Pro
IconOn time
IconPleasant
Cons
IconWifi did not work
I travelled by ICE from Cologne to Münster on business. The wifi actually worked. However, the reception on the route was apparently so bad that I couldn't access the internet at times. There was a power socket between the seats so that I could continue to charge my MacBook and continue working. That's always great when you travel on an ICE. The ticket inspector was quite unobtrusive. He simply asked for my ticket, read it and moved on to the next passenger. On the whole, the train was clean. You could also use the toilet. I would prefer a train to a car any time. The journey was punctual, pleasant and the air conditioning worked. This also justifies the price.

Last month I took the Deutsche Bahn ICE to Münster to visit my sister. Boarding the train at the platform went smoothly. I had reserved a seat because I knew from the DB app that the train would be full. The seats have enough legroom and options to stow my bags. The seats were very comfortable and the internet was good enough to surf the web on the journey. The staff on board were very nice and helpful. The toilets were very clean and hygienic. Overall, the trip was very pleasant and the price was perfectly fine. I would recommend this type of travel to anyone who wants to travel quickly from Cologne to Münster.
Pro
IconGreat staff
IconOn time
Cons
IconNone
My journey by ICE from Cologne to Münster was absolutely satisfactory. From the moment of boarding in Cologne to the arrival in Münster, everything was perfectly organised. The station in Cologne was easy to find and the information on the display boards was clear and precise, the ICE itself just modern and comfortable. Seats were spacious and ergonomically designed, and there were even sockets to charge my devices. The wifi worked so perfectly, which made it more possible to work productively during the journey. The service on board was very good and the train attendants were attentive and courteous and even helped me stow my bags. The journey was smooth and on time. The speed of the train was impressive and the views of the countryside were very beautiful. All in all, my journey on the ICE from Cologne to Münster was an absolute pleasure. I can highly recommend this train connection and will definitely use it again if I want to travel between these cities in the future.
Pro
IconVery fast
IconPrice performance was right
Cons
IconWC a little unclean
The train connection was unfortunately unpunctual, so I didn't make my appointment on time. The train was tidy and clean throughout the journey. The seats, windows, floor and general areas were well maintained. There were power sockets at the seats, which was very convenient for charging electronic devices. Unfortunately, not all sockets were functional. The toilets were unfavourably unclean, with yellow stains on the toilet seat. Overall, the train connection was nevertheless fine, the price-performance ratio was right.
Pro
IconReliable and fast
Cons
IconActually none
The train connection was extremely punctual. The train reached its destination without any significant delays, which made the journey pleasant and stress-free. The overall cleanliness of the train was satisfactory, the seats and floors were well cleaned and rubbish bins were emptied regularly. It was great to be able to charge my electronic devices while travelling. The toilets on the train were fine, but could be cleaner. It would be helpful if they were cleaned more often. Overall, the train connection from Cologne to Münster was very pleasant and convenient.
Pro
IconComfortable seats with very good equipment
IconFriendly staff
IconClean train and hygienic toilets
IconNo need to change trains
Cons
Icon10 minutes late
The train from Cologne to Münster was relatively empty and therefore relatively quiet. Unfortunately, the train had been delayed by 10 minutes, but that didn't bother me as I didn't have to change trains. The train was clean and the toilets were hygienic. I also found the seats very comfortable and very well equipped. I particularly liked the large tables. The staff here were very friendly and quick to check tickets. All in all, it was a good journey for me!
Pro
IconPrice-performance ratio
Cons
IconNone
A quick and pleasant journey! The journey was very straightforward as I didn't have to change trains and the train left and arrived on time. You have a seat that is very comfortable and a good view. You could even buy food on the train itself, which I did and I have to say it tasted really good. But what surprised me most was the price, as I had imagined it would be much more expensive before booking.

I travelled by train from Cologne to Münster. The train arrived at the station on time and there were no delays or disruptions during the rest of the journey. The sanitary facilities were unfortunately quite dirty and not hygienic. During the journey I had to change trains once point the offer only wifi works great. It is definitely very convenient to travel by Deutsche Bahn and much less stressful in everyday life.

I often travel across Germany and also to Switzerland and Austria on business. On this day, I took the connection from Cologne to Münster. The train arrived on time, which was very good for my appointment. Unfortunately, I couldn't use the wifi during the journey as it wasn't working, which I thought was a shame as I wanted to work while travelling. The sanitary facilities were also not particularly hygienic. The journey itself was super quiet and very quick. In general, the price is totally justified.

I had to travel to Münster for a training course. Luckily I travelled there the day before, because the train I usually took was cancelled, so I had to take the next one. Fortunately, the ticket was still valid. The train was very clean and I had a great seat. The toilet was also fine.
