I like to travel on the Frankfurt to Erfurt route. The train is fast and very comfortable. On my day of travel, I had nice fellow passengers and great service staff. Unfortunately, the train was relatively full, as usual, so finding a seat was a bit more complicated. The wifi was also particularly slow on my day of travel. Nevertheless, I would choose the train between Frankfurt and Erfurt again any time.

The journey from Frankfurt to Erfurt with Deutsche Bahn went very well. The train was fairly priced and I liked the service on board. The speed on this route is phenomenal and better than a car journey. Comfort on board was good. Unfortunately, the train was a few minutes late and the wifi did not work well. The train was also quite busy. However, I would choose the connection again at any time.

The train journey itself was overall excellence. The train was modern and comfortable. The seats were comfortable and the journey went smoothly. The punctuality and clear information on departure times were commendable and helped to make me feel well taken care of for the journey boat, a beautiful view of the passing scenery which made the journey enjoyable. Train attendants were courteous and helpful and the option to buy drinks and snacks on board made the journey even more enjoyable. Unfortunately, however, there was one negative aspect, during the train journey the toilets were, dirty. This was unfortunate as cleanliness and hygiene are of great importance in public transport. It would have been desirable if the toilets had been better maintained and cleaned during the journey.
