Travel quickly to France by train

With TGV (Train à Grande Vitesse, the French high-speed train) you can travel quickly to your favourite destinations in France. Sit back in your comfortable chair while you travel at 320 kilometres an hour! Another plus: you do not need to check-in your luggage or be at the station hours in advance. You therefore no longer need to travel by plane for a speedy trip!

The five most important TGV railway lines will rapidly bring you to all corners of France:

Changing trains in Brussels or Paris

For cities in the southeast of France, like Marseille and Montpellier, you can travel to Brussels Zuid(Midi) with Thalys or with Intercity Brussels. In Brussels you can catch a connecting TGV train so that you don’t have to pass through, but around, Paris.
To travel with TGV to other destinations in France, like Bordeaux, Toulouse and Straatsburg, you’ll first need to travel to Paris Nord with Thalys.

Travel in comfort with TGV

From within the light, cheerful compartments, designed by French designer Christain Lacroix, you will see the French country side fly past while you enjoy the optimal comfort of the spacious seats with headrest, folding table, footrest, adjustable backrest and personal nightlight!
