Train from Strasbourg to Colmar

by Chargap Online Now Nov 26, 2010 at 10:43 AM

We are flying from Charles de Gaulle and we arrive Strasbourg around 6pm and have a hotel reservation in Colmar--how late do the local trains run and where can I find a schedule? We are from Canada so not familiar with your local trains

    You can find train times and details for almost all European trains in English on the reliable and accurate:

    bahn.com/i/view/overseas/en/...

    There are lots of trains, with the last one leaving at 2251.

    If you want to check fares as well you should use the French language:

    voyages-sncf.com/billet-trai...

    It is easy to work out. Do not choose the English option because you will be taken to TGV/Raileurope, whihc does not list all departures (and Raileurope charges commission on fares0.

    Fares are from 11 euro one-way, depending on departure time. You do not need to buy tickets in advance online. You can simply use the ticket machines (or ticket office) at the station. Always best to use cash in machines, imo, to avoid any hitches with 'foreign' cards.

    There's a printable timetable here

    telechargement.ter-sncf.com/...

    Trains run once every hour most of the day, every 30 minutes at peak times.

    Senior fares are available if you have a Carte Senior - http://www.senior-sncf.com/accueil/

    which you won't of course! The card costs 50 Euros, so not worth it for a short stay.

    When I bought my ticket from Strasbourg to Colmar from the ticket desk in the Gare de Strasbourg, the clerk asked me if I was 60 or over and when I replied that I was, she sold me the ticket for 16 euros return (August, 2009). I was asked a number of times during my stay in Germany, France and Austria and I had no special card though I did have proof of age in my passport and Driver's Licence. You may be lucky

    The airport actually has a railway station, called "Entzheim Aerport". The best thing is to buy a through ticket for Colmar there. There is a train from there to Colmar (always with a change in Strassbourg) every hour.
    This station does not have a ticket window though. only a ticket vending machine.

    Trains from Strasbourg to Colmar run half hourly on week days, hourly on week-end, till 23.30 approximatively. So plenty of time. No need to book either.
