Overview

Look beyond the Sauerkraut and Lederhosen and discover Germany’s refreshing diversity.

The national railway company of Germany is known as the Deutsche Bahn (DB). Germany has over 41,000 km of railway network. Train tickets for trains operating in Germany can be booked in advance. International trains connect Germany with neighbouring countries such as France and Switzerland. Book train tickets to visit main cities of Germany by train. German cities including Berlin, Munich and Leipzig are all served by trains.

Cityscape

Stay east for history-packed, arty Berlin and visit up-and-coming Leipzig. Stroll around Hamburg’s harbour, admire Dresden’s opera house, and capture Weimar’s classical cityscape. Head west for Cologne’s Gothic cathedral and Frank Gehry-graced Düsseldorf. Travel by train to Germany’s south to medieval Heidelberg and eclectic Munich.

Landscape

Cruise the UNESCO-listed vine-clad Middle Rhine Valley or hike the Black Forest in the southwest. Explore the hilly, unspoilt countryside of the Hunsrück or travel south by train to Germany’s Upper Bavaria where fairytale castles, chocolate-box villages and the mountainous beauty of the Alps await.

Take Home

Buy traditional cuckoo clocks from the Black Forest, home-bottled Mosel valley wine, Lübeck marzipan and full-flavoured beer from Franconian breweries. Indulge in designer labels from Munich’s boutiques and Düsseldorf’s Kö promenade.

Eat & Drink

Sample sauerkraut (pickled cabbage) and Berlin’s beloved currywurst (curry sausage). Regional specialities include semmelknödel (dumplings) and maultaschen (stuffed pasta pasties) in the south to sea-fresh shrimp and herring-type rollmops in the north. Prized German beers include golden Pilsener and dark Altbier.

New Perspective

See Germany by train by travelling with ICE and Deutsch Bahn, with a scenic ride from Cologne to historic Koblenz where the Ehrenbreitstein fortress offers spectacular views over the castes and vineyards of the Rhine Valley.

    "After researching all the various websites available in the USA, to buy tickets for European trains, I settled on Rail Europe. The website is quite easy to use, and the information available is both comprehensive and accurate. Everything worked out perfectly, and the tickets I printed here in the USA, were accepted with no questions, from the conductor. When I use trains again in Europe, I will not hesitate to go straight to Rail Europe. "

    Be sure to board early. |
    "The train was very clean and comfortable, with seat allocated on the ticket so there's no confusion as to which car you should board and/or which seat to head to. I however highly recommend being at the platform at least 15 minutes before departure time as the train leaves very punctually, and there is usually a mad rush to board beforehand. There is also VERY limited luggage room, so for those carrying a lot of luggage, be early so as to get storage space for your bags. "

  • Trip to Kolen from Amsterdam |
    "It was a good experience, difficult Part was finding the right compartment from the Amsterdam station. No officer was found on the plat form. Initially One train came, but my compartment number was not there, I went here and there, but no one was there to clarify. suddenly i saw 2 nd train has been attached with my compartment. I have to hurry with the time. This problem was not only for me but to other travelers as well. Need some mechanism to guide. "
