Trams are a quintessentially local form of transport. One makes a short hop on a tram, not a major journey, and certainly not an international trip. Or so one might assume. There are actually some longish tram routes. In hidden europe 25, we described the surreal delights of the world’s longest tram line, the 68-km long Kusttram which runs almost the entire length of the Belgian coastline. Of course, even a short tram ride is a chance to sit back and relax, and it was not so long ago that some German trams had an onboard bistro. On the 50-minute run from Krefeld to Düsseldorf, passengers could partake of beer and sausages.
