Unfortunately, the ICE was 30 minutes late. However, I quickly got a seat without a seat reservation. The wifi is very fast and free. The seats are very comfortable. Unfortunately, the sanitary facilities were very dirty and very outdated. The conductor was very friendly. It's worth it if you buy a saver ticket

My train arrived when it was supposed to (punctuality). I was in 1st class and it was even better than expected. I was served the whole time and the staff were very nice and asked me every now and then if I needed anything. I especially liked the food. The toilets were also clean. The wifi was also good. I can only recommend the ride as I got everything I expected and even more. Great ride!
Pro
IconVery hygienic
Contra
Iconsomewhat expensive
It was a great trip in 2nd class. One small negative point, and that was my ticket was a bit expensive, but it was definitely worth it in my opinion as I had very good wifi and plenty of space. I was in the large room and in the non-smoking zone. What I also liked was that they paid a lot of attention to hygiene and the toilets were clean. In addition, the services, super fast delivery were inexpensive and the food was super tasty. For all these reasons, it is a recommendable trip. In addition, the staff were very nice.
Pro

Contra
IconTrain was too late
There was one thing I didn't like and that was the delay of the train, but it wasn't that bad. Other than that, it was a great ride. I had wifi and a power socket at my seat. My seat was very comfortable and the train was very quiet. If you needed food, you could get it. The staff were very nice and you had a lot of things to order. What I found great was that we were always told when we were arriving and so on. It was also very clean on the train and especially the toilets were very clean. I didn't have to change trains and the price-performance ratio was great. A trip that I can definitely recommend.

I bought the tickets from Düsseldorf to Hamburg online for my friend and me, as it was quicker. Anyone who can travel with an ICE knows that these are the best trains. The wifi was free in the package and was also super strong. There were sockets at the seats and no problems there either. Of course, we had booked seats as well. The service was friendly, but the food was expensive. In between, we had to stop in the middle of the route because there were short disruptions. But we still arrived on time. So one can only be satisfied. Always happy to travel again with the ICE
Pro
IconIt was a pleasant trip
Contra
IconSeats not adjustable
I had business in Hamburg. That's why I took the Flixtrain from Düsseldorf main station to Hamburg main station. The online booking was relatively easy. The journey was very pleasant. The staff on the flixtrain were extremely friendly. The entertainment on the flixtrain was very good. The only drawback was that the seats could not be adjusted. Otherwise, I can recommend the flixtrain without reservation.
Pro
IconGood connection nice staff
Contra
IconNone
I found the journey in the flixtrain from Düsseldorf main station to Hamburg main station extremely pleasant. The staff as well as the train driver were very friendly. The entertainment in the train is also worth mentioning, which makes the journey not seem boring. The non-adjustable seats on the train were a little annoying. Otherwise, a great alternative to the Deutsche Bahn.

Contra
IconNothing
I recently took the train to Hamburg to visit a friend and I was really happy that the train ride was so pleasant. The staff were very friendly and kept the toilets clean. The train arrived without delay and the comfort on the train was also great. The seats were very well upholstered and equipped with a power socket and a waste bin. There was also more than stable wifi on the train. In general, I think the price was very reasonable.
Pro
IconReliability
Contra
IconNo
I'm taking the train from Düsseldorf to Hamburg again. So far, the trains have always been on time. If there are delays or changes to the timetable, you are informed in good time by email. As in all the trains I've been on, the seats are a bit cramped and unfortunately cannot be adjusted. The train has free wifi with on-board entertainment and a power socket at the seat. The on-board staff have always been helpful and friendly. There is nothing to complain about the cleanliness (including the toilet). Price performance is top here!
Pro
IconRelaxed ride
Contra
IconExpensive
Friendly staff, relatively clean but too few toilets. Food and drink can be bought but very expensive. Price-performance ratio is ok, but too expensive to use it often. Seating is good and there are power sockets. However, very poor to no wifi which is a shame.
Pro
IconClean
Contra
IconPunctuality
I generally enjoy travelling by train, but this journey exceeded all my expectations. The sanitary facilities and seats were spotlessly clean. And there was a very relaxed atmosphere. The network connection was also exceptionally good and reliable. The only thing I can criticise was that the train was about 20 minutes late. I give the journey 5 stars.
