IconNot enough legroom for me personally
My train journey from Frankfurt to Zurich was really great and provided an all-round pleasant travelling experience. The interior of the train was modern and functional, especially the comfortable seats and the possibility to use the wifi during the journey increased my comfort. Only the legroom was a bit limited due to my long legs, but that was the only bad thing about this journey. The general comfort on board was nevertheless satisfactory. The seats were comfortable and the quiet ride made for a relaxed atmosphere. The outstanding service during the journey was particularly commendable. The staff were always friendly, attentive and helpful, which made my journey very enjoyable. The cleanliness of the train was exemplary. Both the seating areas and the sanitary facilities were cleaned regularly, which contributed to a hygienic environment. In terms of value for money, I felt the train journey was reasonable. The amenities and service provided justified the fare and the balance between cost and services contributed positively to the overall experience. Despite the limited legroom, the train journey from Frankfurt to Zurich was really great. The modern facilities, satisfactory comfort, excellent service, cleanliness and good value for money make this train connection a recommended option for travellers with perhaps slightly smaller legs.

The train journey from Frankfurt to Zurich was great. The modern facilities were very pleasant. There were power sockets at the seat and internet. The seats were also comfortable and there was plenty of legroom. The whole train was in very good shape and the toilets were very hygienic. The service was very nice and satisfactory. In terms of journey time, the train also arrived on time and there was little delay during the journey. The only small issue was the possible expensive ticket, which could be quite expensive for other passengers, but for me it was not a problem. Great journey, very environmentally friendly and highly recommended.
