Icongood coffee
Iconkind staff
This was my return journey in first class and it was great. While I was waiting at the station, the train arrived just in time. When I got on the train, it was very cosy inside, I felt safe. Some of the people were sleeping, others were looking at something on the internet. Then I ordered a coffee. It arrived without a long wait and tasted good, plus the staff were very nice.
Pro
IconVery comfortable
IconSeat reservation possible
Contra
IconOften late
IconExpensive
Travelling on the ICE is very comfortable, especially if you have reserved a seat. However, the cost of a ticket is quite high if you book at short notice. Added to this is the fact that delays are quite frequent, so in my opinion you have to weigh up carefully whether this high price is worth the comfort. The price-performance ratio is therefore questionable in my view.

That was my ride back. This trip was in first class and it was great. I had a companion and we went first class for a return journey, it was totally worth it. The wifi was good throughout, although many used it. We were able to charge our phones and laptops during the journey as we each had two power sockets in our comfy seats. We had plenty of choice on the menu, prices were also relatively good. It was very quiet, the atmosphere was great, the view from the window was also very nice. We were surrounded by very friendly staff. We can lovingly recommend this trip.

I travelled by train from Cologne to Stuttgart. The train arrived at the main station on time and it was easy to board. The service staff on board were very nice and helpful. The sanitary facilities were very clean and well maintained. I can't say anything negative about this connection except that the price was slightly higher. Otherwise, the wifi was also very usable and it was also a very quiet and pleasant ride.

In February 2023, I travelled with friends from Cologne main station to Stuttgart by ICE. We boarded the train on time and it left at the specified time. We had reserved seats, which I would advise anyone to do at rush hour, as the train was very full. The seats were very comfortable and offered enough space even for taller people like me. We were able to stow our suitcases above our seats. The staff on board were very helpful and the toilets were very hygienic. Overall, the train seemed very modern and clean. The internet in the ICE was very good and we could surf the net without any problems. Our train arrived in Stuttgart on time, which surprised me because we had stopped briefly in the meantime. Overall, the train journey was very pleasant and I would recommend this train connection to anyone looking for a quick journey from Cologne to Stuttgart.

I waited for my train and when it arrived on time, I got on. The floors and seats of the train were clean. It was quiet on the train, so the atmosphere was very good. Then I sat down in my comfortable seat and after a short time I ordered a fruit tea, which arrived without a long wait, was very fresh, tasty and reasonably priced. The staff were very friendly. I drank my tea and slept a little. I was very satisfied with this trip, so I give it five stars,

This was my return journey in first class, it was a great journey, which I can only recommend. I took my seat and sat down. The train smelled fresh. The surfaces looked very clean. I was hungry and ordered a hamburger. I waited a while and my order arrived fresh. Then I slept for a while as it was very quiet on the train. The atmosphere when I looked out of the window was very cool. The staff were very nice and helpful.

Firstly, I would like to mention the excellent punctuality of the train. I would also like to praise the relaxed atmosphere on the train. Unfortunately, the network connection was not so great, as it was neither particularly fast nor constant. Nevertheless, attention was paid to hygienic and clean toilets and seats. The staff were also very friendly. Overall, I give it a recommendation and 4 stars.

Contra
IconEverything went without a hitch
The train connection impressed with its outstanding punctuality, which is particularly important for business travellers. The fair price of the ticket makes the journey economically attractive. The cleanliness of the train and the availability of free wifi contributed to a pleasant travelling experience. The toilets were always well maintained, which ensured comfort on long journeys. Seating comfort was also above average, with ample legroom and comfortable seats. All in all, a train service worth recommending, which impresses above all with its punctuality and cleanliness.
