Reviews & ratings Frankfurt - Basel
Ice trains are more comfortable
Very comfortable coaches, smooth ride, on time, helpful staff with a smile.
Our trip on the ICE Train from Basel to Frankfurt in first class was fantastic. The seats were very comfortable, the train very clean and the service on board was great. The only fault we could find was that there were no announcements at the station in English and we nearly missed our train when they changed the platform number at the last minute. Only that we asked a fellow passenger who could speak English what the announcer had said we would still be standing on the station. Thank you Rail Europe for a wonderful trip. Len
We love to travel by train/ICE in Germany.. We traveled second class recently as we were trying to stretch our money. The trains were always on time even during the recent floods, We had some problems finding our coach but by the end of our travel we had it right. I really wished the coffee card would have gone through the train more often. We had a very pleasant experience traveling by train in Germany and I would highly recommend train travel.
Berlin HBF is new, clean and efficient. Waiting for the train was easy as there are lots of shops and food options and the toilets are very clean (as all were throughout Germany). The train was also very clean, the staff were good, and it left and arrived on time.
