From Germany (Cologne/Dusseldorf) to St.Jean Pied de Port


New Member
Hello everyone.

I am trying to find the quickest way to get to St.Jean Pied de Port from Cologne,Germany.

I found one way...
fly from Dusseldorf or Frankfurt to Madrid by Iberia air.
Then, fly from Madrid to Pamplona and take bus to Roncesvalles and take taxi to St.Jean.
But it is quite complicated and I wonder there may be quicker way.

Please give me some advice about it.

Thank you very much in advance.

Best regards,

Thank you.

I found another route.
I can fly from Dusseldorf to Paris and take train from there to St.Jean via Bayonee.
But it will take all day and similar time to what I found via Madrid...

I could fly from Paris to Bayonne with Air France, but it is extremely expensive (over 500 euro...).

It would be easier to fly to somewhere in France and take the train from there.
