Train Strasbourg → Luxembourg
Duration 2h08 - From $14
Where smart people learn to love Alsace Capital of Alsace, home of the European Parliament and the Council of Europe, and less than 2.5 hours from Paris by TGV, Strasbourg beckons with a blend of history and modernity. The Grande Île, Strasbourg's historic city center, is a UNESCO world heritage site. This was the first time such an honor was placed on an entire city center. There are incredible sights to see in just this one area : The Palais Rohan, 500-hundred year old churches including the Cathédral de Nôtre Dame (the tallest medieval building in Europe) and its famous astronomical clock. If you're lucky to be here around the holidays, the Strasbourg Christmas market surrounding the church has been an annual event since 1570. The neighborhood known as Petit France sits along the banks of The Grand Île. Famous for its medieval, black and white timber-framed buildings, the renowned Maison Kammerzell is the city's best example on Place de la Cathédrale in an area formerly belonging to the Holy Roman Empire.

Don’t dare dream of skipping this grand duchy Some might think Luxembourg City is like a “flyover” state. Good to stop and stretch one’s legs on a long journey, but not much to offer in the way of food, culture or fun. How mistaken you would be. Learn more about Luxembourg

"There is no direct train from Reims to Charles de Gaulle Airport. We had to take the train from Reims to Paris East Station and walked for 10 minutes with luggage to Paris North Station. Taxi at such peak hours is not an option. It was raining and the streets were full of traffic and people. Finding the right counter to buy a ticket from Paris North Station to the airport is very testing. Having queued for half an hour, we were told that we needed to go to a counter at the corner of the big ticket hall. Why you cannot get all kinds of ticket from any ticket sale counter ? There were no English signs on this. The train from Paris North Station to the airport was fully loaded with commuters. The particular train that we took stopped abruptly short of two stations. All passengers were told to leave the train and wait for the next train to the airport. We did not understand the French announcement but followed those surprised looking passengers to disembark. Again, we had to take our luggage and braced the rains to take shelter, and waited for another train to come. Why there was not a better way to go from Reims to Charles de Gaulle Airport ? Or there was one but not shown up when we booked online ? I would like to have some feedbacks so that we can be smarter travellers next time. "
