A few weeks ago, I travelled via ICE from Leipzig to Berlin. The journey was quite relaxing due to the comfortable seats and air conditioning. The toilets were also clean and everything had a good level of hygiene! Unfortunately, the wifi kept going down. I had to make a change to another train unfortunately and we also had to deal with some delay. The price is okay.
Pro
IconA good experience made
Cons
IconI could not experience anything negative
The journey from Leipzig to Berlin Hauptbahnhof was smooth. From the booking to the last stop. The staff were very friendly and pleasant, it was quiet and there was plenty of comfort on the train. During the journey it was wonderful to watch the scenery, there was a snack bar, wifi and electricity on the train. The toilet was clean and neatly designed. There was enough space so that you didn't feel cramped during the journey. I really liked this connection and would therefore like to recommend it.
Pro
IconVery relaxed train connection
Cons
IconOften unpunctual
I use this connection very often, as it is my way to work. The train is often unpunctual, for which I can only give four stars. However, I quickly reached the main station. It is definitely quicker than being stuck in a traffic jam by car. It takes me just under 40 minutes to get there. Unfortunately, there is no wifi and no electricity on the train. But there is a fresh air supply and enough light. The toilets are clean and the ticket is relatively cheap. It's definitely a quick route from Leipzig to Berlin central station.
Pro
IconComfortable
IconOn time
Cons
IconService
My train journey from Leipzig to Berlin was mostly positive and enjoyable. There were some outstanding aspects that enriched my experience. The food options on the train were varied and the food and drinks were of good quality. The train staff were friendly and helpful. They were available to answer questions and ensured that my stay on the train was comfortable and safe. The train itself was comfortable and well equipped. The seats were comfortable and there was enough space for luggage. The cleanliness on the train was good and the sanitary facilities were in acceptable condition. Departure and arrival were on time, which made planning and organisation easier. The train journey went smoothly and without any major delays. The scenery along the route was beautiful. I could enjoy picturesque views of green meadows, forests and rivers. It was a pleasant change from the urban hustle and bustle. However, the service was a bit unfriendly and harsh. Overall, my train journey from Leipzig to Berlin was a positive experience. The comfort, beautiful scenery, friendly train staff and on-time departure all contributed to making the journey enjoyable. I would definitely recommend this train route.

I recently travelled from Leipzig to Berlin Central Station. The price of this train journey totally convinced me! It was very reasonably priced. The service was excellent as the staff were very friendly and accommodating. One negative point of this trip was the facilities. The wifi didn't work and there were no power sockets either. However, the entire ICE was very clean and hygienic.
Pro
IconVery clean on the train
IconCourteous staff
IconDelicious on-board bistro
Cons
IconTrain very full
I am basically very satisfied with my journey from Leipzig to Berlin. The only drawback was that the train was relatively very full. Otherwise, the train staff were in a very good mood and made a very friendly impression on me. The train was decently cleaned and the rubbish bins were emptied. During the journey, I went to Sport Bistro to get a coffee and eat a small tarte flambée. I personally found the price-performance ratio in Bordbistro to be very coherent. All in all, a very good journey with punctual departure and arrival.

The train was very clean and sanitised inside. The seats were not dusty and there were no crumbs there. The cleanliness of the toilets was also adequate. Unfortunately, there was no one there to provide food. Also, it took a long time for the train to leave. I was able to charge my mobile phone.

The train journey was really very nice. I always had wifi and even two power sockets. The seats were really comfortable. They were very soft. Only unfortunately it was very noisy. I found that a pity. But I did get food from the staff. They were very friendly and even talked to me. I had a reservation option and received information. Fortunately, the toilets were clean. I did not have to change trains. The train also arrived on time. The price-performance ratio is OK. I would possibly buy the ticket again.

Cons
IconThe service
IconJourney duration was too long
IconToo expensive
The train journey from Berlin to Leipzig was unfortunately disappointing. The wifi barely worked, the service wasn't particularly friendly and the seats were uncomfortable. The cleanliness of the seats left a lot to be desired and the toilets weren't exactly clean either. Added to this was the poor price-performance ratio and the long journey time. All in all, it was an unpleasant experience and I would not recommend this train journey to anyone.
Pro
IconFast travelling time
Cons
IconUnpunctual departure
IconWifi is very poor
Travelling by ICE to Berlin is always pleasant. However, the internet connection is very poor during the journey. This often makes working very difficult. If you have a seat, the journey is pleasant and comfortable. Sometimes the trains depart late.
Pro
IconFast connection
IconUsable at any time
Cons
IconSometimes too late
IconSeat reservation usually necessary
I can only recommend the journey between Leipzig and Berlin, there is a power socket between the seat to charge a laptop, for example. The wifi connection in the ICE was also great, you could work in peace. Occasionally the connection was poor. However, this was due to the network and is completely fine. The staff were friendly and the connection is also super easy as you don't have to change trains. On my journey, the toilet was clean and the staff were very friendly.
