How much flexibility to railpasses allow?

Jump to last reply

In middle of january me and a3 friends (we we will all be 19yo students) are hoping to go backpacking in europe.

When my dad did this as a youngster, he got a railpass and completely winged it. However, this was before compulsory reservations were brought in.

Is it possible to still wing it? Can reservations be made a couple of days in advance, or do they have to be weeks in advance?

price isnt a big issue as i think ive accurately come up with a cost including all reservations, i just want to know if winging it is realistic.

We hope to travel
Paris -> Brussels -> Amsterdam -> Hamburg -> Berlin -> Contiki tour to Hungary -> Lichtenstein -> Venice -> Rome -> Pisa -> nice -> paris.

but we want maximum flexibility from hungary onwards, are we being realistic?
