footsteps of the hit series "Elite" and its special Christmas season. Experience the teenage spirit on the campus of the European University of Madrid in Villaviciosa de Odón, where Samuel, Nadia, Carla and Rebeka have left their mark.

Austrian festivities in Vienna
Watch "Le Grand Bal du réveillon" en route to Vienna for a magical evening on the night train. Learn to waltz like Amy and discover the sumptuous illuminations, the Christmas market in front of City Hall, and Schönbrunn Palace, transforming Vienna into a fairytale setting fit for an empress.

Terminus: Bruges
Less than 3 hours from Paris, discover the magical world of "The Claus Family". Visit the cobbled Walplein square, the Hôtel Académie and the Bonifacius bridge to immerse yourself in the enchantment of the film.
