Pros
IconPositively surprised
IconVery fast
Cons
IconSomewhat unclean WC
This train connection, like the journey itself, went smoothly. At the station, the train arrived on time and I was able to board the train without any problems, without any crowds. The crowd was contained, so everyone had a seat. My seat was very comfortable and had a folding table and a side pocket to put my wallet or smartphone in. The seat also had an adjustable armrest and a comfortable headrest. The train itself made a good impression. The toilet was a bit unhygienic in my opinion, the toilet seat was dirty and there was unfortunately no toilet paper. Unfortunately, there was no wifi, but there was a power socket on the train. Nevertheless, I reached my destination on time and made it to my appointment on time.
Pros
IconGood service
IconEasy to book through digitalisation
Cons
IconMany stops
I bought the Deutsche Bahn ticket because of a business trip. Booking the ticket was very easy and can be done online in no time. The train arrived on time and I chose a table seat. I was able to charge my laptop at the socket and use the wifi provided by Deutsche Bahn. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. Seats can be reserved in advance if desired. The cleanliness on the train and in the toilets was perfectly fine. The planned travel time was adhered to and there were no complications. Unfortunately, no direct connection was possible on this day. In my opinion, the price-performance ratio is right and I am absolutely satisfied.
Pros
IconComfortable seating
IconNo security check
IconFlexibility
Cons
IconTime restrictions
IconLimited accessibility
IconUnpredictable disturbances
As a businessman, I recently had the pleasure of experiencing the Business Train journey from Frankfurt am Main to Hanover. The journey offered a first-class ambience and the wifi allowed me to stay productive and communicate easily with my team. The catering during the journey was adequate and satisfying. The train left exactly at the scheduled departure time and arrived in Hanover at the agreed time. Overall, I can unreservedly recommend the train journey from Frankfurt am Main to Hanover.
Pros
IconICE comfortable
Cons
IconVery full
IconReplacement train
IconLeft standing from Kassel
The journey with the ICE was unfortunately not nice! First, a replacement train was planned, which is okay. However, we were then all asked to leave the train from Kassel, because the weather was no longer suitable. Instead of providing accommodation or buses, all passengers were left in the lurch. Nothing was taken care of, very very weak from DB. Five of us got together and organised a taxi to Hanover, otherwise we'd be stuck there. This will be a reason for me not to travel by train if possible. Too bad
Pros
IconCleanliness
Cons
IconPrice
I also use the route from Frankfurt to Hanover very often for business. It takes just under 4 hours by ICE. I really like travelling by ICE. You can work on your laptop in peace and quiet and usually get a good seat even without a seat reservation. The bistro is always very well set up and the coffee tastes excellent. Most of the time, the train is also quite punctual, so you can also catch the connecting trains easily. The price of the ticket is too high in my opinion.
Pros
IconVery positive
Cons
IconI have not had any negative experiences
The booking of this trip went smoothly. I was able to find my way around the station immediately thanks to the good signposting. The train was spacious and comfortable. There was enough space and it was not too noisy. The train was clean and there was even wifi on board. The toilets were well maintained, the snack bar had different types of coffee, as well as different types of snacks. The staff were very nice. I really enjoyed this trip. My recommendation.
Pros
IconSpacious
Cons
IconA little dirty
The train arrived on time. There was no need to change trains as the train ran through. The booking of the ticket went smoothly. The facilities on the train were average, unfortunately there was no wifi and no electricity. The toilet was OK, unfortunately there was nothing to dry your hands. What I noticed negatively was that the floor was full of sand, which was unpleasant, and that's why I'm only giving 4 stars. Otherwise, I reached my destination quickly, the scenery on the way was very pleasant.

The train journey from Frankfurt to Hanover was a solid experience overall, but with some criticisms. The comfort on board was pleasant, the seats were comfortable and there was enough space for luggage. The train journey was on time and without delays. However, it has to be said that the price of the journey was not particularly cheap. It felt like you had to pay quite a high price for a one-way train journey. This was particularly disappointing as it was at times when many people had to stay at home due to travel restrictions. Another criticism was the lack of sufficient entertainment facilities on board. There was no way to enjoy movies or music, and the wifi was also unavailable. This can be a real problem for longer train journeys. Overall, the train journey from Frankfurt to Hanover was satisfactory, but the high price and lack of entertainment options unfortunately marred the overall experience. It would be nice if there were ways to reduce the price of train travel and improve the comfort for passengers.

I recently took a train trip from Frankfurt to Hanover and was overall satisfied with the journey. The trains were on time and comfortable, but the price was unfortunately not that cheap. I found it a bit disappointing that I had to pay so much for the journey. Nevertheless, the journey was pleasant and I was able to relax and work during the journey. The seats were comfortable and there was enough space for my legs, which is especially important if you are taking a longer journey. There was also a café on the train where I could buy snacks and drinks. Overall, the train journey from Frankfurt to Hanover was a good experience, but the price was a bit too high for me. Nevertheless, I would use the train again if I had to travel that way again.
