I have been looking on Rail Europe for trains - and the information is different on this website than on the interrail app. 

Train from Bruxelles-midi to Koeln Hbf 24th July 2024 16.23 arr 18.15. I am struggling to get a Eurostar seat booking for this. So trains without seat bookings:

On the interrail it states you go to Liege-Guillemins with ICE 317 first, and then to AachenHbf and then Koeln Hbf

on Rail Europe ICE 317 is a direct train to Koeln Hbf and I do not need a seat reservation.

Do you know which is correct??? Very different trains?

If you're not sure, always check the website of the operator, which in this case is Deutsche Bahn. You'll see that reservations are mandatory in summer. You can book them where you want. on it's €3, on it's more expensive and on it's even more expensive.

Thank you for your help!
