The InterCity Express (ICE) is the high-speed train operated by Deutsche Bahn - the German railway company. These trains operate across Germany connecting cities such as Hamburg, Cologne, Frankfurt, Berlin and Munich to name just a few. With international connections in Switzerland, Austria and the Netherlands and traveling at speeds of up to 300km/h the modern ICE trains are one of the fastest ways to travel by train in Germany and its neighboring countries.
If a speedy journey is important to you then the ICE Sprinter, the latest generation of ICE trains, is the best option. The ICE Sprinter runs every morning and evening during rush hour and guarantees a fast connection with direct routes between many German cities. Onboard most ICE trains the restaurant serves breakfast, à la carte main dishes and in some cases may have German regional specialties. The bar/bistro has a large variety of snacks and beverages on offer. Travelers receive a complimentary snack and soft drink.
