I recently visited my grandparents in Munich. I had to drive there from Heidelberg. The journey went without any problems. I had to change trains once in Stuttgart, which took me about twenty minutes. Otherwise, the whole journey took about three hours, fifteen minutes.

The ticket was easy to book, with seat reservation. The ticket was super cheap thanks to the savings offer. It was great that the train went through and I didn't have to change trains, plus the train was on time. The train was an older model, so the atmosphere was not so nice and there were a lot of people on the way. A big minus point was the heat in the train, as there was unfortunately no air conditioning. Despite everything, I would always take this connection again.
