Austria

Austria has one of Europe's most reliable and ambitious train companies: The ÖBB ("Österreichische Bundesbahnen") is a driving force in the revival of a trans-European railway network. Unfortunately (and despite a wide availability of organic products througout the country) their restaurant cars do not offer organic food.

France: Paris

Paris is so easily accessible by a network of highly comfortable high-velocity trains, the TGV, both from within France as well as from its neighbouring countries that any other means of long distance transport is simply out of scope.

The car restaurant on bord of the TGV offers a number of organic items, all clearly marked "BIO" on the menu, among others a vegetarian salad, plain yogurt, cranberry biscuits, almond-popped rice chips, potato chips, lemonade, apple juice and tea. At the so-called bar you may also purchase single tickets for the Paris underground, but unfortunately not the "Paris Visite" day (and multiple day) flatrate tickets for the Paris public transport which I strongly recommend as the Paris metro will easily and comfortably take you here and there.

Germany

The most comfortable and environment-friendly way to travel Germany is without doubt by train: According to Deutsche Bahn all their long-distance trains (ICEs, ICs and the German-driven ECs) are powered by renewable energies, and all destinations listed below can be reached by these trains directly or (as in the case of Heidelberg) by urban trains from the next ICE hub.

ICE and IC trains usually come with a restaurant car offering a number of organic items on the menu so that you (as of September, 2022) can have vegan organic porridge for breakfast, three main courses (Bratwurst sausage with mashed potato and celeriac, a vegetable focacchia and a pumpkin soup), a variety of teas, lemonade (of the "Vio" brand), and "Spaten Helles" beer as well as vegan potato chips and a coconut chocolate bar. The coffee is fairly traded, yet not organic, and none of the vegan meals is organic. When you came with your own mug to buy hot drinks you had been entitled to a 20 cents discount for a while, but I don't know whether this is still applicable. However, in summer 2022 it was advisable to not rely on the restaurant cars as they often were broken or sold out for organic food.
