Pro
IconVery empathetic passengers
Contra
IconThe train was late.
It was a great ride. I went in the afternoon and went with my wife and friends. The train looked and was very modern. We had fun with the other people on the train who were very empathetic and willing to communicate with strangers, so the volume on the train was very pleasant. The trip is highly recommended. Then I want to mention that the toilets were very modern. Finally, the only negative thing I want to mention is that the train was late, but I don't mind that as there were so many more positives.
Pro
IconSeat window
It was a great ride. I had access to wifi and a power outlet at my seat. My seat was very comfortable and the train was very quiet. If you needed food, you were able to get it. The staff were very friendly and the service was great. From all the arguments, I can lovingly recommend it. Moreover, the price-performance ratio was great!
Pro
IconThe train was on time
IconVery beautiful from the inside
IconClean toilet
IconNice staff
Contra
IconFood was cold
The train arrived very punctually, which made me very happy. In addition, every seat had 2 sockets and you could dial into the free wifi, perfect. In addition, the toilet was very clean and the price of 23 euros was very reasonable. However, the on-board bistro was very full and the food I ordered was cold again after a short time. But all in all, I would repeat the trip.
Pro
IconSimply ride
Contra
IconDelays
I bought tickets for myself and my friend from Berlin to Hamburg to visit my parents on New Year's Eve. I bought the tickets at the information desk. The price was actually quite reasonable. Since we didn't have to change trains, that was the best part of the trip. With the ICE we were there in 2 hours. Unfortunately, we arrived later than expected, but the train ride was very pleasant. I would like to travel again with the ICE.
Pro
Iconvery clean
My trip was very good because the internet was very hygienic and spacious without interruption, but the fear of pandemic is very risky, even the toilets were hygienic in my opinion, if everything is clean, the trip is nice and to recommend. What I also found very cool is that the staff were very humorous and all the people had their masks on. There were also baby changing stations and the toilets were very clean and I felt comfortable using them.
Pro
IconFast train connection for 300km (2 hours)
Contra
Icon57 min delay
IconVery crowded
I drive this route every fortnight and normally we are no more than 10 minutes late. But this time we had 57 minutes. But you only get some money back after 60 minutes. Another negative thing I noticed was that the toilets were very disgusting. And the wifi wasn't very good either, but that's almost never the case in trains.
Pro
Iconrapid travel
My wifi was great and I had a power socket at my seat. It was very quiet on the train and my seat was very comfortable. The heaters worked great and I had a window at my table. The staff were very nice. The train was on time and great. I can recommend it to everyone as it was very cheap.
Pro
IconPlenty of free seats
IconRespect the obligation to wear a mask on the train
IconPleasant temperature in the train
IconPunctuality
Contra
IconSocket with loose contact
All in all, it was a very pleasant train ride, especially because of the temperature, as it was very cold outside that day. In the train itself it was pleasantly warm, so you didn't need a jacket. It should also be emphasised that the train staff pointed out to guests who were not wearing masks that masks were compulsory. Departure and arrival were on time, otherwise I have no further complaints, except that the socket unfortunately had a loose contact, which meant that we were unable to charge our smartphones. That's how you like to travel by train.
Pro
IconRide duration is fast
IconCleanliness
IconNo change
Contra
IconPossible delays
Travelling from Berlin to Hamburg is the ideal way to get to Hamburg in a pleasant atmosphere. In the modern and comfortable trains, you sit comfortably and enjoy the journey to Hamburg. Was with me on time and seat reservation. Also the staff of the train and served the drinks and food to the seat. The train journey took about 4 hours. There was also wifi in the carriage, but it was often poor.
Pro
IconFast connection
Contra
IconVery full
The ICE connection of the train was top as always. Friendly staff, the reserved table / seat for 4 with colleagues for the journey was also free and very practical to work and talk. The city ticket in Hamburg was also very practical, I could make good use of it and didn't have to organise a local transport ticket.
Pro

Contra
IconVolume
IconWIFI
IconCleanliness
We spent the train journey from Berlin to Hamburg in the on-board restaurant, where we had lunch. It was very good. We couldn't stand it in the train compartment because it was very noisy with other passengers, which was very annoying. Fortunately, the speed of the ICE meant we were back in Hamburg quickly. The staff on the train were very friendly and helpful. One negative thing to mention is the very poor wifi on the train.
Pro
IconFast journey
IconGood board restaurant
IconFriendly staff
Contra
IconOver-utilised train
IconUnclean toilets
IconBroken seats
On my journey from Berlin to Hamburg, the facilities were great, I had plenty of power sockets around me and good wifi too. The comfort was okay, except that I had a broken seat that was ripped open at the edge. But the volume was great. The service was very good, especially the staff were very nice and friendly. The train itself was clean, except for the toilets. The journey time was fantastic, except that we were a few minutes late. The price was quite good.
Pro
IconPunctual
IconClean
IconNice staff
Contra
IconLight too bright (night journey)
The journey went smoothly and on time. As always, the staff were very friendly and helpful. The information on the train was clear and concise. The whole train was very clean. However, the toilets could have been a bit more hygienic. I didn't have to change trains and travelled on the ICE for about 110 minutes. There were enough free seats, wifi and working sockets. The seats were also very comfortable. Unfortunately, the light was a little bright. This is annoying when travelling by ICE at night.
Pro
IconClean
IconPunctual departure
Contra
IconDefective train
The journey back from Berlin to Hamburg went smoothly for the first hour. A defective suit was then discovered, which could not be repaired. The journey was continued at reduced speed after a delay of 1 hour. We have applied for compensation.
Pro
IconPunctual
Contra
IconDirty
The journey was a wonderful experience. It was also great that the train arrived on time. Fortunately, I was also able to wifi my mobile phone on the train and had good wifi. Unfortunately, the seats were a bit dirty and the people were noisy, but the staff were very friendly. Otherwise, the journey was well worth it for the price.
