Pros
IconModern trains
IconGood equipment
IconClean
Cons
IconChangeover
The train journey from Frankfurt to Amsterdam was by and large satisfactory. It was necessary to change trains once in Cologne, which delayed the journey somewhat. However, this is all that was negative. Otherwise, it can be said that the trains were in good and well-maintained condition. In addition, the seats were extremely comfortable and offered sufficient legroom. Both trains had wifi and a bistro.
Pros
IconVery pleasant and fast train connection
IconMuch comfort
Cons
IconActually none
I particularly liked this train connection because it went smoothly, from the online reservation to my destination. I booked my ticket, which was very quick and smooth. The train arrived a little late, but that wasn't too bad. The train was very comfortable, quiet and clean. The train also had a snack and coffee machine. The staff were very polite and helpful. The toilet was neatly designed and looked very hygienic to me. This train also had a wifi connection and a power socket, which I found very positive, as you quickly get bored on this long journey and use up your smartphone battery. I reached my destination quickly and on time, so I recommend it.
Pros

IconOn time
Cons
IconPrice
I travelled by train from Frankfurt to Amsterdam because I prefer the connection by train, as there are few parking spaces on site and, above all, parking spaces that are far too overpriced. I have already heard from several friends that cars have been scratched and windows smashed there, so first the reason why I went by train. The train arrived on time, the passengers were nice, quiet and pleasant, the train made a great impression, it was very clean and well maintained, whether it was the aisle or seating areas, as well as the sanitary facilities. I was impressed myself and can't really say anything negative.
Pros
IconWas positively surprised
IconUnusual for DB
Cons
IconI had no obstacles or difficulties
I usually try to avoid DB, but this time I had no choice and had to take this train connection. I have to say, I worried unnecessarily. The train arrived on time, was very clean and everything was very pleasant. I don't know that from Deutsche Bahn, so I was very positively surprised. The seats were really comfortable and you had a lot of free space, plus the seats were adjustable and very well maintained. The DB staff were able to answer all my questions. The floor as well as the walls and window panes had apparently been freshly cleaned. The toilet was very clean and even had a window for ventilation. I can really recommend this train service to everyone, as I really enjoyed it

For a weekend trip, we have often used the train connection from Frankfurt to Amsterdam. It takes about two and a half hours and you are directly in the centre of Amsterdam. The ICE runs regularly and so far I've always been lucky that it was on time. The trains are very well maintained and clean. You can also get food and drink for the journey from the bistro. The price is quite high. Nevertheless, you can travel carefree and with peace of mind.

IconSomewhat long travel time
The journey from Frankfurt to Amsterdam was with IC 2226 and ICE 156. The journey went through Cologne, where I had to wait a while for the connecting train. This was a bit of a nuisance. Overall, the journey took a little too long, in my opinion. However, it was okay in terms of price. The trains were in very good condition and thanks to seat reservations I was able to sit the whole time. There was access to wifi and the power sockets could also be used. The service on board was not to be complained about.
Pros

Cons
IconAscent
I travelled from Frankfurt to Amsterdam and had to change trains in Cologne. Both trains were clean and well-maintained, and I didn't notice anything unusual. The journey took over 6 hours in total, which I think is a bit too long. The service on board was very good, the staff were friendly and courteous. There was wifi and power sockets were also available. In terms of price, the trip was relatively inexpensive, in my opinion.
Pros
IconOnly positive experiences
Cons
IconNone
Booking this ticket was very understanding and easy. I was able to print my ticket immediately and set off. The train arrived on time, there were enough seats, which were very clean and comfortable. It was relaxed and pleasantly quiet on the train. During the journey you could turn your attention to the scenery. It was clean, there was wifi so you could watch something on YouTube. The toilet met all the guidelines, clean for a train. I can recommend this trip from my side.
Pros
IconVery pleasant trip that I can gladly recommend to others
Cons
IconNo negative experiences
The booking from Frankfurt am Main to Amsterdam went really smoothly. It's really easy and convenient to book and pay online. At the main station, I was able to orientate myself easily and quickly found the tracks. The train arrived on time, I had also received my reservation and was soon sitting at my seat. The train was really clean, the seats were comfortable, the windows were clean so you could have a wonderful view of the landscape. You meet a lot of different people and therefore the journey is not boring. There was wifi so I could watch my series on Netflix. The train was very spacious and very clean, the toilets as well as the smell in the train were pleasant. The staff were friendly and helpful. The journey was quicker than I expected and I arrived at my destination in Amsterdam on time, I would like to do this journey again.

I recently travelled from Frankfurt am Main to Amsterdam. My ICE journey in first class was surprisingly cheap... That totally convinced me! The journey itself was comfortable and the service was good. The hygiene in the ICE was also great! The only thing that didn't work so well was the wifi, which was always down.
