I travelled from Cologne to Nuremberg with my wife, doing city trips and having a lot of fun, this time we went to Nuremberg to the Christmas market. It was an exhausting journey lasting several hours. However, the train was super clean, punctual and the sanitary facilities were well maintained. Unfortunately, changing trains was a bit annoying, but otherwise everything was great so far. The wifi worked excellently. The price is justified in my opinion

IconPunctuality
The journey was generally good, the only negative point was that the train was late, as it often is. Luckily it was only ten minutes, which wasn't too bad, but still annoying. Otherwise, the train was very well equipped, with wifi and power sockets. The comfort was definitely there at the seat as well. The toilets were okay, but have room for improvement. The staff were quite nice.
