Intercity and Eurocity Trains

The trains

Faster than regional trains, IC and EC trains connect major cities, reaching speeds of 200 km/h. Both Intercity and Eurocity trains run frequently, either every hour or every two hours depending on the destination. Intercity trains run exclusively in Germany, while Eurocity trains reach neighbouring European countries. Both trains are very comfortable and offer many amenities that are sure to satisfy.

New: 1st class passengers can now reserve seats in quiet zones or mobile phone areas on all IC double-deck trains as well as all IC/EC trains with DB rolling stock.

Gastronomy on board

Almost all Intercity or Eurocity trains have a Boardrestaurant and/or a Boardbistro. The Intercity trains of Deutsche Bahn have been recently updated to include electric outlets at table seats of the center aisle in coaches of both classes. Eurocity trains consist partly of carriages from neighbouring train companies and may vary in terms of facilities.
