How do you book reservations for St Goar to Bruges for travel with a Eurail Germany-Benelux Pass?

I am traveling with a German-Benelux pass from St Goar, GE to Bruges on Sat 15 Sep 2012. I want to make reservations for the journey, but don't know how. Is there 1 place to make reservations for this 2 country journey with various modes of travel?

    Hi Clark,

    The quickest rail connections from St. Goar to Bruges take about 5.5 hours in duration and involve 3 train changes along the way; once in Koblenz, once in Cologne and then once in Brussels.

    Of the trains that comprise of this connection, reservations would only be required on the segment from Cologne to Brussels. You would make reservations on a train from Cologne to Brussels by clicking on 'Book a Reservation for Your Pass' or 'Book your Rail Pass Reservations' from the homepage of our website, These trains can be reserved at any point within 90 days of an intended date of departure, depending on availability.

    Trains from St. Goar to Koblenz don't accept reservations, so the rail pass is all you would need to board. Reservations are not at all necessary on a train from Koblenz to Cologne, so the rail pass is all you would need to board. Trains from Brussels to Bruges don't accept reservations, so the rail pass is all you would need to board.

    For planning purposes, you can just view the schedules for these non-reservable trains under 'Check Fares and Schedules' or 'Find Fares & Schedules' on our homepage. To do this, you would piece together the connection by doing a separate search for each segment (i.e. one search for trains from St. Goar to Koblenz, another search for Koblenz to Cologne and then another search for the final segment from Brussels to Bruges).
