TGV trains from Paris to Reims

The average train time from Paris to Reims is 1h 20m, although it takes just 39m on the fastest TGV INOUI services. There are around 20 trains per day running from Paris to Reims, including 12 direct trains. The first train leaves Paris Gare de l’Est at 06:58 and the last train leaves at 21:36. 

  • All trains depart from Paris Gare de l’Est station. 
  • All trains arrive into either Reims Ville or Champagne-Ardenne TGV stations.  

From the Eiffel Tower to elegant tipples, travel from the French capital to Reims – the unofficial centre of the Champagne region – in just over half an hour by high-speed TGV train. Why sit in traffic and struggle to park when you can relax in wide comfortable seating and watch the world go by? Reservations on TGV trains are required, so if you know when you want to travel, make sure you book in advance as you can’t buy tickets on the train – you’re also likely to save money on train tickets this way too, as prices increase as the departure date gets closer.  

If you want to arrive in the city centre, make sure your train is heading to Reims Ville. If your train terminates at Champagne-Ardenne TGV, you can change for a TER train for a 12-minute journey to Reims Ville station, or jump in a taxi to arrive in the centre in around 8 minutes.  

As the journey time is so short, Reims makes a great day trip destination from Paris – we recommend visiting the cathedral (just a 12-minute walk from the station) or book a tour in one of the many Champagne houses dotted around the city.

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 Reims by booking early.§

Be flexible with your travel times

Many of the train services in Europe are also popular commuter services, lots of train companies increase ticket prices during “peak hours” (generally between 06:00 – 10:00 and 15:00 – 19:00 on weekdays). If you can, consider travelling outside of peak hours to find lower priced tickets.

Choose a slower or connecting train

On some of the busier routes, you might also have the option to take a slower or connecting train. It may take a little longer than some high-speed or direct services, but if you have a little extra time on your hands, you might find a cheaper fare. Plus, you'll have more time to enjoy the view of the countryside!

§Some train companies may not offer any Advance ticket types or cheaper deals for early bookings.

This is dependent on the individual train operating company you travel with.
