On the train ride from Berlin to Hamburg, I particularly liked the well-functioning wifi. This also directly made up for the delay of about 20 minutes, which is why I was a little disappointed. The staff was very friendly, as always, and the toilet was clean, even if it was rarely free. My seat was tidy and there was no rubbish lying around.
Pro

Cons
IconDelay of 10 minutes
IconOne toilet defective
In the ICE from Berlin to Leipzig, it had been very quiet on the train because I was sitting in a separate compartment. One of the two toilets had been defective, so there was a queue at the toilets. However, the train had been clean and the staff friendly. The facilities like internet worked fine and the seats were comfortable. In the end, the train arrived 10 minutes late.

I recently took a trip from Berlin to Hamburg with Deutsche Bahn. The volume I'm the train was optimal. In addition, the train arrived in Leipzig on time. Also, the seats were very comfortable, clean and excellently maintained. However, I found the price of the ticket a bit expensive. The staff were very unfriendly and spoke to me in a very rude tone and also shouted at me. Unfortunately, there were a lot of changeovers which made the journey difficult. The journey was fine.

IconA bit expensive if you book too late
I travelled south from Berlin's main station to Munich via Leipzig and had an uncomplicated journey. You don't have to change trains and you travel all the way. The journey time was about 1 hour and 13 minutes. We had not had any delays and I was able to spend the whole time in the on-board restaurant drinking my coffee without having to reserve a seat. The route is so fast by cig, it's not worth going by car.

Ladies and Gentlemen, I would now like to evaluate my train journey with Deutsche Bahn from Berlin to Leipzig. At the outset, I would like to mention a few positive features. The train arrived in Leipzig on time, even over-punctual. There was no need to change trains, so I was very pleased. Otherwise, it is always very time-consuming to change trains. The hygiene rules were extremely well observed. The toilets were very clean and hygienic. The ticket check was also very quick and problem-free. However, the price was not well justified, in my opinion. It was also very noisy on the train. The wifi was very poor. My mobile phone or laptop could not connect to the internet at all. The seats were comfortable, but not well maintained. The seats had coffee stains or food scraps all over them. Overall, not such a great trip.

I was very satisfied with my journey from Berlin to Leipzig. We reached the destination station on time and had no disruptions during the train journey. The staff were also very polite and courteous and also informed us about connecting trains in good time. In general, the train was very clean and the toilets were also freshly cleaned. The occupancy of the train was not particularly high and I found the space to be absolutely sufficient. All in all, a very good trip - nothing could have been better.

The train journey from Berlin to Leipzig was really great! The wifi worked flawlessly and I was able to stream and wifi chat with my friends the whole time. The service was very friendly and the seats were extremely comfortable, which was especially important as I was on my way to a concert. Everything was clean and the toilets were also in good condition. The journey didn't take long and I arrived on time. The only downside was the value for money, but overall a great experience!

IconSeat reservation usually necessary
I took the train from Berlin to Erfurt in mid-October. I had a seat reservation at the window. The train was very clean. I was able to work in peace thanks to the good wifi connection. The train was not delayed that day. The fact that you don't have to change trains on this route makes the journey very comfortable. I can recommend this train connection to anyone, especially as it takes much longer by car.
Pro
IconVery fast
Cons
IconToo many people
I travelled on the Berlin Leipzig train for the first time and was pleasantly surprised. The train was very clean and modern, equipped with power sockets and wifi. It arrived on time and was also punctual, so I didn't miss my connecting train. Unfortunately, as everywhere else, the service staff were not particularly friendly. What I didn't like at all, however, were the excessive crowds of people who sometimes had to sit in the aisles. The volume was correspondingly loud.
