IconThe toilets not so clean
My ICE journey from Frankfurt to Berlin was satisfactory overall. The seats were clean and comfortable, the internet worked smoothly and the availability of power sockets was handy. Fortunately, the train arrived on time, which made planning easier. Unfortunately, there were some drawbacks as the toilets were not as clean as one would like and the staff seemed nervous during the journey, which affected the atmosphere somewhat. Another important point is the ticket price, which is rather high. Overall, it was an acceptable trip but with room for improvement in terms of cleanliness and professionalism of the staff.

IconCleanliness of the WCs
My train journey by ICE from Frankfurt am Main main station to Berlin was on the whole an impressive experience. The speed of the train was definitely the highlight of this trip. The rapid movement of the train enabled me to cover the distance in the shortest time. It's not worth driving a car anymore! However, there was also one negative aspect that somewhat marred my experience...: The cleanliness of the toilets definitely leaves something to be desired. Despite the modern design of the beautiful ICE, the toilet looked. really looked like a train station toilet in the truest sense of the word. I was not used to this from an ICE. The seats on the train were very comfortable and I had plenty of opportunities to charge my laptop and mobile phone as there were enough sockets. All in all, the train ride from Frankfurt, Main Hauptbahnhof to Berlin, Hauptbahnhof, with the ICE offered me a good opportunity to get a long distance over with as quickly as possible. With an improved cleaning of the sanitary facilities, I would otherwise have nothing further to address. The next trip is already planned. See you soon

I absolutely enjoyed my train journey from Frankfurt am Main to Berlin. I find it very good that there is a direct connection between these two major cities. The journey time is much shorter than a car journey and also much more comfortable. We arrived on time and the train journey was generally trouble-free. You have enough space at your seat for your personal belongings and you sit very comfortably during the train ride. The train was quite full, but as I had booked a seat reservation, this was not a problem for me.

I recently had the pleasure of travelling by train from Frankfurt to Berlin and was overall very satisfied with my experience.

Compared to other means of transport, with the plane quite competitive. Booking was easy and the whole process went smoothly. The range of different ticket options allowed me to choose one that suited me and was more attractively priced. In terms of comfort, where the train a pleasant travel experience. The seats were comfortable and spacious enough to feel at ease throughout the journey. Ability to lie on during the journey was very pleasant.

Pro
IconYou are usually quickly on the spot
IconOne travels comfortably
IconYou can occupy yourself with other things while driving
Cons
IconUnfortunately, the train is late more often
IconPoor internet on board
The seats in the ICE were comfortable in the 6-seater compartment, but unfortunately also a bit cramped. There was a small table by the window that prevented my seat neighbour from standing up, so I had to stand up with him every time he went to the toilet, for example. The noise level was okay, considering that there were a lot of football fans. There was, unfortunately bad, wifi and also a power socket directly at my seat. This time the train was even on time, I was not checked during the entire journey time, although I had not checked myself in online. The cleanliness of the compartment was good, the toilets were also okay. Only the price....I had used a Bahncard 50, the price was definitely way too expensive for that, but as I said.... Football supply and demand

IconVery clean
Cons
IconThe train was late
IconTicket prices far too high
My train journey from Frankfurt to Berlin was quite nice. The exceptional cleanliness on the train was very pleasant. The seats were not only comfortable, but also well upholstered. The train's modern equipment with wifi and power sockets was also extremely practical. The service on board was always friendly and attentive, which had a really positive impact on the journey. Unfortunately, however, there were two aspects that made the journey worse. The journey took longer than expected as the train was delayed. In addition, the ticket price for such train journeys is generally far too expensive in my opinion. The ticket price must fall. Even the high petrol prices would be more worthwhile here. Despite these points, I still consider travelling by train to be a recommendable option, as it is very environmentally friendly.
