I travelled the route with the Deutschland Ticket, so I don't have an extra ticket. The train offers wifi, but no power sockets. The service is very friendly. And the trains are usually clean. Because of the Deutschland Ticket, the price-performance ratio is great.
IconEasy to buy.
There was wifi as well as power sockets on the train, a seat was also available, even without a reservation. The journey was pleasant and OK. You could travel through without having to change trains. The staff were friendly and willing to help if you needed anything. The toilets were clean for the most part. All in all, it was a good ride.
