ICE 3neo: for greater comfort in train travel
More about the ICE 3neo (in German)

The first generation
The era of high-speed services started when the ICE 1 was launched in 1991. The dining car with the "hump" makes it easy to recognise.
The flexible one
The second generation made its debut in 1996. Two trains could be coupled together.
The first train for travelling at 300 km/h
The ICE 3 set a new standard in 2000 by reaching a top speed of 300 km/h.
The new ICE
Enjoy travelling in comfort thanks to our trains' new ergonomic seats, more space for storing luggage, family areas, children's areas and quiet zones.
King of the curve
The ICE T went into service in 1999. Its tilting technology lets it tackle twisting lines with ease.
The fast and relaxed way to your destination
The ICE Sprinter offers the fastest connection between Germany's major cities.
No additional payment for luggage
You can bring luggage with you without the need to reserve space. Please use the luggage storage facilities on the train.
Surf and work on board
