Travelling from Paris to Berlin Hbf by Train

Set off from the centre of the City of Lights on a scenic international journey to Berlin by train. Highspeed TGV and Thalys trains will whisk you into Germany, where you’ll swap an equally high-speed ICE train for the final leg into the centre of Berlin.

It may be quicker to fly, but taking the train means you’ll get to watch the picturesque French and German countryside glide past your window from comfortable spacious seats, with the bonus of free WiFi, drinks and snacks and large luggage allowances. Plus, it’s a much eco-friendlier way to travel, so you know you’re doing your bit for the environment at the same time.

Once you get to Berlin Hbf (the main station in Berlin), you'll be right in the centre of the city, just a stroll or subway ride away from some of the German capital's most iconic landmarks like the Reichstag Building or Brandenburg Gate.

Book in advance

Most of the train companies across Europe release their tickets around three to six months in advance, many of which can be cheaper the earlier you book. If you know the dates you want to travel, you may be able to find some cheaper train tickets from Paris to Berlin Hbf by booking early.§

Choose a slower or connecting train
