It would take 6 hours by train.
The German Rail website ( www.bahn.de ) has fares as low as 39 euros. These are special fares and often book out fast. You can purchase tickets online up to 89 days before your trip. The earlier you can book, the better chance of getter one of the discount fares.
There is an English language option on the German Rail website.
Thank you. I am finding the rail site not so user friendly. I think if I had the correct connections I could use it better. So, I go from Paris to?? then connect at ?? Six hours sounds really good. It was going to take a lot longer the way I was working it out. Can you give me a little more info? Thank you.
As stated above, go to www.bahn.de and change it to English near the top of the page. Note that you are traveling from Paris to Nördlingen or Noerdlingen, not Nordlingen. You cannot just ignore those two dots (umlaut) above the "o" as TripAdvisor loves to do. That means if you cannot type vowels with umlauts, an "e" must follow the vowel (ä=ae,ö=oe,ü=ue). Then type in your travel dates and time, and see what connections come up. You can click on the suggested routes and trains to see when and where the connections are, and by some more clicking get all of the intermediate places that the train stops along the way. I would also always select quick connections, and although they may seem short to you, all are easily makeable. The worst that would happen is that you have to take a later train if you miss one.
For some inexpensive traveling after you arrive, Noerdlingen although in Bavaria is also accessable using the Baden-Wuerttemberg Lander day train ticket, as well as the Bavarian one. For 19€ single or 28€ for a group of 2-5 you can travel about either of these German states on any means of public transport WITHIN that state except the fast long distance IC,EC and ICE trains from 9AM to 3AM the next morning on weekdays, and from midnight to 3AM the next day on weekends.
Thank you. I thought those two little dots might be the problem, but my computer won't print them. Putting the e in makes sense. Again, thanks.
>I think if I had the correct connections I could use it better. So, I go from Paris to?? then connect at ?? Six hours sounds really good.
Well, it is impossible to say without working through the bahn.de website. If you enter the schedule request from Paris to Noerdlingen, it will show you all the connections. The detailed plans are accessible if you just click on the ">" signs.
I don't know why you say it is not user-freidnly. Except that there are too many ads cluttering it, you get all the information you need.
You're right. It works very well, once you know to type in the e. Without the e, it's a lost cause. Thanks.
Ä= Alt 0196
Ö= Alt 0214
Ü= Alt 0220
Therefore - N, Alt 0246, r,d,l,i,n,g,e,n gets you Nördlingen
It's fully OK to use Noerdlingen if you don't have an ö around.
With the DB timetable.
But also e.g. in the internet
Thank you. Just goes to show that even at sixty you can learn something every day. I think I have it all sorted now.
