IconToilets clean
Contra
IconTrain was delayed
I travelled from Nuremberg to Leipzig by ICE. Unfortunately, the train was 45 minutes late, which was especially annoying when I arrived late at night. Otherwise, there were enough seats, toilets and wifi worked and I could work with my laptop at a seat with a table.

Contra

Wifi was okay, there were plenty of power sockets. The seats were comfortable and the train was about 50 per cent full. Unfortunately, the train was about 20 minutes late, so I couldn't catch my train afterwards. The price-performance ratio is reasonable. The train staff were friendly.
