München / Munich to London by train

There are two optimum route options for a journey by train from Munich/München to London:

  1. Make two transfers between trains and travel via Bruxelles, thereby avoiding having to make a transfer between stations in Paris.
    On this routing the optimum end-to-end journey involves having to make the connection between trains in Koln/Cologne.

  2. Travelling via Paris (not available on Saturdays) on the direct train from München to the Gare de l'Est, then heading to the Gare du Nord in order to take the Eurostar on to London.

Or if you will be departing on Monday, Thursday and Saturday, you can take the relatively new Nightjet service to the Gare de l'Est and head over Gare du Nord for the Eurostar
