Overcrowded trains to Germany and beyond

Locating your seat in the train

When travelling with Thalys we can provide the following information so that you will easily find your seat.

Train ticket

Your carriage and seat number are printed on your ticket and these correspond to the numbers on the platform and in the train.

(Dynamic) information panels

With the help of dynamic information panels on the platform and train set-up posters you can determine where the best place to wait is so that you can easily board the train when it arrives. It sometimes occurs that the train enters the station in the reversed order but you will be informed of this via the station’s broadcast messaging system.
