Overview

Germany’s geography is a myriad of majestic mountains, rolling countrysides, and cosmopolitan cities.

Germany’s geography—a myriad of majestic mountains, rolling countrysides, and cosmopolitan cities—makes rail travel highly convenient—and captivating. There’s an abundance of places worth a visit, including Berlin, Munich, Hamburg, Cologne, and Frankfurt. All are interconnected by an efficient hi-speed train system that also includes Frankfurt airport. So you can easily transfer from your transatlantic flight to cities in a 300-mile radius—that’s less than 2 hours ! Other European connections are readily available, including Paris, Brussels, Vienna, and Zurich.

German’s ICE (Inter City Express) train is renowned not only for its speed, but for its high-tech and outrageously comfortable accommodations as well. We give an enthusiastic “Yes !” to First Class, with its large, plush leather seats. Plus, the newest ICE trains also feature individual video entertainment systems, and a glass separation between the driver’s cabin and the passenger area. So you can head to the front of the train to truly experience a rail ride (at 186 mph !) like no other. ICE trains also contain a traditional restaurant-car where you can enjoy a warm meal on a dressed table.

City Night Line, Germany’s night trains, are also world-famous. These “hotel on wheels” offer private rooms with bathroom facilities and showers. One night’s sleep will take you anywhere in Germany and even as far as Rome, Paris, Amsterdam, and Vienna.

Some German trains require a reservation which you should purchase in advance. And all are connected to regional trains should you want to further explore the country (highly recommended). Reservations, when available, are included when you purchase a ticket from Rail Europe. If you purchase a pass, you must purchase your reservation separately.

    Christmas Vacation from USA |
    "The train ride was very good except for the luggage aspect. If you have multiple bags (which people from the US on a long trip may have) then it's difficult to find space to store your luggage and no one is assigned to help out. There were many people who didn't have seats. Thankfully, my wife and I booked assigned seats. "

    Travel by Rail Europe |
    "It was a fantastic ride from Frankfurt to Koblenz and from Koblenz to Luxembourg. It was very convenient and in time. The outside view was an enjoyment for our eyes. My wife was with me and she enjoyed a lot. Thanks to Rail Europe. The only draw bag is the ticket booking. We booked our ticket through internet, but we have to collect the ticket from another place. It should be like airline tickets which is issued immediately. "

    Straightforward trip |
    "The tickets came on time although you may wish to consider online tickets :) The train was fairly easy to find. It was a busy service but fairly comfortable. The wifi was terrible and it stopped at one station for so long, I think I could have walked the entire length of the train a few times ! "

    Fantastic |
    "The only way to travel in Europe, no security checks, no arriving two hours before departing, comfortable seats, fantastic service. Fares were very reasonable for first class travel. We wish it was that easy to travel in Canada. "
