train from munich to paris reservation "Can only be checked on making a booking".

by shimin

Hi, I want to buy train tickets from munich to paris via the website, but when i reach the reservation and tickets page, under the the reservation request column, it says that for my first leg (berlin-mannheim) requests are feasible. For the 2nd leg (mannheim-paris) though, it says "Can only be checked on making a booking". What does this mean? That we can't guarantee a seat but we'll definitely be able to get on board?

I hope someone will be able to help with this. I can't seem to find anything using google. Thank you.

Re: train from munich to paris reservation "Can only be checked on making a booking".

by Turtleshell

This refers to the part where you'll be on a French TGV where seat reservation is required. Hence, the field for a seat reservation can only be "checked".

A seat will be guaranteed on the TGV since reservation is mandatory.

On the first leg there is no guarantee for a seat unless you place a reservation for this part as well. However, contrary to the TGV, you'll be able to board the ICE or IC (whatever you picked) without seat reservation, no matter how crowded the train.

Hi, I just bought the ticket and realised that even though there was nothing in the process asking for seats and so on, there are seat numbers printed on the tickets! Not consecutive numbers though, so maybe they aren't together. Thanks for the quick reply!

Prüfung erst bei Buchung möglich
Can only be checked on making a booking

Heck, to this non-native German speaker, the German doesn't make much more sense than the English translation ;-), although Turtleshell's explanation is obviously correct.

But a better translation would have been, "Only checking is possible with booking", in the sense of "when booking, only checking (for a reservation) is possible"...or, in American, "when you book, this field must be checked!!!"

Yow! Gib mir noch einmal Bier!!!

The reason behind the message is that the DB system can only find out about available seats on the TGV once it makes an actual booking on the French railways' system.

The the OP: That the seat numbers aren't consecutive doesn't mean that you don't sit together. Seats aren't numbered that way :-) Which seat/car numbers do you have?

Travel Tips for Munich

visit Marienplatz and have a...

by Sile

visit Marienplatz and have a good look at the Neues Rathaus (doesn't look like a new townhall, but it is definitely newer than the old one!). The food! Some great restaurants can be found in Munich - personal favourites here include Cafe Ignatz for vegetarian food in Schwabing, Steinheil on Steinheilstr. for the best value local meals and the Pakistani place on Barerstr. near the Pinakothek.

A funny company trip

by sabsi

Every year my company goes on a trip to a place where one of our team members is from. This year we spent a weekend in and around Munich. We went to Kloster Andechs, went on a boat trip on Ammersee, enjoyed the local nightlife and the local breakfasts and finally everyone but me climbed the roof of the Olympic stadium. Of course we didn't have time enough to see everything so I was happy that I was there two days earlier than the others which left Munich without having been to Englischer Garten ;-)

The Munich Lion(s)

by flyingscot4

The lion is the symbol of Munich. They are found everywhere, from statues and monuments to brightly colored pieces in the pedestrian zone. One of the most prominent monuments in Munich is the Siegestor (Victory Gate), which is based on the Arch of Constantine in Rome. The monument was built in the mid nineteenth century in celebration of Bavaria's role in the Wars of Liberation, 1813 - 1815. The chariot and lion sculpture on the top was created by Martin von Wagner.

The lions can be found everywhere in Munich and it is obvious that the city is quite proud of its association with the lion.

Sodom & Gomorrah on Flaucher :-)

by globetrott

Bavaria is very strict, when it comes to morality...

...BUT since plenty of years you may see people spending their lunch-break in " Englischer Garten " or at " Flaucher " sunbathing topless or with even less than that.
Flaucher is close to the camping-site in Thalkirchen, and you will pass by there, when you go cycling along the river Isar...

Well, most of the people you may see there simply cannot compare with the beauty I show on my picture....
... I found her in Herrenchiemsee, close to the castle.

bloody freezing

by stevehallam

When we finally got into the mountains we jumped in the first decent size lake we came to. It was bloody freezing. If anyone recognises the lake - I'd love to know its name. It was on our trip from Munich to Innsbruck (we never got as far as Innsbruk)
