Timetable and prices 2017

The CFTR organizes train circulations only on Week End and public holidays, from Whitsun to end of september. The following table summarizes the circulation dates.

Depending on the number of tourists, it is possible to vary the train composition but:

- the number of seat is limited to250 because of the boat.

- because there are usually less german tourists, it is possible (if the number of 250 is exceeded) to board on the german side. The meeting point ist here (GPS: N 48.026062, E 7.579176)

In august, tourists are advised to come at 2 p.m. If there are no available places anymore, they will be have enough time to board on the german side.

- buying a ticket doesn't mean that a seating position is available.

- people who bought their tickets at the tourist office of Colmar and want to exchange them will be served at first.
