Thanks to all the wonderful contributors that have wised me up on the great train system and how it works, I am needing just a bit more clarification on a train trip Frankfurt to Strasbourg on a Sunday. Arriving FRA airport at 6.50am.
I can see it is much cheaper to buy in advance online (DB website), booking to Kehl (thanks to all who explained that!).
The first suitable train seems to be at 9.53am, but it shows 2.5 hours of travel with 1 change ( where is the change ?) the train with 2 changes is showing a 2 hour trip ...am I misreading something? Why a shorter journey with 2 changes?
Also, does one buy the Kehl to Strasbourg leg of the journey on the train or at the airport train station?
Lastly, do I need to reserve a seat or is my ticket a seat guarantee?
Much obliged for any help.
