Day trip to Champagne region

Jump to last reply

I'll be visiting the region on a Saturday. I plan on this sightseeing schedule:-

Arrive from Strasbourg at Reims Ville station at 10.11. Visit Notre Dam and the Palais du Tau.

Grab lunch, or a quick bite.

Take train from Reims Maison Blanche at 13.34, arrive in Epernay at 1400. Visit Moet and Chandon at 1500. I perfer Moet to the other Champagne houses and they will be reopened by the time I am in France.

Travel back to Strasbourg by TGV.

I have some questions:-

How far are Notre Dame and Palais du Tau from Reims Ville and Reims Maison stations?

I have a choice of a train that departs at 1638, 1712 or 1903. Is there anything to do in Epernay, or am I best of just heading back earlier. I need to make two connections on the way back and would rather not take the last trains of the day.

Also, the 1712 departure requires a long connection in Champagne Ardenne TGV station, are there shops/restaurants at the station, the connection is for 54 mins so I was thinking if I take this route it would be ideal to have dinner at the station.

Any suggestions will be appreciated. Thank you.
