Stopover for train trip

Jump to last reply

Dear Fodorites. My wife and I plan to visit Europe this April. We will arrive Frankfurt by plane and then take a train to Brussels. However, on the way to Brussels, we'd like to stopover in Cologne for a few hours to admire the beauty of Cologne Cathedral and then go straight to Brussels.

Question is: If I purchase ticket from Frankfurt - Brussels, is it allowed to stopover at Cologne for a couple hours without paying extra? I surfed the DB website and the 'saving fare' is different between 'direct route Frankfurt - Brussels' and 'Frankfurt - Brussels with 1 stopover in Cologne' (EUR49 vs 79). By the way, standard fare is the same (EUR108.10).

And could you please suggest which is better: buy ticket in advance or just buy on the travel date.

This is my 2nd time in Europe, but the 1st time for us to buy ticket individually, since we used EurailPass last time.

Thank you very much
