Why can't I book my overnight train when departure date is within 6months?

I am trying to book an overnight train from Paris to Berlin on 02/07/2016 but it will not allow me to do so even though the departure date is within 6 months.

Hello Emily,

Thanks for the question.

For your travel from Paris to Berlin, there are no night trains. There are day trains available and the schedules for the sector you are trying to book open 3 months in advance to the travel date. Request you to try booking in the 1st week of April.

You can book and travel as follows:

- Paris to Berlin via Mannheim - France Germany High Speed and ICE trains.

In order to book tickets, please visit our website

You would need to feed in the Departure city and the Arrival city along with the travel date and preferred time & the number of passengers (Senior, adults, youth and children), and then click on “search tickets”. Once you do so, you would find the schedules along with the fares. You need to select the fare which is preferable to you and then add it to Cart. Once added, you need to mention the names of the passengers to make the payment on the next page.

Hope this helps!!!

Best Regards,
