Pro
IconVery sympathetic staff
This was my outward journey in second class, which was great. My train arrived on time, exactly when it was supposed to arrive and it was relatively cold on the train, but there was air conditioning which made sure we were warm. The toilets were very clean and the wifi was so good that I had no problems at all. The ride is really highly recommended as there was also a lot of attention paid to hygiene. Great ride!
Pro
IconOn time
Cons
IconWeak wifi
Relaxed, punctual and above all direct connection from Munich to Berlin. Unfortunately also on this route: poor wifi connection and also via LTE not a good enough network to work. This time, no problems in the dining car and most importantly: friendly staff who kept pointing out the obligation to wear a mask and still didn't get stressed). But: With BahnCard50 and Super Sparpreis, I still paid € 94.30... A lot of money compared to a flight connection.
Pro
IconThe train had a very modern and beautiful look.
Cons
IconIn my opinion, everyone was totally super.
First of all, I would like to mention that I travelled alone and in 2nd class. The journey was totally great. The train arrived on time and departed exactly when it was supposed to (refers to the train ticket). I would also like to mention that the service was great: the food was delivered quickly and freshly, and the prices were reasonable. Then I want to write something about the toilets: they were very clean and very modern. I also had great wifi and it was very nice inside the train. The view from the train was also great. A very recommendable trip.
Pro
IconHotspot
Cons
Iconeverything was great!
Before I write something else, I want to write this:That was a great action! That was awesome! It's about the fact that the wifi was down, but we were still provided with a mobile hotspot, which was awesome. Fortunately, we didn't have to change to a different one and the heaters worked in the cold season. In addition, all the staff were nice and had their masks on, so hygiene was taken care of at the same time. I can only pass it on. Greetings go out to the nice driver.
Pro
IconAir conditioning
The trip was very nice because everything inside is nice, clean, spacious, uninterrupted it internet. I didn't even realise where I was going until I had my drink because it was better than my train journey before, I would do it again and can recommend it. I was also very warm as the heaters had worked great. I was totally thrilled as I had a massage seat in 2nd class, which was awesome. The trip is definitely recommendable.
Pro
Iconsympathetic staff
This trip was great. Also, the atmosphere was really cool. I went at noon and honestly I went because of the football match. On the train I had wifi and multiple access to electricity. I had a very comfortable massage seat. The train was quiet anyway and if you needed food, you got it. The toilets were clean and hygienic and the atmosphere on the train was cool, the train was on time and I didn't have to change trains. I can definitely recommend it as it was very cheap. Great train ride.
Pro
IconTrain was on time
Cons
Iconsomewhat expensive
On the train I had wifi and multiple access to electricity. My seat was very comfortable and the train was very quiet. If you needed food, you also got it. I can recommend it because the staff were very nice. The service was great and we were always told when we were arriving. The toilets were clean. In general, 4 out of 5 stars as it was a bit more expensive than other train rides. Great ride!
Pro
IconOn time
Cons
IconPoor wifi
IconDirty seats
I took the ICE from Munich to Berlin. First of all, I have to say that the wifi there was pretty bad. The seats were also dirty. However, the staff there were very nice. The best thing about this trip, however, was that the train was not delayed at all. Both on arrival and departure. The toilets there were pretty clean though. On the whole, there were positive as well as negative aspects. However, the price was too expensive. Therefore, not recommended for people with less money.
Pro
IconGood wifi reception
Cons
IconThe product has no weaknesses
Overall, it can be said that the trip was very nice. There was excellent mobile phone reception and also a power outlet to charge electronic devices. The staff was very friendly. Which made for a pleasant atmosphere. The whole section was clean, so there was good hygiene. Therefore, I can only recommend the journey by train from Munich to Berlin to everyone.
Pro
IconEnvironmentally friendly
Cons
IconTravel time vs flight
I took the ICE from Munich to Berlin - and I would recommend it at any time. My train was on time and I was able to travel through without changing trains. I didn't sit on my reserved seat - but only because I sat one row behind to have a 2-seater for myself. At midday during the week, even during the Oktoberfest, it wasn't crowded and therefore very pleasant. Wifi was available from time to time, but especially for work, you shouldn't continue to do anything for which you are dependent on the internet.
Pro
IconPunctuality
IconComfort
IconGood wifi
The trip went really well and left me with a very positive overall impression. For this reason, this journey gets five out of five stars and I recommend it to others. The train arrived on schedule and I boarded. As soon as I boarded, I noticed that the train was clean. My seat was very comfortable. The wifi was good. It was a good journey.
Pro
IconComfortable
IconFriendliness
IconSpeed
Cons
IconWIFI
IconSockets
IconHygiene
The staff on the train are very friendly and helpful. Travelling on the ICE is very comfortable and fast. The seats in 1st class are super comfortable and you can sit very well even on longer journeys. There is enough legroom, even for taller people. What is not so good, however, is the cleanliness of the tables at the seats and also in the toilets. The wifi is very often disconnected and a new connection has to be established again and again.
Pro
IconVery clean
IconGood equipment
IconSatisfactory service
Cons
IconPoor comfort
IconLong journey time
IconPoor price-performance ratio
IconLittle legroom
IconI couldn't work well despite the equipment
The train journey from Munich to Hamburg was really disappointing. The seats on the train were totally uncomfortable and I had the feeling that they hadn't been refurbished for ages. The lack of legroom didn't make things any better, and I found the fact that there wasn't even wifi or power sockets really backward. The train seemed outdated overall and the journey was anything but pleasant. Jerky and uncomfortable. The selection of snacks and drinks was limited, and what was available could be better obtained elsewhere. The service on board was rather poor. The staff did not seem particularly motivated and appeared to have little interest in the needs of the passengers. If you asked a question, you were met with an annoyed shrug of the shoulders rather than a helpful answer. Cleanliness on the train? Well, there's not much positive to say. The seats and the area around me looked as if they had seen better days. The journey time was longer than expected and the timetable was not adhered to. That didn't exactly improve the mood. In terms of value for money, it was a real letdown. The price was simply too high for what was, or rather wasn't, on offer. All in all, the train journey from Munich to Berlin was quite a disappointment for me personally, and I hope that things will improve in the future.

The journey was in 2019, we were travelling by ICE, electricity was all available, wifi was okay for a train, food was always available in the restaurant. However, the toilets were not very clean. We travelled about 7 hours from Munich to Berlin. The price for the train journey was okay. A clear recommendation.

Travelling by ICE is very comfortable and super fast. DB staff are always friendly and helpful. The seats in 1st class are super comfortable and you can sit very comfortably even on longer journeys. There is plenty of legroom and they are also suitable for taller passengers. Unfortunately, the cleanliness leaves a lot to be desired. The tables are sticky and the toilets are dirty.
