Two months ago, I travelled from Frankfurt am Main to Mannheim by ICE. My journey was very comfortable Temperature and volume in the ICE were very relaxed. The wifi also worked. The railway staff on the spot were totally helpful. Great! Unfortunately, the hygienic conditions on site were not really good. The train toilets in particular were very dirty. The compartments could also have been a bit cleaner.

The train journey from Frankfurt to Mannheim was a pleasant experience. The train was on time and the seats were comfortable. The journey time was quite short, so I was able to reach my destination quickly. The view from the train window was nice especially during the ride along the Rhine. The train attendants were friendly and helpful. There was also a small snack and drink vending machines to keep you hydrated during the journey. Overall, it was a relaxed and uncomplicated journey. I would definitely recommend this train service, especially if you are looking for a quick and comfortable way to travel.

This train journey was business-related on my part. It was a pleasant experience. The train was clean and comfortable and the seats offered enough legroom. The journey time was also great as the train arrived on time. The scenery along the route was also beautiful and provided a change from working on the PC. It was only a bit noisy or the train was a bit busy. But the toilets were always clean and hygienic. Staff were also nice.

I recently travelled from Frankfurt to Mannheim on this train and it was a pleasant experience. The train was on time and clean and I had enough space for me and my luggage. The journey time was also pleasant as I was able to see some beautiful scenery and small towns along the way. There were also plenty of snacks and drinks on the train, which was really convenient. The only downside was that there were a few delays, but that wasn't really a big problem as I wasn't in a hurry. Overall, it was a very pleasant experience and I plan to continue travelling like this in the future.

I spent a weekend in Mannheim and travelled to and from the city on this train. I really enjoyed the train ride and there is not much to criticise. The comfort was very pleasant and the train was only slightly delayed due to a fault. I particularly liked the cleanliness on the train and in the toilets. I had booked the seat and was able to enjoy the legroom. The train was also not full and so the whole atmosphere was pleasant. I recommend this train connection to everyone

The journey from Frankfurt am Main to Mannheim was very pleasant and smooth. The connection was pleasant and relaxed, there was wifi on board as well as a power socket, the seats were comfortable and clean. The staff were very friendly. The toilet was clean and there was plenty of toilet paper and paper towels to dry your hands, as well as soap and disinfectant. The price could be a little cheaper though, otherwise I am very happy with this route and can happily recommend it.

I travelled by 2nd class ICE, the journey was very pleasant and in my opinion recommendable. The journey dragged on a bit, but it was still faster than by car and also much cheaper. The snack bar was open and I bought a coffee. It was a bit too expensive, in my opinion. The train looked a bit run down, but was nowhere near capacity. There was plenty of seating available, so I felt very free and comfortable on the journey. I would very much like to repeat this trip.

Contra
Icon-
The journey goes by very quickly, especially with the ICE. The ICE arrived on time. It was a relatively new train, it looked very well maintained. I can say little about the staff, as they were not really present on the short route. Even without a BahnCard, the price for the one-way journey was quite affordable. At the time I travelled, which was around 13:00, the train was not overcrowded. There were plenty of seats.
