IconConvenience
My journey took place in second class. I waited at the main station and when my train arrived on time, I sat down and immediately noticed that the seats were very comfortable. There was air conditioning on the train, which was also on, which was very good because it was very warm outside. The atmosphere was very pleasant. Then I took a look at the menu, there was a lot of choice and the products were offered at fair prices. I can definitely recommend this great ride.
Pros
IconPunctuality
IconSpace for luggage
Iconsympathetic staff
This trip took about ten hours. The staff were very sympathetic and helpful, so I made it through these ten hours well. My train arrived on time. There was plenty of room for luggage. The wifi was good and continuous. The toilets were clean and hygienic. It wasn't too noisy on the train. I travelled in second class and am happy to recommend this journey to others.
Pros
IconClean trains
IconBeautiful view
Cons
IconLong waiting time when changing
My train journey from Berlin to Zurich was a real pleasure. Berlin's main station is impressive and well organised. The ICE was on time and offered a comfortable seat. The change in Stuttgart went smoothly. However, the waiting time was a bit long. The onward journey through Switzerland was breathtaking. The snow-covered Alps and the clean lakes offered a beautiful view. There was an on-board bistro where coffee and snacks were available. The second train was just like the first, clean and technically up to date.
Pros
IconOn time
Cons
IconToilet
I travelled to Zurich by train from Berlin. I found the service of the staff very friendly and pleasant. You can't say anything about the price. In my eyes, it was very reasonable. The journey itself was very relaxed, except that I had to change trains once. I had great wifi and could therefore pass the time very well. Unfortunately, I didn't find the toilet clean, so I couldn't use it in my eyes.
