You should arrive at the train station at least 30 minutes prior to your departure. This will allow enough time to clear the station security and catch your train.

Furthermore, if it’s a large train station and you need to validate your rail pass, you should arrive earlier to ensure that you get where you need to go and that your Railpass is validated in time.

It is always best to give yourself ample time rather than rushing, especially in a new environment.
