TGV Est: The more MPH, the more views per trip.

It’s not every day a train route is so revolutionary, it can change travel plans all over Europe. Yet, with standard operating speeds of nearly 200 mph, that’s what the TGV Est/Alleo lines did with their expansion in 2010. Now travelers can enjoy eastward connections from Paris to the Champagne-Ardenne, Lorraine and Alsace regions, and then continue with direct service to Ile-de-France, Northern, Western and Southwestern France, as well as Germany, Luxembourg and Switzerland.

Today’s TGV Est/Alleo trains have reduced travel times to almost 30 destinations by up to 50%, allowing for more frequent departures. You can go from Paris to Munich in just over 6 hours, or Paris to Stuttgart in 3 hours, 46 minutes on the TGV. Paris to Frankfurt takes just 3 hours, 48 minutes, and Paris to Geneva is a mere 3 hours, 5 minutes. And the TGV isn’t just fast, it’s uber-relaxing: whether you’re in Economy Class with its reclining seats and adjustable head and footrests, or Comfort Class which surrounds you in Lacroix designed indulgent interiors. Premier Class offers additional amenities, full-on luxury, and a silent car option.

All in all, it adds up to a chance to really appreciate the views from the windows and the company you’re with, whether it’s family, travel companions, or your new rail car friends. And it’s a journey over 11.5 million people have enjoyed, which can mean only one thing. It’s not just the train that goes fast, but the seats. So book now.

Are you traveling with a rail pass?

A rail pass entitles you to travel on European trains in a specific geographic area, for a specific number of days. If you are planning on taking three or more train trips, a rail pass is often more cost effective than individual train tickets.

Children under age 4 can travel for free on the lap of an adult traveler. If you want your child under age 4 to have their own seat, you need to purchase a ticket for them by selecting “Youth/Child 4-25” and indicating the child is 4 years old.
