Brussels, Cologne, Amsterdam, London and more—whether you’re sampling the cuisine, exploring the culture, stealing a romantic weekend, or just taking care of business, our high-speed Thalys trains will whisk you to Europe’s great Northern cities in comfort and style. Trains leave Paris for Brussels every 30 minutes or so, and if you’re heading to the Ruhr Valley, you can choose from three daily return journeys linking Paris to Düsseldorf, Duisburg and Essen. Thalys also serves some 20 other European cities, including Marseille, Valence and other destinations in southern France.
