I took the ICE from Vienna to Berlin. Especially now during the holiday season, the motorway from Austria to Germany is very busy, so it's a good idea to take the train. You don't have to wait as long as you would by car and it's also environmentally friendly. You don't even notice the heat on the train thanks to the air conditioning. Cleanliness was fine except for the rubbish that was not emptied.

The journey in the ICE from Vienna to Berlin started on time. The seats are reasonably comfortable and equipped with a power socket. To make sure you really have an assigned seat, it is advisable to pay the small extra charge and make a seat reservation. In terms of value for money, I think it's a shame that it's much cheaper to travel the same distance by plane.

The train journey from Vienna to Berlin was positive overall. The staff were very nice, the wifi worked flawlessly and the seats were extremely comfortable and well maintained. Hygiene was exemplary, which had a positive impact on the travelling experience, as the toilets were very clean and well maintained. However, there were some challenges. The need to change trains made the journey a little complicated. The train did not arrive on time, which affected the timetable. The volume on the train was also not always appropriate. Despite these minor weaknesses, the positive experience outweighed the negative, thanks to the friendly staff, the reliable wifi connection and the excellent seating comfort.
