Dear Interrail Community,
I am planning my outbound train from Germany to France but have to fight against restrictions everywhere. It seems like there is no escape from Germany.
My aim is to reach Paris (FR) from Aachen (GER). Traveling with the Thalys via Bruxelles (BE) is not included in the Interrail pass since its journey crosses Belgium. For all DB trains like the ICE which are crossing borders to France (somewhere via Mannheim/Saarbrücken (GER)) a reservation is required. But it is not possible to get a reservation especially for this type of train without booking a ticket.
I already had a pretty short call with the DB support and they redirected me to the Interrail support (looks like you 😄). So they where not able to support or offer any other solution.
How is it possible to leave Germany without paying for an extra ticket?
Thank you in advance,
German France Interrail Pass (Friendship Pass 7days in 1month)
Aachen -> Paris (probably via Saarbrücken)
