Our wifi network is not just available on trains in Germany: travellers to Austria, France, Belgium, the Netherlands and Switzerland can also enjoy internet access throughout their journeys. Passengers can use the free wifi in both first class and second class.
Using our free wifi network is so easy
Enable wifi on your device.
Select either the WIFIonICE or WIFI@DB network.
A login page will automatically open on some devices. If no login page appears, type one of these URLs into your browser and then press Enter: LogIn.WIFIonICE.de or WIFI.bahn.de.
The login option will automatically appear on the landing page. Accept the general terms and conditions and click the red button.
Please note: The only difference between the WIFIonICE and WIFI@DB networks is their names. Both networks give you the same internet access.
Internet throughout your journey
Once you have logged in, you have continuous access to WIFI@DB at selected stations as well as on trains and buses. Thanks to this, you can use DB's free wifi network from the moment you board to the moment you disembark.
How it works:
When you travel, simply connect to DB's company-wide WIFI@DB network like normal. You do not need to log in again when you board an ICE or IC service, or when you change trains. Our system automatically recognises that you have already logged in using your device, so it then connects you to the internet straight away.
Wifi is available on board all of our ICE trains, on some of our IC trains and on selected regional trains. We are gradually rolling out wifi for our entire long-distance fleet.
Yes. Free wifi is available on all of these connections. You can keep surfing even as you cross international borders and stay connected in Austria, Switzerland, France, Belgium and the Netherlands.
At the moment, there are two names: the familiar WIFIonICE and the new network name WIFI@DB. Both will remain in use for a period of time. There is no difference between the two networks: they both provide the same access to wifi. You can switch between them if you like, as this has no impact on the level of service.

We want to give customers even easier access to the internet across DB's different facilities and services, so we are now using a single, company-wide wifi network name: WIFI@DB. Our system now automatically logs you back in when possible.
Wherever you see the company-wide network WIFI@DB, you can use DB's wifi service for your entire journey and do not need to log in repeatedly as you travel, i.e. if you change trains or call to a DB Lounge. We are currently rolling out this seamless function which gives you automatic access to our wifi as you move between DB trains (all ICEs and a growing number of ICs, as well as selected regional trains), our DB Lounges and stations. Whenever you see the SSID WIFI@DB, you can use it. Simply use this SSID to log on and you won't have to do it again during your journey.
Deactivate your device's wifi and reactivate it again.
Connect your device to either of the WIFI@DB or WIFIonICE networks again. The login page should automatically appear after a moment.
If the login page does not open, you can call it up in your browser by entering one of the two URLs in the address bar: WIFI.bahn.de or login.WIFIonICE.de. Then press Enter.
The wifi network on our trains is a public network, similar to the system used in hotels. In the case of public networks, it is not possible to guarantee that communication is completely protected against interception.
Our wifi system includes a range of security features (including client isolation, which prevents one device in the network from accessing data on another device in the same network) that makes data transfer safer than in similar wifi networks in cafés and other public places.
If you want to want to ensure that your connection is completely safe, particularly if you are working with sensitive data, we recommend using a VPN and only accessing https websites.
