The train journey from Frankfurt to Heidelberg with IC 2393 was unfortunately not so pleasant. The train looked outdated and not particularly clean. The seats were worn and uncomfortable.

My journey from Frankfurt to Heidelberg by train on 25 June 2022 was a great experience! The comfort of the seats, the pleasant air conditioning and the sufficient power sockets were all very appropriate. I was really impressed with the train's facilities, especially the free WiFi connection, which was very useful for my day-to-day work. The friendliness and helpfulness of the staff in the service area was also on a very high level. However, there were some minor drawbacks in terms of hygiene on the train. There were some unclean areas, such as the toilet. Overall, I can say that the price-performance ratio proved to be worthwhile. I would choose this route again and again and would be happy to recommend it to other people.
