Train Travel

Sixteen TGV trains per day leave Paris (Gare de l'Est) every hour for the 140-minutes, 500-km (315-miles) journey to Strasbourg. Nancy is only 90 minutes away on one of the 10 direct TGVs also leaving every hour, where there are connections for Toul and Épinal. Several local trains a day run between Strasbourg and Colmar (40 mins), stopping in Sélestat (bus link to Ribeauvillé). There's also a snail-pace daily service from Strasbourg to Obernai, Barr, and Dambach-la-Ville. But you'll need a car to visit smaller villages.
