TGV EST: Paris - Luxembourg 2h05
Since June 10th 2007 the TGV (high speed train) replaces the express trains between Paris and Luxemburg. The journey between the two capital cities is now reduced to two hours and five minutes, instead of over four full hours before. This gain of time must add to the comfort and the easiness of the train traffic between both cities. Four round trips a day will take passengers from Paris (Gare de l'Est) to Luxemburg or vice versa.
