Pros

IconHigh comfort
Cons
IconSavings offers not always available
I took the IC from Dresden to Leipzig as part of a Deutsche Bahn promotion. The train was very comfortable and the price really reasonable. The wifi worked well and the journey was very pleasant. If you don't want to take the often overcrowded regional train, you can get a real bargain here.
Pros

IconBoard bistro available
IconTrain was clean so far
Cons
IconMany door malfunctions
IconDelay of 10 minutes
IconTrain was full
There was no need to change trains from Dresden to Leipzig, but the train was quite full, so many had to stand. There were also many door malfunctions on the train, so that boarding and alighting were delayed and there was a delay of 10 minutes. However, the staff had been friendly and the train had comfortable seats and adequate facilities. It had also been very clean and there was an on-board bistro.
Pros
IconOn time
Cons
IconNone
Had quite a pleasant ride. There was plenty of space where you could also store your luggage. The seats were very comfortable. The service was very friendly. You could reserve your seat on the train on the spot, but also online. In terms of price, it is also top. The cleanliness is also top.
Pros
IconFast
Cons
IconNone
My outward journey was already very good, but also on my return journey everything was as it should be, the train departed on time and arrived on time, the staff were friendly and helpful, the train and the toilets were clean, hygiene in the toilets also seemed good to me. As always, the seats were very comfortable and there was plenty of legroom. I also didn't have to change trains, which was very pleasant! Clear recommendations to travel more by train!

The journey from Dresden to Leipzig on the ICE was a very positive experience, after I had often had a negative impression of the route previously. When I was travelling by regional train, the experience with the ICE was completely different. The ticket prices were fine, the facilities on the ICE were first class, i.e. there was free wifi, all the toilets were functional, there was the described equipment at all seats such as power sockets etc. In addition, it was extremely pleasantly full and quiet on the train and the conductors did a very committed and communicative job. So I can definitely recommend this route with the ICE, it is extremely efficient, relaxed and comparatively cheap
Pros
IconSpeedy journey
Cons
IconAn excessive number of people
I took the train from Dresden to Leipzig today and was pleasantly surprised that it arrived without delay. As always, there were no facilities in class 2 - neither wifi nor power sockets, but I knew that beforehand. As always, the cleanliness was perfectly fine. I had no contact with the service - my ticket was not checked. The train arrived on time, so I can't complain. The only really big minus point I saw was the unbelievable number of passengers, some of whom had to sit in the aisle. The volume was correspondingly loud. But that was probably also due to the strike yesterday.
Pros
IconPeace and quiet
IconDuration
Cons
IconEquipment
The journey itself went well, arrived on time and I didn't have to change trains. The seats were okay, but could have been a bit more comfortable. I hadn't reserved a seat, but I still got a good one. What was noticeable was how quiet it was. The only negative point was that the wifi didn't work. The value for money was quite good and I would go again if the opportunity arose.
Pros
IconFriendly staff
IconAcceptable equipment
IconNo delays and no changes
IconCleanliness and hygiene
Cons
IconHard seats and no backrests
IconHigh capacity utilisation
The train from Dresden to Leipzig was very short, so there was a high occupancy rate throughout the journey. However, the volume on the train was pleasant. The staff were also friendly and even helped an elderly lady find a seat. I found the seats on the train a little hard and I missed the seat backs altogether. But there were power sockets and a stable internet connection. The train was clean and the toilet was largely hygienic. The train also arrived in Leipzig very punctually and I didn't have to change trains.
Pros
IconPunctuality
IconDuration
Cons
IconCleanliness
The journey from Dresden to Leipzig was a good experience. The specified times were adhered to and I arrived at my destination on time. My seat was reasonably comfortable, but unfortunately I didn't have enough legroom, although I have to say that I have very long legs. The toilets were not one hundred per cent clean, but still acceptable. In conclusion, it was a pleasant journey at a fair price.
