My ICE journey from Dortmund to Hamburg of about 3 hours was very pleasant. The equipment was top. The wifi worked very well and the seats were very comfortable. In addition, the train was on time. Unfortunately, the cleanliness throughout the train was not really good. Especially the toilets were very unhygienic.

I took the ICE from Koblenz via Düsseldorf to Hamburg... The price was very good, I paid less than 80€ for two people! The ICE was also clean and the toilets were in a good hygienic condition. However, the staff was very unfriendly...
Pro

IconThere was no wifi at my place either. However, I don't think that's a bad thing.
My journey from Dortmund to Hamburg by train was really impressive. The train was equipped with modern comforts and the seats were very comfortable. The generous legroom helped to make the journey extremely pleasant. The ability to charge my devices at the sockets was very handy. The comfort during the journey was excellent. The air conditioning created a pleasant atmosphere and the quiet journey allowed me to relax. The journey time was efficient and the time flew by. The cleanliness of the train was exemplary - the sanitary facilities and the general condition of the carriage left nothing to be desired. In terms of value for money, the train journey was particularly impressive. The quality of the service was well balanced in relation to the ticket price. The various services on offer, such as the catering, contributed to a positive overall impression. The service on board was largely satisfactory. The staff were friendly and helpful. The only annoying thing was that a fellow traveller in front of me was listening to music too loudly. Nevertheless, this did not spoil my lasting impression, as the staff handled the situation professionally. The only downer was the lack of wifi at my seat, but this wasn't too serious as I was able to keep myself occupied elsewhere. All in all, the train journey from Dortmund to Hamburg was an extremely positive experience that impressed with its modern facilities, comfort, efficiency, cleanliness, fair price-performance ratio and good service.
