Fast train from koblenz to Cochem

by joanyoung Online Now Feb 12, 2010 at 9:46 PM

Our time is limited, so need to know about fast train schedules from Koblenz to Cochem.
The info I asked for on the DB website said it would take 6 to 7 hours by train between those two towns. Not possible, unless it is a "milk-run", dropping off tourists along the way. What is the most efficient train travel Koblenz to Cochem?

    Koblenz to Cochem/Mosel? That's a bit more than half an hour by RE - Regional Express - or a bit more than 45 minutes by Regional train. Did you maybe misspell one of the two towns and the website came up with a different town far away?

    There is another Koblenz in Switzerland and a Koblentz in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern - did you select one of those by mistake? Otherwise - impossible. The ride takes about half an hour on direct RE trains.

    Many thanks. I may have failed to specify WHICH Koblenz, thus got the "wrong number". Your reply makes sense.

    Last question: We want to take the Passau-Koblenz fast train, which is an IC, on a Monday. Should we buy ahead or at the station a couple days before? This would be April 12th. Again, THANK YOU! Will there be any train changes? Very grateful for your services. Joan

    Re your second query - If you google the German Railway website, Deutsche Bahn, and select English you will be able to see your options. There is a direct train at 1326 hrs where there are still Special prices saving over 100 Euro, these tickets need to be purchased online, you will have prompts all the way. I suggest reserving seats, for the small cost it is worth it especially as you sound like a couple and will want to sit together.
    When you do a booking with German Rail your printout is your ticket and must be produced with the credit card you used when the conductor comes around.
    It is well worth studying this website as there are often very good special fares offered that are not available over the counter. Just be aware that with these online tickets you must use the train you selected.

    There are a couple of direct trains from Passau to Koblenz.For the early one at 7:18 from Passau you can still get reduced tickets at 49 Euro.Regular fare is 96 Euro. Check out the bahn.de website and if you like a connection, book now.

    Early April is Easter week and Easter holidays last into a week later, so there may be more people going somewhere than otherwise. I would also recommend reserving your seat, it's a long journey and you won't want to get up all the time and look for another seat.
