The ICE. Deutsche Bahn's fastest train
The ICE (Intercity-Express) is the fastest and most comfortable way of travelling on the Deutsche Bahn network, reaching speeds of up to 320 km/h, and new standards of excellence.
Deutsche Bahn's first ICE made its debut in 1991 and operates
between several major European cities including international
destinations in Switzerland, Austria, Belgium, and the Netherlands.
Platform interchanges from ICE to ICE are possible at many stations
without long walking distances in between. The comfort and
convenience of the ICE are sure to win you over. ICE trains are
fully air-conditioned and have a low noise level.
During the journey you can leave your luggage in one of the ICE lockers in the vestibules, e.g. when visiting the on-Board-Restaurant. The deposit will be returned to you when you remove your luggage. The service crew on the train also takes orders for taxis or porters. The taxi or porter will then be waiting for you when you reach your destination.
Some 1st Class coaches feature individual video screens at the seat. Almost all 1st and 2nd Class seats have an integrated audio connection. You can choose between three radio stations and the ICE programmes which feature classical music/jazz, rock/pop and the children's channel. Electric sockets for laptops or DVD players can be found in many 1st class carriages.
