My Dream Destination Trier ....looking for information !!

Dear Friends,

I wish visit Trier (Germany) from Brussels.

Can you please suggest most convenient route that should be the best in terms of money, time and comfort.

I am planning to go by train but I need information where to book, price of tickets, travel time.

Secondly I will also visit Salzburg and will catch a train from Vienna.

Apart from the Mozart Museum what are the other land marks in Salzburg that I must see.

I will reach Salzburg around 10 AM and stay there till 5-6 PM and will return to Vienna in the evening train.

I am passionate about, history, culture, traditions, literature, western classical music, painting theater and I wish to plunge into them to enjoy and learn to the content of my heart.

In Brussels and Vienna I will stay few days for study so what are the places I should visit in the two great cities of the world ?

If you have first hand experience please let me know along with detail tour preparations, food options.

Have a nice day

Best Regards

A bit far for a day trip.


> I am planning to go by train but I need information where to book

Not necessary. Seat reservations are not possible.

> price of tickets

EUR 55,20 one way

> travel time

4-4,5 hours

With the travel times involved Trier - Brussels and Salzburg - Vienna you could as well change your itinerary to Brussels - Trier - Salzburg - Vienna. For Trier to Salzburg you could check with the DB timetable

Trier is possible even as a day trip from Brussels if you start early. On weekends there are Benelux weekend passes (valid in Belgium, Netherlands and Luxembourg; price depends on distance) which are pretty cheap (ask at the train station). Go to Luxembourg (3h) and then from Lux to Trier (a bit less than an hour, return ticket Luxembourg -Trier costs EUR 9.60 ). Another possibility is train via Koln. If you choose to go visa Luxembourg, please, take into account that due to railway works on line 30, the train traffic between Wasserbillig and Trier-Hbf is replaced by a bus service from 02.05.2014 - 27.06.2014 in both directions (http://www.cfl.lu/en)
