Pro
IconHeaters were on
This was my return journey and there was nothing negative. My train arrived on time and the staff looked very motivated, this lifted my spirits. The seats were relatively comfortable and the wifi had 3 bars, so it was relatively good. I really liked the food and there was a lot of choice. It was quiet on the train, so I could still get some work done on my laptop. The mirrors in the toilets were also very clean. This was a trip that deserves 5 stars, and is therefore something to pass on. The return journey was in 2nd class.
Pro
IconGood food
That was my return trip and it was great. I would like to mention in advance that I can recommend the trip to others because I didn't notice anything negative and everything was good, but the food was especially good, it was cheap and it had a high quality taste. The toilet paper was good quality and the toilets were clean. The staff were very nice and were generous enough to sign in some patients' bags, which was very very nice of them, even though it wasn't compulsory for them. My train ticket was also relatively cheap. Great journey and a train that was on time.
Pro
IconVery comfortable seats
Contra
IconThe train was late
I really liked the return journey, but there was one small thing I didn't like, and that was that the train was late, but it wasn't that bad as the train was only 7 minutes late. Apart from that, I liked everything. What I liked most was that it was very comfortable, but I also really liked that the toilets were clean and that attention was paid to hygiene. The taste of the food was good. It was quiet on the train for a long time, so quiet that I could even sleep a little. Great trip and highly recommended.
Pro
IconVery cool atmosphere
This was my return trip, as you can see in the photo, and the ride was really great. The atmosphere was great when I was looking out the window listening to music. I also liked the performance of the wifi signal as it was very strong. The food I ordered was also delicious. The staff made sure the passengers were comfortable the whole time. This trip definitely gets 5 out of 5 stars from me as it is highly recommended. In addition, my train also arrived on time.
Pro
IconPunctuality of the train and the staff
IconNice staff and hygienic train
Contra
IconUnfortunately, one had to change trains once
The train journey from Munich to Düsseldorf was a very positive experience overall. The service of the train staff was attentive and helpful. Both when boarding and during the journey, the staff were available to answer questions and address concerns. The comfort on board was good. The seats were comfortable. Cleanliness on the train was also satisfactory. There were plenty of bins and the toilet was clean. The wifi was good. The train arrived on time and I did not have to change trains. I would recommend it to anyone and will definitely use it again.
Pro
IconThe staff were very nice
Probability in second class from Munich to Düsseldorf. Besides, that was my return journey, which took 5 hours. Besides, the train looked very nice and tidy from the inside. What amazed me was that the chairs from Düsseldorf were orange, which I had never seen before. The chairs were also very comfortable. The amazing thing was that there was a big clock in the middle of the train, so you could see what time it was. What was also very cool was that the staff cleaned the toilets after every bowel movement. The wifi was also very good, although many people used it, it was still good. Although it was winter, the heaters were on and it was hot on the train. I really liked the fact that the staff went out of their way as much as they could, so I can endear the trip to them. Finally, I would like to say that my train arrived on time as expected. Great ride!

Contra
Iconbad internet
My return journey was definitely a lot more pleasant than the outward journey. The train was not so crowded and it was pleasantly quiet. the toilets were also very clean. I wasn't disgusted by using them. The seats were comfortable as always and the power sockets worked too, so I didn't have to worry about my electronic devices going out. Unfortunately, the wifi was pretty bad, so I couldn't do much on my laptop that had to do with the internet. The train driver was a bit annoying with very frequent announcements, but very friendly.

Iconit was a bit noisy on the train
That was my return journey. To start with, the only thing I didn't like was that it was a bit noisy on the train, but it wasn't that bad as there were a lot more positives. The best thing was that I had enough space and my seat was very comfortable. Luckily there were no problems with the journey at all. The toilets were clean and a lot of attention was paid to hygiene. The performance of the price was also top, so I can recommend it. In addition, my wifi was also very good. Overall, I would prefer to rate it with 4.5 stars. Great ride!
Pro
IconGreater
As you can see in the photo below, this was my return journey in Greater Space. I really had a lot of space to myself. After all, I was travelling alone. There were no negative aspects. I had wifi and a power socket at my seat. My seat was very comfortable and I had many options to order things and one of those options was that I could press a button and then a staff member would come. I can definitely recommend the journey as I was also always kept informed and the service was great. It was also very quiet on the train and my train arrived on time. Finally, I want to mention that my ticket was very cheap.

Contra
IconNone
When I got on the train at Munich Central Station, I didn't have particularly high expectations. The journey took about 5 hours. I judge the seats to be very comfortable and extremely cosy. The reception also absolutely exceeded my expectations. The temperature was appropriate and the people were very quiet. The delay of 10 minutes is fine in my opinion. Overall 4 stars.

On my return journey from Munich to Hanover, the Munich-Düsseldorf route, which I travelled on the ICE, was extremely pleasant. The train was superbly equipped. There were comfortable seats with head cushions, individual air conditioning and power sockets at the seats as well as free wifi, and the sanitary facilities and doors were all intact, plus the on-board bistro was open, which also played into your hands during the five-hour journey. The staff were also extremely committed and communicative. The price may not have been a bargain, but it was definitely worth it for such a relaxed journey home over such a long distance.
