We like our trains here at Trainline, and we love Paris almost as much, after all, it’s just about as perfect a Euro city break as you can find. But, we think we can improve even on perfection with this train route, connecting the French capital with Stuttgart. It’s a journey of a mere 3 hours and you’ll be travelling by high-speed TGV and Deutsche Bahn Intercity Express (ICE) trains, meaning your comfy journey will be made even comfier with free extras like Wi-Fi and power sockets at every seat.

So, why not extend a few days of French leisure for a trip across the border to Germany? Stuttgart is the home of Mercedes and Porsche, with museums that lay out the history of these iconic cars. If you’re less about four wheels and more about four legs, the city has expansive botanical gardens cand zoos. Of course, no trip to Germany is complete without a taste of local beer, best enjoyed at one of the central bars near the impressive central square Schlossplatz.
