Overview

Lederhosen traditional costume and Sauerkraut are only a part of Germany, but looking beyond the folklore, you will discover the great diversity of Germany.

Germany is a leader in rail transport in Europe. With over 41,000 km of railway tracks, trains go everywhere in Germany. The national rail company of Germany is known as the Deutsche Bahn (DB). The German high speed trains are called ICE (InterCity Express). The ICE trains mostly operate locally, however they do operate on some international routes to the Netherlands, Belgium, Switzerland, Austria, France and Denmark. Other trains which operate in Germany are the EuroCity which are international long-distance trains, the Intercity which are national long-distance trains and the EuroNight which are international night trains.

Cityscape

Head East Germany and enjoy the arty Berlin or the lively harbor of Hamburg. Hop on train to the west and admire the majestic gothic cathedral of Cologne. If you like Middle Ages, go south to visit the medieval city of Heidelberg. You should also experience the eclectic Munich.

Landscape

In the Middle Rhine Valley, board on a cruise and see the Unesco-listed area with its vine landscapes. If you’re more after undulating views, you should go hiking in the Black Forest or in the Hunsrück. Then take a train to Upper Bavaria and enjoy the chocolate-box villages and the otherworldly castles.

Take Home

If you go trekking to the Black Forest, bring back traditional souvenirs such as the Cuckoo clocks. Fond of good pastries? Find some Marzepan from Lüsbeck, just delightful. To go shopping, board a train to Munich or Düsseldorf, that provide a lot of boutiques.

Eat & Drink

Taste some beers like the golden Pilsener or the dark Altbier. Among the typical food, test the sauerkraut (meat and pickled cabbage), the famous currywurst (curry sausage) from Berlin or, if you stay in the north of Germany, try the herring-type rollmops.

New Perspective

On your way from Cologne to Koblenz, a very old and touristic city, you’ll have an amazing view on castles and vineyard of the Rhine Valley from the Ehrenbreitstein fortress, don’t forget your camera!

    Comfortable, but mixed review |
    "It was not clear online that wifi is only provided once we crossed the border into Germany. Wifi also did not work on my connecting ICE train between Frankfurt and Munich, which was a disappointment as I needed to contact those meeting me upon my arrival. There were no lockers for my suitcase, despite it being advertised online so I had to keep it next to me as was too big to go overhead. Otherwise, a nice, yet expensive for value, experience. "

    Across the Alps |
    "Our trip from Vienna to Innsbruck by rail was excellent. Very few passengers in our coach meant plenty of empty seats and windows to view out of. The countryside was beautiful. One minute you are looking at open farmland, the next mountain tops covered in snow. The four and half hours disappeared quickly, from boarding the train in Vienna and the next you are alighting in Innsbruck. I would recommend this train trip to any traveler fortunate enough to be holidaying in Austria. Both Vienna and Innsbruck are two cities you need to put in your must visit. "

    Hamburg to Nurnberg |
    "The train was comfortable and was on time. We found the Wi-Fi useful too. There was not enough room for our luggage and these had to be kept in the entrance foyer of the carriage so I found myself having to get up at every stop to make sure they were not in the way of entering and exiting passengers. other passengers had theirs in corridors, so additional luggage space would be beneficial. Also we found that there was a conflict of seat numbers as there was someone in one of our seats when we boarded and during the course of the trip another passenger had the same seat number as us and the train guard was called to sort it out. These things made the trip a little awkward but apart from this the trip was pleasurable. "

    "The best way to get to Edinburgh. Good price tickets, seat not super spacious but with no one sitting next to me and train mostly empty it was fine. It would be wise to avoid 2nd class at peak times though. "
