speed train from Karlsruhe to Paris

Jump to last reply

My family and I (three of us) will need to take a speed train from the Karlsruhe HBH on June 19th, 2011 to Paris (Gare du Nord). We will need the return trip to take us back to the Karlsruhe HBH on June 21st. I've been trying to conquer my trepidation of navigating the deutschebahn website (bahn.de). It's the actual choosing and reserving tickets that's concerning me. I don't want to mistakingly reserve the wrong thing, even though I realize the website is offered in English. We're staying near the Swiss border, so driving the 200 km to Karlsruhe on the morning of Sunday, the 19th, will have to be done quite early, assuming there will be an ICE or TVG departing from Karlsruhe to Paris that morning. Can anyone offer any advice/suggestions, please, as to assure oneself they are, in fact, buying/reserving the correct tickets? What should one do when the actual price of the tickets isn't even available??? Does anyone know what the price of these tickets tends to/can be in June??? Thanks very much for any information!

Actually, now that Ive looked on bahn.de, I see that only TGV and RER make this journey. Why wouldn't ICE be available for this trip??? Should I look elsewhere?

Thank you!
