How crowded are train lines during July/August?

Hello there :)

I got a eurail pass I'll use from July 22nd to August 11th around Benelux region, Germany and France.

The Eurail website says it is recommended to buy seat reservations in advance during high seasons. But how should I consider the word "advance" in this case? A week, a day or just some hours in advance?

Thank you very much ;)

I got my EUrail pass for around the same days. You can reserve as early as 3 months out. Being that july-august is high season, the earlier the better. you can also reserve at the station for the next day and so on. But if you have a good idea of how long you will be i recommend booking any overnight trips soon.

Keep posted throughout your trip, i will be in the benelux region on the 25th with some other CSers. Maybe we can meet up!!

peace,
thomas
