Forbach Train Stations and Maps

Main train stations and a country view rail map

Introduction

Located almost on the German border in eastern France, Forbach was formerly a major border and therefore customs crossing point for both road and rail users. As a result, transport connections are good, with the town lying on the A320 motorway between Metz on the French side, and Saarbruecken on the German side of the border.

High-speed TGV and ICE services running between Paris Gare de l'Est (1hr40m) and Frankfurt (2hrs) now stop in Forbach.


The closest airport is Saarbruecken, which is just 16km away and has some domestic and international flights. For a more comprehensive flight schedule, Luxembourg City airport is still relatively close at 70km away.
