A few months ago, I took a train journey from Munich to Dortmund with Deutsche Bahn. The staff were very friendly and always smiling. Hygiene was very well taken care of. The toilets were very clean and well maintained. The price was very well justified for the ticket and in my opinion quite reasonable. Unfortunately, there were many changes of trains, which made the journey difficult. The noise on the train was very loud. Also, the train did not arrive in Dortmund on time. Overall, a good journey.

Cons
IconDelay of 25 minutes
From Munich to Dortmund, no change had been necessary. It was a very relaxed journey as there was no high occupancy. It was very quiet on the train. The comfortable seats and full equipment made it very comfortable. The toilets were clean and so was the passenger compartment. The staff was friendly and the check was carried out quickly. However, I was bothered by the 25-minute delay here, as I still had an appointment. Otherwise, a very relaxed journey.
Pros
IconQuiet
Cons
IconNone
The journey was very quiet, firstly because the passengers were quiet and secondly because the train is also very quiet. There is functioning wifi and charging facilities. The seats are comfortable and you can sit in them without immediately getting back pain. The sanitary facilities were clean and full. The staff were friendly and helpful. At first, the price seemed exorbitant, but after thinking about it for a while, I came to the conclusion that it was quite fair.

Travelling by train offered some positive aspects, such as excellent wifi, extremely comfortable seats and a pleasant volume on the train. The reservation options were well structured and made it easier to plan the journey. However, there were also some negative points to note. The staff were unfriendly, which detracted from the overall experience. The train did not arrive on time, which caused some inconvenience. I personally found the fare expensive and not enough attention was paid to cleanliness, especially in the toilets. Overall, the comfort factors such as wifi and seats were brilliant, but the unpunctuality, high fare and laxity in cleanliness marred the overall picture. Overall a satisfying journey!
