    Changed reply in topic of Paris CDG Airport to train station for our trip to Frankfurt? by Jeff to Hi Karen,<br /><br />If you do not want to commute into the city of <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/paris" rel="nofollow">Paris</a> first, you can actually board high-speed trains right at the airport that will take you to either <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/strasbourg" rel="nofollow" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com/city/strasbourg">Strasbourg</a> or <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/brussels" rel="nofollow" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com/city/brussels">Brussels</a>. From <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/strasbourg" rel="nofollow">Strasbourg</a> or <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/brussels" rel="nofollow">Brussels</a>, there are direct high-speed trains to <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/frankfurt" rel="nofollow">Frankfurt</a>. Therefore, you would just need to switch trains at either of those stations, which you'd likely find easier than doing the commute from <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/place/paris-charles-de-gaulle-airport-5748" rel="nofollow" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com/place/paris-charles-de-gaulle-airport-5748">CDG</a> to <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/paris" rel="nofollow" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com/city/paris">Paris</a> to catch your train.<br /><br />You would purchase tickets by searching a route under 'Tickets &amp; Reservations' on the homepage of our website, <a href="http://www.raileurope.com" rel="nofollow" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com">www.raileurope.com</a>.<br /><br />When searching trains departing right out of the rail station at <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/place/paris-charles-de-gaulle-airport-5748" rel="nofollow" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com/place/paris-charles-de-gaulle-airport-5748">Paris CDG</a>, you would just have to type 'Paris Airport' in the field for the departure city. Therefore, your search would be from 'Paris Airport' to 'Frankfurt'.<br /><br />The options you're offered will have transfer times at the station that are sufficient. However, if you wish, you can arrange for a transfer time of your own choosing at the stations just by doing a separate search for each segment of the connection (i.e. one search from 'Paris Airport' to 'Strasbourg' and the another search for later trains from 'Strasbourg' to 'Frankfurt'). This would enable you to take your time at the station, grab a bite to eat, etc.<br /><br />At the <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/place/strasbourg-gare-centrale" rel="nofollow">station in Strasbourg</a>, you would want to allow yourself 10 minutes at minimum to change trains. At the station in Brussels (<a href="http://www.raileurope.com/place/brussels-midi" rel="nofollow" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com/place/brussels-midi">Brussels Midi station</a>), you would want to allow yourself something more like 20-30 minutes at the minimum to change trains.<br /><br />Trains from Paris CDG to Strasbourg are <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/train/tgv-7537" rel="nofollow" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com/train/tgv-7537">TGV</a> trains. Trains from Strasbourg to Frankfurt are <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/train/france-germany-7538" rel="nofollow" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com/train/france-germany-7538">TGV Est</a> (<a href="http://www.raileurope.com/train/france-germany-7538" rel="nofollow" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com/train/france-germany-7538">France-Germany High Speed</a>) trains. Generally, <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/train/tgv-7537" rel="nofollow">TGV</a> trains can only be booked once within 90 days of an intended departure date. <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/train/france-germany-7538" rel="nofollow" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com/train/france-germany-7538">TGV Est</a> (<a href="http://www.raileurope.com/train/france-germany-7538" rel="nofollow" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com/train/france-germany-7538">France-Germany High Speed</a>) can generally be booked up to 180 days in advance of a departure.<br /><br />Trains from Paris CDG to Brussels are Brussels-France TGV trains. Trains from <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/train-tickets/discover-europe/article/brussels-frankfurt" rel="nofollow">Brussels to Frankfurt</a> are <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/train/ice-7534" rel="nofollow">ICE</a> (<a href="http://www.raileurope.com/train/ice-7534" rel="nofollow" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com/train/ice-7534">InterCity Express</a>) trains. Generally, Brussels-France TGV trains can only be booked once within 90 days of an intended departure date. <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/train/ice-7534" rel="nofollow">ICE</a> trains can generally be booked up to 180 days in advance of a departure..

    Changed reply in topic of Getting to Deidesheim GERMANY from Lake Como Italy? by Jeff to Hi Kathy,<br /><br />Deidesheim is accessed by regional trains from Neustadt Weinstrasse. Tickets for regional trains from Neustadt Weinstrasse to Deidesheim are only able to be purchased locally in Germany. With that being the case, schedules from Neustadt Weinstrasse to Deidesheim are not able to be viewed on our website. However, these trains depart once every half hour throughout the day, and the ride only takes 10 minutes.<br /><br />In their entirety, the most feasible connections from <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/como" rel="nofollow">Como</a> to Deidesheim take 7 to 8 hours in duration and involve 4 or 5 train changes along the way.<br /><br />Except for the segment from Neustadt Weinstrasse to Deidesheim, you can purchase tickets for the rest of the trip just by breaking up your search in the cities where you'd be changing trains.<br /><br />For one route, you would do one search from Como to Arth Goldau, another search from Arth Goldau to Basel, another search from <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/train-tickets/discover-europe/article/basel-karlsruhe" rel="nofollow">Basel to Karlsruhe</a>, and then another search from Karlsruhe to Neustadt Weinstrasse.<br /><br />For another route, you would do one search from Como to Arth Goldau, another search from Arth Goldau to Zurich, another search from <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/train-tickets/discover-europe/article/zurich-karlsruhe" rel="nofollow" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com/train-tickets/discover-europe/article/zurich-karlsruhe">Zurich to Karlsruhe</a>, and then another search from Karlsruhe to Neustadt Weinstrasse.<br /><br />Trains from <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/basel" rel="nofollow">Basel</a> to <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/karlsruhe" rel="nofollow">Karlsruhe</a> and <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/zurich" rel="nofollow">Zurich</a> to <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/karlsruhe" rel="nofollow" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com/city/karlsruhe">Karlsruhe</a> are high-speed <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/train/ice-7534" rel="nofollow" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com/train/ice-7534">ICE</a> (<a href="http://www.raileurope.com/train/ice-7534" rel="nofollow" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com/train/ice-7534">InterCity Express</a>) trains..

    Changed reply in topic of Train times from Granada to Seville for July not yet posted by Jeff to Hi,<br /><br />The schedules should be the same once released. Generally, schedules don't fluctuate that much throughout the year, if at all.<br /><br />However, for the past several years, there has been construction on the rail line just outside <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/granada" rel="nofollow">Granada</a>. Since this construction has been going on, trains are only going as far as Antequera. Travelers then need to take a bus between Antequera and Granada. The buses are synchronized with the trains, so the transfer is made easy.<br /><br />When purchasing tickets for this route, you would break up your search in Antequera. Therefore, you would do one search from Granada to Antequera and then another search from Antequera to Seville.<br /><br />All options might not display yet for your travel date. We expect all departures will become available to book at some point within the next few weeks, so please continue to check periodically.<br /><br />Rest assured, the tickets we issue from Granada to Antequera are valid to cover the bus. The bus takes you right to the station in Antequera..
