Overview

Berlin - Warsaw Express

As Berlin and other eastern European cities continue to become more hip and modern travel destinations, so do the trains that pass through. The high speed Berlin-Warsaw Express whisks travelers between Berlin, Frankfurt, Warsaw, and Poznan several times per day.

The train is operated jointly by Deustche-Bahn (DB), the German national railway company, and PKP, the Polish State Railways. The modern cars offer reclining seats, air conditioned carriages, and trolley service (snacks and drinks) to first class travelers, while those in second class can enjoy comfortable seats and access to the onboard restaurant car.

This train can be booked up to 60 days in advance, and tickets are issued in a paper format, to be shown to the train conductor once travelers are onboard. A tip for budget-conscious travelers : try traveling during an off-peak hour (not morning or evening rush hours) for the best fares.

Make the most of your trip along this historical route in the most modern way : high-speed style on the Berlin-Warsaw Express !

    Comfortable trip |
    "Although this was a 5 1/2 hour trip, the convenience of going from city center to city center made it much better than flying. The compartment was comfortable, but there were only 3 of us in a 6 person compartment. It may have been less comfortable if it were full. The ride was smooth and we arrived on time. Buying tickets ahead of time was very easy online and they were sent to my home by 2-day air. "

    "Hi As you are aware we left Berlin Lichtenbe station to Warsaaw by the Berlin Warsaw Express. We had long delay as the train broke down closer to the polish boarder and had to wait almost 3 hours for the next train engine from Berlin. This prevented us an evening in Warsaw where we had a Dinner. The train engine was a old locomotive engine and slow. On our return journey it was a express train without the locomotive engine. "

    "This was not a very pleasant train ride ! The train smelled really bad like old urine. We had to leave the door of the compartment open for some fresh air When I booked this on line I wanted to go to the Central Train station in Warsaw but the train stop before this and we had to take a taxi to the hotel which was close to the central train station. It was not that hard but did cause some added cost and time. I thought it said to Warsaw Central but will double check from now on. I have booked with Rail Europe before and will use it again. "

    "Good easy trip, hard to travel with big suitcases... sit with group of 6 strange people. No English ! n "

  • Quite good experience |
    "The trip was good, the train on time, everything OK. The only suggestion I have is the following : I have ordered the train ticket online but it was not possible to print them and I had to wati for the ticket by post. This is an inconvenient that you should solve. You should make possible to order, pay and print the tickets online. All the rest was very good ! Patrizia Bugatti "

    "Cheap and quick way to travel. Very nice clean carriage ! Would recommend as an alternative to flying over these type of distances. No waiting in an airport, just straight on with the journey. I will use this service again in the near future ! "
