The journey from Osnabrück to Cologne was really pleasant. I used to travel this route by car, but with the comfortable seats, the on-board bistro and the good wifi, it's actually always worth taking the train. Only the punctuality is not optimal.

The journey in the ICE from Osnabrück to Cologne is very relaxed. There are power sockets at every seat in the train and there is free wifi access which also works well. You could reserve seats and the train was not overcrowded. The headrests are very comfortable and it is very easy to relax and enjoy the journey. The train left on time.
