Pros
IconHeaters were on
It was a fantastic journey: I had great wifi and sockets at my comfy seat, it was very quiet on the train and catering was there (first aid kit), the staff were nice and the service was fast, what surprised me the most was that the toilets were very well maintained and smelled very good. I also thought it was great that the heaters were on as it was very cold at the time. I can definitely recommend it, as my ticket was very cheap.
Pros
IconCleanliness
The first thing I want to mention is that the train was very clean and hygienic. My wifi was very strong and I had a socket at my seat. My train ticket was cheap and the journey was pleasant. The food was delicious and my drink was cold. I can pass it on because of the cheap price. Also, this has a baby changing station that can be used by people who have a baby. The toilets were very clean and hygienic, so I can recommend it.
Pros
IconOn time
IconEnvironmentally friendly
IconNice staff
Cons
IconExpensive
IconStressed staff
I took the ICE from Düsseldorf to Berlin. The journey was very pleasant in itself. And above all, it was finally on time. Which is a rarity with Deutsche Bahn. The journey takes about 4:50 hours. The board staff was very friendly and the bistro was also full this time. So I could eat a delicious, but very expensive cake. The toilets were generally okay. What is always positive is that there are sockets to charge your smartphone or laptop. So you can take a little work with you. I have seen worse. On the whole, I am quite satisfied with the journey. However, Deutsche Bahn really needs to think about the prices.
Pros
IconOn time
Cons
Icontoo full
The Flixtrain had power sockets and wifi, but unfortunately it didn't work very well. The train was on time and there were no technical difficulties and everything on the train was clean, but we had a seat reservation that was simply cancelled with an email a few hours before our departure. The reason for this was a missing carriage and we were allocated new seats, however we had to sit backwards, which my travel partner has problems with, so this was a big minus point for us. It was also just overcrowded and a bit stuffy. However, as compensation we received the price of the seat reservation in the form of a Flixtrain/bus voucher.
Pros
Iconpunctual departure
Icongood wifi
Cons
Iconpretty full
We travelled from Düsseldorf main station to Berlin by ICE. As we were aware that we were travelling at Christmas time, we luckily booked extra seats beforehand. Although the train was quite full, we were able to get to our seats, which were equipped with power sockets, and sit down. The wifi on the train was surprisingly stable over the journey and the staff were also very nice and friendly. In fact, we left on time and arrived in Berlin on time, despite the overcrowded train and the crowded station. We didn't use the bistro, but it was open. The toilets were very clean and we felt comfortable during the journey. If train travel was always like this, I would do it more often!
Pros
Icongreat service
This was my return journey and was just as good as the outward journey. The service was great and cheap. My wife totally enjoyed the ride too. I felt comfortable using the toilets. I can recommend it, it was so cheap. I had wifi on the train my seat was comfortable and it was quiet on the train. The staff were very friendly. We can only recommend it.

IconPunctuality
That was my return journey, which was really super. The heaters were on and I had a reclining seat and even had curtains on my seat, which was really great.

My ticket was also very cheap. Great ride!

This was my return journey in second class. The train was very punctual, but unfortunately it was very dirty on the train. I felt uncomfortable while using the toilet.
