I’m trying to reserve seats for my trip from Paris to Frankfurt.

Per raileurope site that eurail linked me to, it shows no seats for all trains that afternoon while i haven’t completed checkout it seems to be bookable on the eurail site..


Actually when I click on the more info link, it shows it can only be done at the station?? What happened to reserving all online? is it because there’s no space anymore or i’m rolling the Russia

n roulette?

Can someone tell me whether it is really all sold out?

All trains do have availability in both 1st and 2nd class.

But it’s not possible to reserve two trains with a change here.

You may just reserve a seat from Paris to Frankfurt (Main) main station = Frankfurt (Main) Hbf in the city.

Or you may just reserve from Paris to Mannheim if you’d like to go directly to the airport and change there to another train to Frankfurt airport (no reservation needed).
