Travel inspiration in Paris and Berlin
Paris, the capital of France
One of the world’s greatest cities, Paris! The capital of France is also known as the City of Light. This enchanting city, at the crossroads of cultures, is the capital of fashion and home to world highlights such as the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre and Avenue des Champs Elysées, to name but a few. In terms of architectural beauty, art history, events, gastronomy and sheer extravagance, Paris is a milestone ahead of any other city on earth. Paris has one of the world’s most extensive public transport systems. You can take a taxi if you are not much of an adventurer, but that would be a pity! Metro (subway or underground), buses and city bicycles are much more fun and are very easy to use, even for beginners.
Berlin, capital of Germany
Berlin is the capital of Germany and also its largest city. It is located in the northeast of the country and is home to more than 4 million people. Did you know that Berlin is 9 times bigger than Paris and has 1,700 bridges, more than Venice?
After the World War II, the city was divided into two parts surrounded by the Berlin Wall. In 1989 the wall was destroyed, followed by the German reunification in 1990. As a result, Berlin regained its status as the capital of Germany. Having bounced back confidently from 20th century division, Berlin is has become one of Europe’s most exciting destinations.
Today Berlin, home to a multicultural population, is a city of culture, media, science and creativity.
Reviews & ratings Paris - Berlin
"TGV Paris CDG - Lille"Paul k.
First-time users of raileurope in Australia and very pleased with the experience. The website is very easy to navigate with a minimum of steps and abundant information. Printing the tickets at home saves the wait for postal or courier delivery. The best part of the experience was when we were told by SNCF staff at CDG station that we had saved €86 by buying in Australia.
"Very smooth"Joanne m. 16/04/2014
Excellent trip from Paris to nice and staff communicated very well in English . Choose a seat for comfort that goes the way you are travelling and there is double luggage room upstairs where you can put extra luggage.
"Frankfurt to Paris in comfort"Desmond c. 13/04/2014
I recently travelled from Germany Frankfurt to Paris France using the rail. I needed a last minute ticket and found the staff very helpful. there were English speaking staff on hand to assist me and, travelling first class, I was able to spend my time waiting in the comfort of a lounge with free drinks and a light meal. the train itself was well appointed and I was able to sleep for approx. two hours of the four hour journey. the train was clean, on time and comfortable. I am a simple man, this is all I want

"Timesaver to Lourdes"Wendy s. 11/04/2014
We took the TGV from Gare Montparnasse in Paris to Lourdes and returned. The journey south was speedy until a few stops before Lourdes, when we had to stop for half an hour. The return trip was consistently slower, about an hour longer overall. For both directions our seats faced backwards; we would have preferred forward facing seats. On the plus side, the staff were helpful, the buffet car was close by, the train ride was very smooth and quiet. We really enjoyed seeing the French countryside. We couldn't possibly have driven to Lourdes as quickly. I would definitely recommend the service to others.
"Paris to Zurich in style!"Julie h. 10/04/2014
I found a great deal on a first class ticket from Paris to Zurich through Rail Europe. A super-comfy seat by the window, a meal served at my seat as the French and then Swiss countryside rolled by ... What's not to like? It was a relaxing and stress-free journey, and so much better than flying!
"Amsterdam - Paris"Roslyn c. 09/04/2014
Great Trip and service
"STUTTGART HBF - STRASBOURG"Craig s. 08/04/2014
Everything worked according to plan
"MUENCHEN HBF - STUTTGART "Craig s. 08/04/2014
Travelled in the economy section for this leg. No overall problems apart from the limited space available to store baggage. We were fortunate that there were not a lot of travellers at that point.
"STRASBOURG - PARIS "Craig s. 08/04/2014
No problem experienced with this leg of the trip - all went accordingly to plan
"Train Trip To Paris"Anna p. 13/12/2013
We enjoyed our train trip to Paris. We found it very quick and very easy. The only thing we didn't know was how to book seats that faced the way the train was travelling. As my daughter and I both get motion sickness we moved to vacant seats that faced the correct way as we were feeling unwell. I'm not sure if this service is available when you book you tickets but it would definitely help us next time if it was. Otherwise the journey was great.
"Travel through Europe"Taryn f. 13/12/2013
We travelled by train through Europe and when we got to Zurich airport to leave to return home via the airlines we overheard a gentleman say to his family that their plane from Zurich to London had been cancelled. Not only did they get to the airport for the 2 hours approx early to checkin but then had to wait because their plane was delayed and they would have had to clear customs the other end anyway! I really wanted to ask him why he didn't but a train ticket to Paris and get on the Eurostar to London. Not only would he had to have been at the train station just at the time the train left but he could have made the connection by looking up train times and arrivals and rebooking before he even left home and printed out his tickets. It's all too easy. Big deal you have to lift your luggage on and off the train. I have no regrets of using the train.

"travel from Finland to Rome"Annemarie h. 09/12/2013
Have been very satisfied with the Eurail Global Pass, which I used to travel around in Germany and from Germany to Finland, Rome and Paris. Would choose to travel with this pass again. Has been a great experience. Thank you.
"Paris to Strasbourg"Jill g. 08/12/2013
A most comfortable journey. The only difficulty for a couple of old girls (over 70) was hauling our cases up a flight of stairs - our seats were on the top level, but the view was great!
