Hi everyone! I need to go from France (Paris) to Germany on 12.06.2023 after vacation. I have a Interrail pass, but can’t find available seats to reserve:-((( I have checked it also at train station in Bourges (France) but it indicates “train fully booked”. I’m very stressed since I have to work on 13.06.2023. The routes that are suits me are below:

ICE9573 from Paris Est at 10:55

TGV9575 from Paris Est at 13:55

ICE9563 from Paris Est at 15:21

TGV9579 from Paris Est at 17:55
Hope to get any help here.

And what will happen if I will have a ride without seat reservation?


Thank you all in advance!

What is your total journey?

If you already have a reservation to Paris, at what time are you arriving there in which station?

Without more details, help is difficult. But in general: look for a TGV to Strasbourg and then use the regional train to get into Germany. From there you can use any train.

So pretty much everything is fully booked for tomorrow. Here's one of the only possible solutions :

- TGV Paris-Est - Strasbourg 17:25 - 19:11 20€

- RB Strasbourg - Offenburg 19:22 - 19:52


- TGV Paris-Est - Offenburg 17:25 - 19:39 20€

From there onwards to Karlsruhe (arrival 20:49) or Stuttgart (22:02).

Or you take a longer route via Metz (as an example).

- TGV Paris-Est - Metz 10:40 - 12:04 20€

- TER Metz - Strasbourg 13:10 - 15:10

- RB Strasbourg - Offenburg 15:20 - 19:52

From Offenburg onwards to your destination.

In any case do not wait to book.
