Timetable and prices for 2021

Important information: timetable is currently not definitely known. In every case, we kindly invite our dear visitors to take following conditions into account:

1. The number of places in the train and the boat are limited because of "social distancing".

2. Wearing a mask is mandatory for every person of 11 years and more, from begininng to the very end of the excursion.

3. Our association can not provide any mask and won't accept any visitor who can't bring its own mask (especially in case of omission). We ask for your understanding!

4. Hands must be disinfected before boarding the train or the boat.

5. As already practiced in public transportation, the boarding takes place at one end of the coach and exit at the other.

6. The tickets "combo train+boat" are sold through our website. At the moment, it's not possible to book a ticket for the train alone, that's to say without the combination with the boat trip.

7. The visitor who comes to the railstation can eventually buy a ticket but only if there are places left.

8. Tickets now won't be sold anymore from the tourist offices from Colmar & Neuf-Brisach.

9. It's possible now to offer cold drinks on board but these can't be consumed in the dining car.

10. We are at the moment not allowed to organize the sightseeing of the railway station. Sorry for this inconvenience.

The CFTR organizes train circulations only on Week End and public holidays, from Whitsun to end of september. On july the 14. and august the 15th too. The following table summarizes the circulation dates.

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

- the maximum number of tourists is limited to 250 because of the boat capacity. Because of Covid 19, this number is further reduced.

- boarding takes place at the trainstation of Volgelsheim here

- Because there are usually less german tourists, it is possible (if the number of 250 vsitors is exceeded at the train station) to board on the german side. The meeting point is the landing place of the BFS here (GPS: N 48.026062, E 7.579176) and the departure time is 3 p.m..

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

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

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

To make sure that a ticket is available on the desired day, we kindly recommend to use our website to book online.
