Paris-Germany High Speed - Engineering works in Kehl

 

Due to the construction of a new bridge between France and Germany, no train will run between Strasbourg and Kehl from August 28th to October 10th, which impacts trains between Paris and Munich:

  • International TGVs between Paris, Stuttgart & Munich will run via Forbach with a modified schedule
  • International trains EC 361 (Strasbourg-Munich) and EC 360 (Munich-Strasbourg) will be replaced by a bus service connecting Strasbourg to Kehl and then run normally between Kehl and Munich and vv.

Good to know:

  • Paris-Strasbourg TGVs are not impacted, but there won't be any train between Strasbourg and Germany
  • For travels from Germany to Strasbourg, travellers can take the bus from Kehl to Strasbourg.
