Pros

Cons
IconTrain somewhat unpunctual
I travelled from Berlin to Cologne second class by IC. I had to change trains once in Hanover. Dortmund was on the route, so I can rate the journey. The first train was late, but I got my connecting train in Hanover. The journey between Hanover and Cologne turned out to be very pleasant, as the train was absolutely not full. Both trains were neat and clean in appearance. The Deutsche Bahn staff were friendly and accommodating. The board bistros of both trains were open and passengers were served with delicious coffee and snacks.

In July 2022, I took a train journey from Berlin to Dortmund with Deutsche Bahn. First of all, I would like to list some positive aspects. The price was very satisfactory compared to many other options to get to Dortmund. Also, the staff on the train were very friendly. They checked the tickets quickly and were always very friendly and polite to their passengers. In addition, the toilets were clean and hygienic. So I could find disinfectant or wipes. The Corona rules were also well observed. The volume was reasonable. However, the seats were dirty. I saw coffee stains and so I didn't really want to sit on the seats. Also, the wifi was not excellent as my phone could not connect to the internet at all. Overall, however, a satisfactory train journey.

The train was very clean and freshly cleaned, which also applied to the toilets. The train left on time and we also arrived at our destination on time. In general, I felt very comfortable on the train and the legroom at the seat was absolutely sufficient. The wifi worked without any problems the whole time and I was even able to stream series on it. Thumbs up for a very pleasant train journey.

Unfortunately, my journey from Berlin to Dortmund did not go well. The journey itself was very stressful, as we had to deal with very long delays due to bad weather... Finding connections was not exactly easy either. There was no comfort to speak of here. The only positive thing about the journey was the cleanliness of the train.

I recently took the ICE from Berlin Hauptbahnhof to Dortmund Hauptbahnhof. The journey was super comfortable (especially because of the comfortable seats). Service was very good and the cleanliness in the ICE was great! The journey itself also went smoothly, no delays! Only the price is a bit too high in my opinion! (But that is also the only weakness).
