It had been quite relaxing on the ICE. The staff checked tickets in a friendly manner and greeted people in the corridors. The on-board bistro was open and the staff were also friendly and prepared food quickly. In my compartment, however, many of the available sockets did not work. The internet, on the other hand, worked perfectly. The train was very clean, as were the toilets. The train itself was very quiet. The train was about 10 minutes late at its destination.

The wifi worked well on the train from Berlin to Basel. The seats were comfortable, but it was a bit too noisy.... Otherwise, friendly staff and good service. Hygiene standard impeccable. Price-performance ratio very good. I would recommend it to others. The facilities are great. The cleanliness too. The train was very punctual.

Even though I was ultimately over 6 hours late at my destination, it was a worthwhile experience. Despite the challenges posed by cancelled trains (a storm and vandalism were the cause), I am a rail fan. Of course, we didn't have a reservation for the train that took us out of Berlin. While the second class in Berlin Südkreuz was partially evacuated with police assistance due to overcrowding, we were even allowed to sit on the floor in first class. In Leipzig, the issue of partial evacuation was repeated, fortunately we were again left unmolested and were even able to get two seats for the family. Fortunately, thanks to the massive legroom in the wide seats, it is no problem for four people (with two children) to share two seats. All in all, despite the circumstances, for me the best option for travelling from Berlin to Basel.

I was satisfied with my journey on the ICE 278 from Basel to Berlin. I was particularly impressed by the punctuality and the generally clean condition. However, the seats were not particularly comfortable for the long journey. The on-board restaurant was of good quality. Both the booking and the check-in process were smooth and uncomplicated. Overall, a recommendable experience for travellers who value a smooth process.
