"My trip from Munich to Paris"Mishary a. 14/08/2014
It was my first time in raileurope, I liked everything in my trip it was a little bit expensive but it was worth it, the seats could be more comfortable, and the breakfast was only one choice and there was bacon in it so, I as a Muslim couldn't eat it. But over all that trip was the most relaxed trip in my journey to Europe. Value for money Convenience

This five-hour journey takes you through some lovely coutryside on the Franco-German border. We took first class which, booked ahead, was excellent value. The bar car is pretty basic, so don't expect a nice lunch en route. Value for money Convenience
