Pros
IconFast travel
Cons
IconNone
I travelled from Hamburg to Nuremberg and Hanover was a stopover. Therefore, I can evaluate the journey. The train was well maintained. The Deutsche Bahn staff were friendly and courteous. The train was not significantly busy, so there were plenty of seats. The train was well-maintained and appeared to be technically faultless. The train was not delayed. The landscapes along the route were worth seeing. I can recommend the journey.
Pros
IconSeats
Cons
IconPunctuality
Iconwifi
I regularly travel from Hamburg to Hanover and back again because of my job. The staff is usually friendly and the ticket control runs smoothly. Unfortunately, the wifi in the train is usually very poor and you sometimes have no network/internet during the journey. Unfortunately, punctuality often leaves a lot to be desired.
Pros
IconOn time
IconRelaxed
Cons
IconNone
The train was quite full on a Sunday, but that was kind of to be expected. Otherwise, the journey was totally relaxed and quick. You can't get there and back so quickly and easily by car. If you don't need a car in HH, I would highly recommend taking the train. The trip was booked including the return journey, so you save another 2-3€. Train was on time except for 3-4 minutes. Not worth mentioning. I think the staff are friendlier and funnier than they used to be. The wifi quality has improved a lot in the last few years. But I didn't use it on this journey.
Pros

IconQuick
IconClean

Cons
IconHigh price
The train left on time and had no incidents during the journey. The wifi was fast and connecting was very easy. Before departure, the train was apparently freshly cleaned, so there was nothing to complain about. I did not use the toilets. The ride was comfortable and went very quickly. The volume was also appropriate for a Saturday evening. I bought the ticket at short notice because the ride was spontaneous. I wouldn't do that again in the future because of the price. For spontaneous trips, I'd rather take the car.
Pros
IconCheap train ticket
Iconkind staff
Already I can only say that I can recommend my return journey to others, as I liked everything and at a very fair price. My train arrived on time and when I got on, I sat down and I immediately noticed how cosy and comfortable the seats were. Then I tested the internet connection and it was very strong. The staff looked very motivated and did a very good job. There was also a lot of attention paid to hygiene. This trip was great and I also managed to sleep a bit little as it was very quiet on the train.
Pros
IconObservance of hygiene
Iconpleasant journey
While I was waiting for the train, people were quietly boarding, I sat down and what interested me was that there was an exceptionally hygienic cleaning and I was very happy about that because hygiene was very important to me on some of my trips, I felt very good because I was very comfortable on the train. I am very happy to pass on the trip as the staff were very nice.
Pros
IconCleanliness
Iconpleasant journey
I went in and it smelled very hygienic and fresh, the surfaces creaked, the windows were clean, I sat down in my seat and turned on my tablet, the internet performance was great and I sipped my coffee, then I went to the toilet and encountered a very hygienic environment. Hygiene is important in crowded places, I recommend it to everyone. Besides, this was my return trip. The staff also did a very good job and my train arrived on time.
Pros
IconPrice/Service/Hygiene
Cons
IconPunctuality
Last year I took a train journey from Hamburg to Hanover with DB. I was delighted by the service. They were over-friendly and responded immediately to my concerns. The price was excellent as I only had to spend €18. In addition, the facilities on the train were really commendable as my mobile phone was able to connect quickly to the high - speed internet. The seats were very comfortable and clean. The noise level on the train was very reasonable. I arrived in Hanover on time and there was no need to change trains. In addition, the toilets were very clean. In summary, a wonderful journey. I can recommend it to everyone.
Pros
IconRecumbent seat
IconAir conditioning
This was my return journey in 2nd class. My seat was very comfortable as I had a very comfortable reclining seat, which also had a massage function. The wifi was very good and had full bars throughout. My train was on time and I arrived in Hanover more or less on time. It was relatively quiet on the train. The staff were very nice and friendly. I was also always informed where I was at the moment. I felt comfortable using the toilet. Great trip, I will definitely pass it on as everything went well.

IconExpensive
Unfortunately, the train arrived a little late and was relatively full. However, the service staff apologised directly for this and were friendly. The train itself was clean and modern, the seats comfortable and equipped with sockets that worked. The internet was also good and worked smoothly. The price was regrettably high, which is incomprehensible to me for the route. At least I met many nice people and had conversations on the journey.
Pros
IconPunctuality
IconPeace and quiet
IconGood wifi
I didn't notice anything negative on this journey, so I'm happy to recommend it and rate it five stars. The wifi was good, I was able to surf the net without any problems. The atmosphere on the train was very good as I had my peace and quiet. The train was very clean, especially the toilets. The staff were very friendly and were there for me. The journey was very pleasant as my seat was comfortable. Everything ran on time.
Pros
IconNice staff
IconCatering offer
IconPunctuality
Cons
IconWeak wifi
The wifi was unfortunately a little underpowered, but worked. The sockets were intact. The volume in my car was absolutely pleasant. As always, the seats were clean and comfortable. The staff in the train's restaurant were particularly nice. The train attendants were also very nice. The journey on the ICE took about 75 minutes, there were no changes and it was on time. It would have been possible to reserve a seat. The slightly dirty toilets were unfavourable. All in all, the journey was very pleasant.

The journey by Deutsche Bahn from Hamburg Hbf to Hannover Hbf can really be warmly recommended. Whether for commuters or a day trip, the journey is excellent in many respects. Starting with the pleasantly short journey time, the comfortable capacity utilisation, the remarkable cleanliness and the first-class service, even in 2nd class. I would be happy to travel again.

The ICE journey from Hamburg to Hanover was an outstanding experience that exceeded expectations in many respects. The decisive factor that made this journey so positive was the extremely favourable ticket price. Considering the outstanding quality of service and comfort on board, this price seems almost unbeatable and inimitable. One aspect that immediately caught the eye was the exemplary cleanliness of the train, both the seats and the communal areas such as the on-board bistro or the toilets were spotless, which contributed to a pleasant and well-kept ambience. Clean sanitary facilities and tidy waste bins underline the commitment, hygiene and well-being of the passengers and make a train journey extremely pleasant. The friendliness and professionalism of the on-board staff also deserve praise; the team always endeavoured to make the passengers' stay as pleasant as possible. Questions were answered patiently and there was an overall warm atmosphere that made the journey particularly pleasant. The punctuality of the train is another plus point of this journey. Departure and arrival were almost exactly on schedule, which not only made my journey planning easier, but also contradicted the otherwise rather unreliable preconceptions of Deutsche Bahn. All in all, the EC journey from Hamburg to Hanover was not only attractively priced, but also offered first-class service. Exemplary cleanliness and efficient scheduling. This positive experience makes it clear that quality and economy can go hand in hand. I can therefore recommend this train connection without reservation and am already looking forward to my next journey with the ICE, at least on this route!
