The ride on the Métro from Austerlitz to Nord would take at least 15 minutes, but you would still want to allow yourself at least 1 full hour between your arrival from Toulouse and your departure to Brussels. You would pay to ride the Métro locally at the turnstiles when you're there.<br /><br />Generally, the France-Spain High Speed from Barcelona to Toulouse can be booked 90 to 120 days in advance of a departure, while the night train from Toulouse to Paris and the Thalys trains from Paris to Brussels can only be booked once within 90 days of an intended departure date.<br /><br /><b><u>Brussels to Prague</u></b><br /><br />A connection from Brussels to Prague takes about 10 hours in duration and involves 2 changes along the way; once in Frankfurt and then once in Nuremberg. The segment from Nuremberg to Prague is actually done by bus, and the bus is covered by the rail pass.<br /><br />Trains from Brussels to Frankfurt and Frankfurt to Nuremberg are high-speed ICE (InterCity Express) trains. The ICE trains from Brussels to Frankfurt and the bus from Nuremberg to Prague both will require reservations as a supplement to the rail pass. In contrast, reservations are just recommended on the ICE trains from Frankfurt to Nuremberg.<br /><br />Passholder reservations for the bus from Nuremberg to Prague are currently not able to be booked on our website, due to an error. Until this is resolved, you would have to purchase these particular reservations by calling us.<br /><br />In the meantime, you can view schedules from Brussels up to Nuremberg on our site just by breaking up your search in Frankfurt. Also, for some reason, our website only recognizes Nuremberg if spelled as ‘Nuremburg’. Therefore, you would do one search for trans from Brussels to Frankfurt and then another search for connecting trains from Frankfurt to ‘Nuremburg’.<br /><br />Generally, the ICE trains from Brussels to Frankfurt can be reserved once within 90 days of an intended departure date, the ICE trains from Frankfurt to Nuremberg can be reserved within 90-180 days of an intended departure, and the bus from Nuremberg to Prague can only be reserved within 60-90 days of an intended departure.<br /><br /><b><u>Prague to Vienna</u></b><br /><br />Trains from Prague to Vienna are Railjet trains. On these trains, reservations are highly recommended as a supplement to the rail pass. Generally, the trains from Prague to Vienna can only be reserved once within 60 days of an intended date of departure.<br /><br /><b><u>Vienna to Budapest</u></b><br /><br />Trains from Vienna to Budapest are Railjet and EC (EuroCity) trains. On these trains, reservations are highly recommended as a supplement to the rail pass. Generally, the trains from Vienna to Budapest can only be reserved within 90 days of an intended date of departure..

    Changed title to Madrid to Barcelona, Barcelona to Brussels, Brussels to Prague, Prague to Vienna, and Vienna to Budapest. Does a Eurail Global Pass cover this? Are reservations required?

    Changed description to Hi, I was wondering what the Global Pass covers from my trip from Madrid-&gt;Barcelona-&gt;Brussels-&gt;Prague-&gt;Vienna-&gt;Budapest? I'm having some difficulty figuring out which countries will require that I have a reservation. Thanks.
