Is Paris Noord the only station I can get a train to through the interrail pass or can I get a train to Paris Montparnasse 1 Et 2, also using the pass. It’s from Brussels Centraal to Paris.

Trains from Brussels arrive at Paris Nord. To get to Montparnasse from Paris Nord, there are 2 options:

  1. Take metro 4 (direction Mairie de Montrouge / Bagneux Lucie Aubrac) and get off at Montparnasse Bienvenüe.
  2. Take RER B (direction Robinson / Saint-Rémy lès-Chevreuse), change at Denfert-Rochereau to metro 6 (direction Charles de Gaulle) and get off at Montparnasse Bienvenüe.

Option 2 has a change but is usually faster because from metro 4 you need to walk quite a distance (700 m) and metro 6 is much closer to the Montparnasse railway station.

Brilliant, thank you! Do each of these journeys still count as 1 travel day (including the Brussels to Paris journey)

On a travel day, you can use as many trains as you like.

However, the metro and RER in Paris are not operated by one of the participating companies are therefore Interrail is not valid. A ticket is just €1.90 and can also be bought in the bar of Thalys and TGV trains to Paris.
