    Change in reply by Jeff to Hi Dietmar,<br /><br /><b><u>Barcelona to Munich (daytime option)</u></b><br /><br />During the daytime, the most feasible connection from Barcelona to Munich takes 14 hours in duration and involves changing trains in Paris along the way.<br /><br />From Barcelona to Paris, you would take a France-Spain High Speed train.<br /><br />From Paris to Munich, you would take a TGV Est (France-Germany High Speed) train.<br /><br />You would purchase tickets by searching the route under 'BOOK TRAIN TICKETS' on the homepage of our website, <a href="http://www.raileurope.com" rel="nofollow" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com">www.raileurope.com</a>. For the daytime option from Barcelona to Munich, you would just have to break up your search in Paris. Therefore, you would do one search from Barcelona to Paris and another search for connecting trains from Paris to Munich.<br /><br />When you pull up the results of these searches, you will see that the trains from Barcelona to Paris arrive into the Gare de Lyon (station) in Paris, while the trains from Paris to Munich depart from the Est station in Paris. To commute from the Gare de Lyon station to the Est station, you would just take M1 of the Paris Métro to the Bastille stop, where you would switch to M5 of the Métro to Est. The commute from Gare de Lyon to Est on the Métro would take at least 15 minutes in duration, but I would still recommend allowing yourself at least 1 hour to make the transfer. To take the Métro, you would pay locally at the turnstiles before boarding.<br /><br /><b><u>Barcelona to Munich (overnight option)</u></b><br /><br />The overnight option from Barcelona to Munich takes about 19 hours in duration and involves 3 train changes along the way; once in Perpignan, then in Paris, and then in Mannheim. The segment from Perpignan to Paris is on the actual overnight train.<br /><br />From Barcelona to Perpignan, you would take a France-Spain High Speed train.<br /><br />The night train from Perpignan to Paris an Intercités de Nuit train.<br /><br />From Paris to Mannheim, you would take TGV Est (France-Germany High Speed) train.<br /><br />From Mannheim to Munich, you would take a high-speed ICE (InterCIty Express) train.<br /><br />You would purchase tickets by searching the route under 'BOOK TRAIN TICKETS' on the homepage of our website, <a href="http://www.raileurope.com" rel="nofollow" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com">www.raileurope.com</a>. For the overnight option from Barcelona to Munich, you would just have to piece together the connection by doing a separate search for each segment. Therefore, you would do one search from Barcelona to Perpignan, another search to access the night train from Perpignan to Paris, another search for trains from Paris to Mannheim, and then another search for connecting trains from Mannheim to Munich.<br /><br />To view the types of compartments you're being offered on the night train from Perpignan to Paris you would click ‘Fare details’ after clicking on the fare itself.<br /><br />When doing these searches, you will see that the night train from Perpignan to Paris arrives into the Paris Austerlitz station, while trains from Paris to Mannheim depart from the Paris depart from the Paris Est station. To commute from Austerlitz to Est, you would take M5 of the Paris Métro. The ride from Austerlitz to Est on the Métro would just take about 12 minutes, but I would still recommend allowing yourself at least 1 hour to make the transfer. To take the Métro, you would pay locally at the turnstiles before boarding..
