Booking Problems on Bahn.de

Jump to last reply

I searched for help, but was unable to find exactly what I'm looking for, so I apologize if this has been asked before..

I am attempting to book tickets from Bahn.de. We want to go from Paris to Munich on Sunday, May 22. The 92 day window opened up on Saturday afternoon (I tried Sat morning around 10amCST and couldn't book yet, but as of 6pmCST Sat evening, I could book). But I think I'm doing something wrong as it keeps telling me there are no tickets available?!

I suppose it's possible all the tickets are sold out, but highly unlikely, right?

Here's what I'm doing (and I apologize if it's too much info, but I figure more is better!):
I go through the destination and date information and get to the list of trains. We want to travel on the 13:08-19:33 train through Mannheim. I click purchase for 198 euros for two people in 1st class (Europa-Spezial Frankreich).

On the next page, I keep the "Ticket with seat reservation" button checked.

For seating, I only change the Location of Seat to "next to each other".

I keep the "Print out your online ticket" checked.

On the next screen, for the seats on the train from Mannheim-Munchen it says "request feasible" with a checkmark.

However, on the one for Paris-Mannheim under Reservation Request it says "? Can only be checked on making a booking." And it says "Mandatory Reservation." I think this means I must have a seat reservation, which is fine, as I checked the box on the previous screen for "ticket with seat reservation". Is that correct?

It allows me to hit proceed, then to log-in and enter my ID and payment information.

I double check the information and click "Make Booking".

The next screen says:
"Dear Customer, No more seats are available on this train, for which a reservation is compulsory."

It has a button that says "Proceed". When I click that, it takes me back to the screen listing the train options (times, changes, cost, etc).

Am I doing something wrong? Are the seats all sold out (?!?!). I appreciate any help or advice you can give me!
