Saarbrücken

Saarbrücken is a large German city situated close to the country's border with France. It is home to a number of landmarks, including the stone bridge across the Saar (one of around twelve that cross it).

The city is served by high speed ICE services along the LGV Est line, connecting it with Paris and other German destinations.

How to get to Saarbrücken from
Route 1:

Two of Western Europe's key financial cities are linked by a high-speed service, the operation of which is shared by France's TGV and Germany's InterCity Express (ICE) on a service known as Alleo. The journey is made in around four hours.

There are plans in the works for a direct high-speed service between Frankfurt and London to run in the near future. This would be operated by Deutsche Bahn, using InterCity Express trains, and would cut down the journey time between the two cities considerably, opening up the European high-speed rail network to an even greater extent.

Route 2:

The City Night Line train is a comfortable sleeper train, travelling between various destinations throughout Europe. The journey between Paris and Berlin is made on-board 'Perseus', and takes around 13hrs. City Night Line services are very affordable, and offer a great alternative to travelling during the day, allowing you to arrive fresh at your destination, and saving on hotel bills.
