Pros
Iconclean train
Cons
IconThe train was late.
This was my outward journey in 2nd class. There was one negative thing, and that was that the train was late, but that was the only thing I didn't like. It wasn't that bad, as it was delayed by a few minutes, but there were a lot more good things. What I liked was that it was very hygienic and clean on the train. The seats were disinfected and the floor was very clean. The windows were also very clean. The wifi was also OK. I can pass on the trip as there was only one small thing that I didn't like and that was the delay. Otherwise, it was a great ride.
Pros
Iconthe observance of hygiene
The journey from Düsseldorf to Munich. The staff were very nice and friendly and very attentive to hygiene. The seats were very comfortable and I had plenty of room for my suitcase. There was also a lot of delicious food and I liked that some of it was vegan. I also really liked it (the food). The wifi was also very good and I had a socket at my seat. The trip deserved 5 out of 5 stars because my ticket was relatively cheap. Besides, it was my outward journey.
Pros
Iconvery nice staff
That was my outward journey and I can really rate it with 5 stars, because I liked everything. What I liked most was that the staff were very nice, respectively I also liked the service because it wasn't that expensive and it was delivered quickly, my food was also delicious. It was very comfortable because I had a lot of space. The toilets were also very clean. I am very happy to recommend the trip and rate it with 5 stars.
Pros
IconGreat service
IconGood food
IconClean toilets
Cons
IconExpensive catering
IconPunctuality
This train ride was the first train ride that went great for me. The staff were very competent and friendly. The food was expensive, but it was delicious and worth it in my opinion. Punctuality and Deutsche Bahn are something else, they could still work on that, but there was wifi and the toilets were clean. Reserving seats was very easy and the seating comfort was sufficient. I didn't have to change trains, as I travelled by ICE. It's rare to experience a journey like this with Deutsche Bahn.
Pros
IconThere were LEDs
The outward journey to Düsseldorf was a lot of fun because the staff were very nice and friendly. The internet was as good as it gets and worked great. I had a window where the view was great. My ticket was also cheap and I got much more than I expected. I was also catered for, for example with a plaster. The amazing thing was that there were LEDs and it looked very nice. I can happily recommend the trip to others, as it was really great and inexpensive. I would also like to mention the punctuality of the train. Great ride!
Pros
IconThe food was very tasty
On the way there, I noticed that they donate money to needy children. That moved me to tears. The food was also very tasty. I was happy to see that there was also a vegan food menu. There was also plenty of space to sleep. I would gladly recommend the whole thing to others and rate it 5 out of five stars, as the trip impressed me very much. I also loved that there was air conditioning which ensured that I was warm and also cold, depending on my choice. I also liked that a lot of attention was paid to hygiene (disinfectants and such). In addition, the price-performance ratio was very good, but since my ticket was very cheap and I got a lot back. My train was also punctual and I had multiple electricity access at my seat. The volume on the train was good or very pleasant. If you needed food, you got it. In general, it was a "perfect" journey, so to speak.
Pros
IconSympathy of the employees
Cons
IconTrain was too late
That was my outward journey. The train was unfortunately late, but that's the only thing I didn't like. I had felt comfortable using the toilets. The toilet paper was also of good quality. The service was also very fast. The staff were entertaining and funny respectively. My ticket was cheap and the service was great. Definitely recommendable.
Pros
Iconpunctual
Cons
Icontoo full
I started my journey to Munich on Friday evening. It's clear that more people generally take trains on Friday nights than usual, but it was so crowded that even the staff had a little trouble with it. Fortunately, the staff didn't get rattled, remained friendly and the train arrived on time. Luckily, since I had a seat reservation, I didn't have to stand either. The toilets were okay, but could be cleaner. However, this was probably due to the crowded train. For this reason, the internet was not the best either, but you could use it for web browsing, but not for movies. The power sockets work well and I was able to charge my mobile phone for the long journey. It was a bit noisy on the train, but seats are comfortable as always.
Pros
IconVery pleasant atmosphere
As you can see from the picture, this was my outward journey. It took a long time, but it didn't feel that long because the staff were very entertaining. Besides, the staff were also very funny and nice. I had felt comfortable using the toilets as they were very clean. I can't think of any negative things, so I can only recommend it. Besides, my ticket was cheap.
Pros
Icongreat design in the toilets
That was my outward journey and it was great. I rode alone, but didn't feel alone as I chatted with the other passengers and with the nice staff. Also, the journey took 5 hours but didn't feel that long as I had fun while playing board games with the staff and passengers, which was very nice of everyone. I had good wifi and a power socket at my seat. My ticket was very cheap. The ride was highly recommended. The kicker was that the toilets had a super design. Totally enjoyable ride where I had fun.
Pros
IconCleanliness
Cons
IconPunctuality
The only thing I have to criticise is that the train was not on time. Otherwise, I can only praise the journey to Munich. The perfect cleanliness and hygiene stood out in particular. As usual, the network connection was good. I set off in the late afternoon and arrived a little late at around 11.00 pm. I give the train journey a full 5 stars overall and recommend it to others.
Pros
IconPrice
Cons
IconNone
I'm travelling more and more by train, mainly for work, and I have to say that I prefer it to driving. The vast majority of trains arrive on time, like this one, and they are also clean and tidy. The staff are usually friendly and helpful. But also the journey time, in my opinion, is fast and often faster than travelling by car. What I personally also like about travelling by train is the view. But what convinces me most is the price
Pros
IconFast
Cons
IconToilets
I was very surprised at how quick the journey was as I had thought it would take much longer, but this was not the case. I had a comfortable, clean seat with a small table. The only thing that wasn't so clean were the toilets, but it wasn't dramatic. The train was equipped with working wifi and power sockets. I think the value for money is good, especially when you consider how much the journey would have cost by car.

Cons
IconPrice a little too high but within reason
In contrast to the previous journey, this journey on the ICE was extremely pleasant and, to my surprise, there were no problems whatsoever. The train was empty, quiet, pleasantly air-conditioned and I was able to enjoy the usual facilities and comfort of the ICE. On this journey, the staff were also on good terms with the passengers and were extremely helpful and courteous. All in all, this journey was once again a very positive and pleasant experience with the ICE and Deutsche Bahn. I was able to enjoy the journey even without a seat reservation and although the price was not exactly low, it was worth it in retrospect.
Pros
IconComfort
Cons
IconPunctuality
The journey itself was great, everything was clean including the sanitary facilities, the seats were comfortable and there was working wifi. The journey wasn't too long either. However, the punctuality of the trains could still be worked on, as you either don't get the next one due to delays or have to wait ages for your train, which is even more annoying with a lot of luggage. But the journey itself was good.
