Hi there -
We plan to take a train from Colmar to either Lucerne or Zurich in early June (still not sure where). I looked at the TGV train schedule from Colmar station to both cities (change train in Basel), is TGV the only option or there are alternatives? 2-2.5 hour ride is fine with us but prefer not longer than that. I think I was a bit confused when I see another schedule on the swiss rail website. I wasn't sure if it's actually the same train/schedule or it's a different train. This is my very first time traveling to both France and Swiss so please bear with me!
Also, do I need to pre-book the tickets (2) right now (prices go up, no seat)? Although, I have the departure time in mind but just in case plan changes.
Lastly, is this ride a scenic route (to either Lucerne or Zurich)? I plan to leave Colmar after 5pm but could leave earlier if the ride is pretty. We will have about 7-8 hours to spend in Colmar (came from Strasbourg in the morning), or I should enjoy Colmar until end of day?
Thanks so much!
