Pros
IconFriendly and fast ticket control
IconComfortable seats and sufficient equipment
IconClean seats and toilets
Cons
IconOnboard bistro staff made a stressed impression
It was very relaxing. The train was clean and the toilets were shiny, probably cleaned before the start of the journey. The staff made a relatively good impression, but the staff in the on-board bistro came across as very stressed and they also took a while to prepare a dish. The seats were comfortable and the train had an internet connection and plenty of power sockets. The noise level on the train was pleasant.
Pros
IconFast connection
IconOn time
Cons
IconNo wifi
The journey from Frankfurt to Dresden was on ICE 1657, in second class. I did not reserve a seat, which was not necessary as the train was almost empty. It was a fast connection, within four hours you are in Dresden. The train was also on time throughout. It was a clean train, relatively new. Unfortunately, the wifi was down on this day, but that was not a problem.

This was a great ride and it was also very reasonably priced. This ride was my return ride and as I have nothing to criticise, I recommend this ride. The staff were very friendly.

The journey was from Frankfurt main station to Dresden on ICE 1657. I travelled second class. The train was a little unpunctual, but this didn't bother me as I didn't have to catch a connecting train anyway. It was a somewhat historic train, which I personally sometimes like. The train was clean and well maintained. You get to see beautiful landscapes along the route, so the trip is definitely worth it. I can recommend the train ride.
