I bought a small holiday ticket from Munich to Paris for myself and my best friend from Deutsche Bahn. The price was not that high and the route looked pleasant. We got the information at an information desk at the station and bought the tickets there. We booked seats separately. The journey actually went very pleasantly super, the staff took great care of the guests. The wifi and sockets worked great, we didn't have any negative experiences with them. The hygiene in the train and in the toilet was super clean and you felt comfortable. We arrived at our destination on time. I'll be honest, we haven't had such a pleasant journey on a German train in a long time and I can only give it five stars.

I recently had the opportunity to travel by train from Munich to Paris and I have to say that I have mixed feelings overall. On the one hand, the journey was very comfortable and I had enough space to stretch out and rest. The train also had a good entertainment system on board, so I wasn't bored. On the other hand, I have to say that the price of the trip was not very cheap. I found that I paid a lot more than I expected and that disappointed me a bit. The food on board was also not very good and quite expensive, so I would have preferred to bring my own food if I had known that the options were so limited. All in all, the train journey from Munich to Paris was pleasant overall, but the price was unfortunately not that attractive. If you are looking for a comfortable journey, the train could be a good option, but keep in mind that you will pay more than you expect.

The train journey from Munich to Paris was pleasant overall, but unfortunately the price of the journey was not very reasonable. The train was on time and comfortable, with comfortable seats and enough legroom. There was also enough space for luggage and a toilet on board. However, the pricing for the ride was quite high compared to other modes of transport. There was also no option to buy a ticket at a reduced price, which was a big disadvantage for me. Overall, the train journey from Munich to Paris was enjoyable, but I think you have better options for the price. It is possible that there are better deals if you plan further in advance or are more flexible with travel dates. Nevertheless, the trip was a good experience overall, but I will probably choose a different method of transport next time.
Pro
Iconcheap
It was a very great trip, it's incredible that I got from country to country for such a price. Moreover, the trip was just great because the staff treated you very well. It was really easy to fall asleep because they had beds as seats. The food was delicious and everything was hygienically very clean. The wifi was top notch and I had multiple access to electricity. A great trip and a very great life experience that I am very happy to pass on.
Pro
IconVery nice staff
This was the longest train journey of my life and I liked everything. The staff was very nice and tried to fulfil all the passengers' wishes. I had no problems at all with the wifi as it was on full bars all the time and I had several sockets at my seat. The seats were in the shape of beds so it was very easy to fall asleep. Everything was very clean and was cleaned again during the train journey. It was an important experience to travel such a long journey. I can only pass it on as I felt like I was at home.
Pro
Iconvery comfortable
It was one of the longest, if not the longest and best train rides of my life. I honestly felt like I was at home and the kicker is that my ticket was 100% free as I had won it in a competition and the journey had left no negative impressions at all, I had liked everything. What I liked most was how comfortable it was. The staff were very nice and the food was delicious. There was a lot of choice. The hygiene was great, disinfectants and so on. The train also came on time and I was always informed where I was. Everything was just right. I can recommend the trip 100%. Great trip!

The train's equipment was modern and comfortable. The seats were comfortable and had enough space. There were power sockets and wifi on board, which was very convenient. The cleanliness of the train was of a high standard. There were no visible stains or mess. The service on board was friendly and helpful. The train staff went out of their way to satisfy all passengers. Overall, the train journey was very pleasant. The wifi was fast and the train was on time.

IconSocket did not work in my seat
I really have to give a lot of praise. The train arrived on time and was very clean, both the seats and the toilet. The free wifi worked great and the conductor was very nice. In addition, the seats were much more comfortable than in my car and the temperature in the train was also very pleasant. What I didn't like so much was that the socket on my seat didn't work and I had to charge my mobile phone at the neighbour's. I was very happy with that.

Contra
IconTrain was a little late.
I remember that train journey very well because it was free. I had great wifi and had no wifi problems at all. The service was great and the food was very tasty and freshly delivered. I don't need to write about the price, as it was free because I won a prize in a draw. I can recommend it to everyone as it was great. Paris is also a very beautiful city. The heaters were also on.
Pro
IconQuick and uncomplicated
Contra
IconThe bar was closed
The train was on time and the conductors were very helpful, as it was not immediately obvious which was the right seat. The wifi was straightforward and one socket in a double seat is enough if you don't both have to work at the same time. The train was clean and the seats comfortable. I did not use the toilet. I think the price-performance ratio is great for the route. The only thing that wasn't so good was the closed bar. So you couldn't buy anything to drink during the journey and you weren't told why this wasn't possible.
