Change trains in: Koln/Cologne and Bruxelles/Brussels

When looking up a Berlin to London train journey, it's likely that you will also see options for travelling an alternative route via Mannheim or Frankfurt and Paris - particularly on Saturdays.

The key advantage of taking this route via Bruxelles is that it avoids the need to make a transfer between stations in Paris.

On this journey option the connecting time in Bruxelles-Midi/Zuid station between the arrival of the ICE train and departure of the Eurostar trains will be around 1hr 10 mins - 1hr 20 mins.

So this should allow sufficient time to check-in for the Eurostar even if the ICE train from Koln/Cologne arrives in Bruxelles/Brussels more than 45 mins late.

This guide has more information re: making the connection into the Eurostar train at Bruxellles-Midi station.

The preceding connection at Koln Hbf:

The connecting time between trains at Koln Hbf station will be around 34 mins and the ICE from Berlin very rarely arrives more than 30 mins late, so making that connection shouldn't be a problem.

However, this connection is not guaranteed!

See the 'Ticket Information' below for more information re: the scenarios in which the ICE does arrive too late in Koln to make the booked connection.
