Arrival from France

Map – Arrival from France

French flair and Swiss quality are just three hours apart. 20 “TGV Lyria” trains travel between Paris and Switzerland each day. There are direct connections to Zurich, Basel, Geneva, Lausanne and Berne.

Thanks to the three comfort classes Standard, Standard First and Business First, TGV Lyria offers the perfect option for every need – whether with all-inclusive services such as a warm 3-course-menu at the seat or a downscaled service at a more affordable price. Good to know: Seat reservation is required and is included in the fare. Thus, all is set for a comfortable arrival. In no more than three to four hours, passengers reach their desired destination in Switzerland.
