The journey by ICE from Munich to Hamburg was satisfactory overall. The train offers a comfortable and modern travel experience, with high speed and a smooth ride. The seat was comfortable and there was enough legroom, which is important for a longer journey. The on-board amenities, such as the catering facilities and toilets, were also of a high standard. However, a minor drawback was the high price of the ride. Compared to other modes of transport, it can be too expensive for some people, especially considering that some airlines offer similar routes for a cheaper price. Overall, taking the ICE from Munich to Hamburg was a pleasant experience, but the price might be a barrier for some travellers. Nevertheless, it is a good choice for someone who values comfort and convenience and is willing to pay a higher price.
Pros
IconBooks to borrow
The seats were very comfortable and it was very quiet on the train. The wifi was very good and I had access to electricity at my seat. The staff were very nice and there were many things to order. The train arrived on time and it was very clean on the train, the toilets were also clean. I can pass it on as my ticket was not expensive but worth it.
Pros
Iconthe heaters were on
This was a trip that was 2nd class and I liked it a lot because there was nothing negative. There was healthy food, which was also cheap. The heaters were on. If you had extra requests, you could book it in the app and your request was also fulfilled, for example, regarding food. The train looked very nice from the outside and inside. This train trip definitely deserves praise as it was so cheap and I liked it very much. The wifi was very good and for all the positive reasons, I can only recommend the trip.
Pros
Iconnice train
It was a very long ride, but it didn't feel that long. My seat was clean and I had enough space at my seat. The people were very nice and so were the staff. The air on the train was very clean and it was very quiet on the train. My wifi was good. The toilets were very clean and the air was pure there. The train was on time and everyone was doing their own thing. It was relatively OK. I thought the services were great too. I definitely recommend the trip. What was also very cool is that there was free water. A very great ride.
Pros
Iconrapid travel
Cons
IconTrain was too late
It was a great trip, and before that I made a small stopover from Gernlinden and I can really recommend it, because the food was super tasty and the staff were friendly. The atmosphere was also great and my wifi was great. It was relatively cheap, so I can also recommend it. The toilets were also very clean and I felt comfortable using them.
Pros
IconThe train was on time
Cons
IconHygiene
The journey was generally very good. There was excellent wifi reception and 2 power sockets in each compartment. One negative point, however, is the lack of hygiene, the seats and the floor were not really clean. However, as this was the only bad point, I still recommend the trip.
Pros
IconThe train was on time
Cons
IconThe product has no weaknesses
The journey was very pleasant. The entire compartment was freshly cleaned, quiet and the wifi reception was excellent. Another positive point I noticed was that the train left on time and arrived only 1 minute late. I can therefore recommend the journey by train from Munich to Hamburg.
Pros
IconCosy
Cons
IconLate
IconSlow wifi
IconExpensive
I travelled from Munich to Hamburg yesterday and I have to say that there are positive as well as negative aspects. The seats on the train were very comfortable. The wifi was very slow. The train was delayed by 5 minutes on arrival. The price for such a train journey is far too expensive. The toilets are also not very clean. You have to change trains twice.
Pros
IconSustainable
IconWorking on the train possible
Cons
IconMore expensive than a flight
I travel the route Munich to Hamburg back to Munich. It's a bit of a shame that it's sometimes cheaper to fly than to buy a train ticket. However, what I like is that the journey is very sustainable by train. And you can work great. I always book myself second class or a seat in a compartment. Cleanliness is almost always great and you have wifi access. It's enough for work.
Pros
IconGood price
Cons
IconTrain full
As we were on holiday in Munich, we needed a ticket from Munich to Hamburg. The journey was very pleasant for the most part, but the train was a bit crowded. What was very pleasant was the good low price of the ticket we were able to get as we had booked early. The train was mostly clean, except for a few spots under the seats and the toilet was also cleaned. I can recommend the trip.
Pros
IconThe cleanliness
IconThe equipment
IconThe seating comfort
Cons
IconThe long journey time
IconThe toilets were neglected in terms of cleanliness
IconThe fare or the price-performance ratio
Unfortunately, my train journey from Munich to Hamburg was not very pleasant. One positive point was undoubtedly the cleanliness of the train, which was definitely commendable. The seating comfort and the general furnishings of the train were also okay and made the journey a little more bearable. However, I must emphasise that these positive aspects were overshadowed by some significant shortcomings. The equipment, although acceptable, showed signs of wear and tear, indicating that maintenance had been neglected. This spoilt the overall picture considerably. Seating comfort, although good in itself, was affected by the excessively long journey time. The journey time from Munich to Hamburg was disproportionately long, which is particularly unpleasant for travellers on a tight schedule. The inconvenience of such a long journey was not compensated for by the service provided. The service on board was disappointing and the staff were not very attentive or helpful. The cleanliness, which initially stood out positively, could not compensate for the average or lower standards of the toilets. Overall, these appeared neglected and not sufficiently cleaned. One particularly disappointing aspect was the price-performance ratio. The fare was disproportionate to the services offered and the quality of the journey. In view of this overall situation, I would not recommend this train connection from Munich to Hamburg. Improvements in journey time, service and maintenance would be urgently needed to make the journey more appealing for me and other passengers. On the other hand, I will no longer be able to travel long distances by train.
Pros
IconClean
Cons
IconNone
I really enjoyed the train journey. The staff were very friendly and the wifi was excellent. The sanitary facilities and the compartment were thoroughly cleaned and the hygiene was excellent. I personally think that the price-performance ratio of the journey is optimal. There was a calm atmosphere on the train and it was very quiet throughout the journey. Recommendation!
Pros
IconComfortable
Cons
IconNone
Instead of long car journeys or short-haul flights, I always prefer to take the train, as it's cheaper and also less stressful if the train is on time, as you save yourself either traffic jams or stress at the airport. Everything else is also great, the train is clean, the wifi works and the staff are very nice. Of course, you also have more legroom on a train journey than on a plane. Always happy to travel again!
Pros
IconComfortable seating, sufficient space to the front seat, panoramic window
IconRide is quiet and pleasant
IconPossibility to make a reservation in a quiet compartment
Cons
IconPoor selection in the on-board restaurant
IconOn-board announcements were barely understandable
The train journey was relaxed and I was pleasantly surprised by the legroom in the front seat. As I usually only travel by plane, I was also delighted with the option of reserving a seat in the quiet compartment. On the negative side, I have to rate the selection of the on-board restaurant and the announcements made by the train staff were unfortunately very difficult to understand. Otherwise it was a very pleasant journey!
Pros
IconComfortable
Cons
IconNone
I travelled to Hamburg with a friend some time ago. The journey was very comfortable, with fresh air and a reasonable temperature. The sanitary facilities were very clean and hygienic. The staff was super friendly. I think the price was definitely worth it. The atmosphere was very quiet and it was generally very relaxing. I recommend the train connection.
Pros
IconFast journey with the ICE
IconAir conditioning and sockets were fine
IconToilets were very clean
Cons
IconYou must reserve a seat in order to be able to sit for a longer period of time
The train with the train number ICE 588 departed on time. The seats were comfortable and clean. The toilets were also very clean. The wifi was fast enough. If you want to sit in the same seat permanently, you have to make a reservation. Otherwise, the person who reserved your seat can ask you to vacate the seat.
