I'm planning to go from Østerport station in Copenhagen to Hamburg. From there I plan to go to Berlin and then Dresden and finally to Amsterdam.
Is it absolutely necessary to buy the tickets in advance as am having difficulty in understanding the train system in Europe as well as I don't want to loose the flexibility by buying something in advance.
I checked this Eurail Pass for three countries (Copenhagen, Germany and Netherlands) and the travel days (which I guess calculates the fares)? If I get this pass is it economical and flexible or just going to the station and buying the ticket.
They say the following while booking the trip:
You can use this Eurail Pass on 8 days of your choice during a set period of 2 months. Travel on back-to-back, consecutive days, or spread them out during the months. It's up to you. On each day, ride on as many trains as you like between midnight and midnight.
Make up your trip as you go.
Great for exploring the region in depth.
Travel fast or slow, as you please.
