Change trains in: Frankfurt (Main)

This routing via Frankfurt (Main) isn't the fastest option for a daytime journey by train from Paris to Wien/Vienna.

It isn't generally the cheapest either, so here's why we recommend travelling this way:

(i) It's the fastest option which only has 1 x change of train

(ii) The connecting time between trains at Frankfurt (Main) is more than an hour, so making the transfer on to Wien/Vienna is virtually guaranteed.

(iii) The faster/cheaper journey options with more than one change of train all have connecting times between trains of less than 15 mins.

Making those connections on that alternative routing is a gamble - not financially, but it terms of making the journey much more stressful.

(iv) Frankfurt (Main) is an exceptionally easy station at which to change trains.
