IconThe train was slightly delayed on arrival
The journey from Frankfurt to Hamburg was very pleasant overall. The facilities were outstanding. The wifi was free and super fast. There were also several power outlets and bins. The seats were rather comfortable and good for working and falling asleep. The train was also very quiet. The toilets and all other areas of the train were cleaned. So overall, the hygiene was good.

This was a trip where the train ticket was very cheap. I had good wifi and multiple access to electricity for example: A power socket at the seat. My reclining bed/seat was very comfortable. The services were top notch, although the prices were about high, but quality over quantity. The toilets were clean and disinfected. I can recommend it endearingly as as I said a ticket was very reasonable. Great ride!

Unfortunately, we were 20 minutes late, which is why I missed my connection in Hamburg. It should also be noted that we had many breaks during which we were met by other trains.
