Train from FRA to Paris due to strike

My husband and I are booked on a Lufthansa flight from Chicago (ORD) to FRA Wednesday, Sept 5. From FRA we are booked to fly to Paris (CDG). The flight attendents have called a strike for Tuesday but no details announced. If we get to FRA as scheduled, how would we book a train to Paris if needed from FRA? How do you get to the train station from the airport? Thank you

Frankfurt Airport has its own train station. Normal route is Frankfurt Airport - Mannheim - Paris Est. Also Frankfurt Airport - Karlsruhe (- Strasbourg) - Paris Est is an option. The trains to Paris need however all compulsory reservation. The reservation is included in the ticket price. You can buy / get your reservation at the DB travel centre (counter) at the airport. But of course it can happen that the next train(s) is (are) already completely booked. Esp. under these circumstances. And on this route there is technically no chance to increase the capacity on short notice.

Don't know how this is ticket wise handled. For domestic German flights with Lufthansa you can always go to a DB counter and exchange your flight ticket into a train ticket. You'll have to ask Lufthansa on this.

Thank you for the reply. Having a train station in the airport is very convenient. We don't have that luxury in Chicago. Good to know if we need it.
