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.
