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!

    "Excellent service although all the tickets booked through Raileurope we received the worst seats available. Either no windows (the panel seats) and/or facing backwards. W booked early and though we would get better seats. Rest of service was excellent. "

    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. "

    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. "

    Trip to Brussels  |
    "My wife and I traveled to Brussels from Amsterdam by RailEurope We found it great to just set back and relax,much more comfortable the flying,plenty of leg room and the sets were very comfortable! we choose first class and that's what we got it was great and so was the breakfast. We would differently train it again. "

    Smooth Trip To Bruxelles |
    "It was a very smooth trip to Bruxelles and good value for Money. The leg room was a bit tight hence not 5 Stars for comfort. Also as the storage facilities for suitcases was so small all the suitcases were piled up in the exit, and yes it would be the side we have to get off onto the platform!! "

    The train trip wasn’t the prob |
    "The train service is brilliant. I won't travel across Europe any other way in future. The only problem is Paris. Why they don't have a central station, I will never know. If you have to change trains, you most likely have to change stations as well. We had 1 hour to travel to the other station. We made it by less than a minute. The schedule didn't allow for the terrible Paris traffic. "
