Travel inspiration in Paris and Frankfurt
Paris, the capital of France
One of the world’s greatest cities, Paris! The capital of France is also known as the City of Light. This enchanting city, at the crossroads of cultures, is the capital of fashion and home to world highlights such as the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre and Avenue des Champs Elysées, to name but a few. In terms of architectural beauty, art history, events, gastronomy and sheer extravagance, Paris is a milestone ahead of any other city on earth. Paris has one of the world’s most extensive public transport systems. You can take a taxi if you are not much of an adventurer, but that would be a pity! Metro (subway or underground), buses and city bicycles are much more fun and are very easy to use, even for beginners.
Frankfurt, the largest financial centre in Europe
Frankfurt, also known as Frankfurt am Main, ranks among the most popular cosmopolitan urban cities of Europe. The city is one of the most important cities in Germany and is now a major financial and business hub. The city is dotted with a main railway station which connect Frankfurt to the rest of Germany and Europe. Frankfurt is home to a large number of finance institutions and other businesses who have their headquarters and offices in the skyscraping zone of the city. Frankfurt’s social scene is very multicultural and the city is home to Germany’s most celebrated museum landscape, offering its guests a colourful variety of cultural highlights throughout the year.
Reviews & ratings Paris - Frankfurt
"Excellent experience"Govind g.
I rate my Paris Est-Frankfurt HBF visit on the 10th Aug., 2014 an excellent experience on the high speed train.
"Journey by train"Asish Kumar r. 16/08/2014
To and fro train journey fom Frankfurt to Paris in August'14 was wonderful. Only snag was changing the train on return journey midway after crossing France Border.
"Paris-Frankfurt"Ralph b. 08/08/2014
My first trip on a TGV and I loved every bit of it. Great seat, comfortable, on time, and exactly what I needed for my overnight trip from Paris to Frankfurt and back. Looking forward to riding with you again!
"Frankfurt to Paris"Pouneh a. 14/10/2013
A comfortable trip that took me from the main Frankfurt station to Paris' Gare de L'Est. On board food is quite expensive (but that is not unusual) and it is a little bit pricey. Overall, I would recommend travelling by train as it takes you to the heart of Paris and it doesn't even take that long!
