Trains to Montpellier Find train times and tickets

Montpellier is a city with a real buzz, and it is the perfect destination to reach by train. Less than 3 hrs 30 mins from Paris by fast train, and served by many other high-speed routes, Montpellier is good for a city break or longer stay. Sooner or later, most devotees of French rail travel find themselves making a stopover in Montpellier.

The historic city centre is just a stone's throw from the main station - which is called Montpellier Saint-Roch. The listings of train departures from Saint-Roch are in themselves an invitation to adventure. You'll find direct services to Barcelona or Brussels, Metz or Madrid. Take your pick. Marseille and Avignon are both just a short hop away. There are Intercités running east to Cannes, Antibes and Nice, west to Carcassonne, Toulouse and Bordeaux.

Sunny Montpellier is one of France's fastest growing cities. It's stylish, fast-paced and during term time packed with students who now comprise about a quarter of the city's population of 275,000. There are a number of showpiece new developments, not least a new out-of-town railway station which was initially due to open in 2018, though now delayed amid a squabble as to how many trains will actually serve the new station. For now, at least, Montpellier Saint-Roch is secure in its position as the major rail hub for the city.
