Pros
IconOn time and without changing trains
IconFast and uncomplicated ticket inspection
IconSeating comfort with good equipment and legroom
Iconnot very full
Cons
IconCleanliness and hygiene
IconNo snack machine
The train from Giessen to Kassel wasn't very full, so I was able to relax here. The seats here were also very comfortable and had plenty of power sockets and a stable internet connection. The legroom and backrest also contributed to the seating comfort. The staff here were very friendly and carried out a quick and uncomplicated ticket inspection. Unfortunately, the train and the toilets were very dirty and unhygienic. There was also no snack machine. Otherwise, the train wasn't late and I didn't have to change trains.
