Pro
IconAir conditioning
Iconplenty of choice on the menu
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.
Pro
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.
Pro
IconClean trains
IconBeautiful view
Contra
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.
Pro
IconOn time
Contra
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.
Pro
IconGood service
IconUncomplicated changeover
IconNo delays
Contra
IconNone
I was travelling from Berlin to Zurich and had to change planes in Stuttgart, but that was no problem. The booking was also straightforward, as the staff answered all my questions. The trains themselves were largely in good condition, they were well maintained and clean. Both trains were on time, so I reached my destination on time. I can therefore highly recommend this connection.
Pro
IconUnbeatable price
IconStable wifi
Contra
IconNone
The train connection was punctual. The timetable was adhered to precisely, which contributed to a smooth and stress-free travelling experience. The price of the train ticket was reasonable and the service offered was very good. The cleanliness of the train was generally very good. The seats, aisles and toilets were well maintained. However, there was some minor soiling on the seat cushions. The wifi connection on the train was very stable and enabled comfortable use of internet services. The toilets on the train were clean and well maintained. There was sufficient toilet paper and soap. The only problem was that the toilet was a little overloaded during peak times. The seats were very comfortable and had enough room for my legs. The ability to recline the seat was very nice and very comfortable. Overall, this train journey was a very good experience and I would easily do it again.
Pro

IconGood selection in the bistro
IconPunctual

IconPoor wifi signal
The journey from Berlin to Zurich included a change of trains in Stuttgart. The train journey was generally pleasant, as the trains were comfortable and modern.

The wifi was problematic, as the connection regularly wifi broke down.

The fast and comfortable way of travelling with the ICE is brilliant. The staff are very friendly. On the negative side, I have to mention the wifi, which is very poor, and the few power sockets available on the train. Unfortunately, I always have to complain about the cleanliness.
Pro

IconFriendly staff
IconDelicious food in the restaurant
Contra
IconDirty toilets
IconDirty train
IconBroken seat
On my train journey from Berlin to Zurich, I had very good wifi and there were also plenty of power sockets, which made the journey much easier. The comfort wasn't that great, as my seat was broken and the train was also very noisy. On the other hand, the service was all the better, as the staff were super friendly and the options for making reservations were also great. However, the train was very dirty and the toilets were also filthy. The journey time was good, except that the train was late. The price was good.
