Travelling between the German and French capitals by train is simple. DB Bahn provides a daily connection, running 4 services every day. The earliest departure time will be as early as 4:30 a.m., the final departure of the day is in the early afternoon with the quickest journey time available at 8 hours 20 minutes. There are a number of different routes available, but all trains from Berlin to Paris require a change, which will usually be in Mannheim although you can also travel via Karlsruhe and Hanover.
All trains to Paris leave from Berlin's Hauptbahnhof and accessing the station is simple. The Hauptbahnhof is on the S-Bahn and U-Bahn metro lines, and also enjoys excellent local bus and tram links with the other districts of Berlin. If you are coming from northern suburbs, the best option will probably be to catch a commuter train, while, for anyone staying in central Berlin, the U-Bahn will be the quickest route. At weekends, the U-Bahn runs 24 hours a day, and on other days operates from 4:00 a.m. until 1:00 a.m.
Paris is a city of art, music, food, wine and cinema. If you want to spend a weekend touring the galleries of the Louvre or walk down the banks of the River Seine - Paris is just a short train journey away. All trains from Berlin to Paris arrive at the Garde de l'Est, which is in the northern section of central Paris. To reach central Paris, catch the Metro from nearby Magenta station or catch the local buses that run down the Rue du Fauborg Saint-Martin. The Garde du Nord is also ten minutes walk away if you intend to travel onwards via the Eurostar.
