We are travelling in May this year (our first time by train) from Colgne to Strasbourg and need to change trains at Mannheim. We arrive from Cologne via ICE 611 at 17:23 and depart Mannheim to Strasbourg at 17:40 on TGV 9560. We will be traveling with luggage (my wife doesn't travel light) and I an wondering if anyone can shed some light on what to expect (ie ability to easily transfer our luggage and how far apart the respective platforms might be). Is the time frame 17 minutes sufficient transfer time?
Thanks for your help!
