My journey from Ingolstadt to Frankfurt was very successful and fast. The price was very reasonable and fair. The occupancy of the train on a Saturday evening was not particularly high and therefore pleasant. Unfortunately, the on-board bistro was no longer well equipped and the staff were therefore somewhat unfriendly. I found that a pity, as I was quite hungry. Also, the air conditioning did not work well, despite the high summer. For me, the train is a real alternative on this route, if the described deficiencies are remedied in the future.

I have to tell you about my train journey from Ingolstadt to Frankfurt. The journey really had its ups and downs, but overall it was cool. The seats on the train were pretty comfortable. I could lean back and relax, which is really important on a long journey. The train staff were also friendly and helpful. They always helped you out and had a smile on their face. What bothered me a bit, though, were the toilets. To be honest, they weren't that great. It wouldn't have hurt to clean them more often. And then there was the wifi, or rather the lack of it. That was really disappointing. I couldn't go online, check the news or anything else. That was a real shame. As far as punctuality is concerned, I can't say anything bad. The train came and went on time, which was really cool.

My journey from Ingolstadt to Frankfurt was great. The train was super punctual, comfortable and the staff on board the Deutsche Bahn ICE were very nice. Unfortunately, the train was a bit dirty in parts and quite full, so I only found a seat after some searching. Also, the on-board bistro was no longer well equipped, which was a pity. All in all, I would choose the train again for this route.
