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.

    Enjoyable Ride from Munich |
    "I took the ICE train from Munich Central Station to Frankfurt Airport. The total journey took about 5 hours, an hour longer than scheduled due to weather elements and stops along the way. The ride was comfortable, very affordable and extremely convenient. The Wifi was not working for some reason but I had dataroam so was not a problem. There was refreshments (add-on) and the seat was very comfortable. I would recommend this to flying if you can afford the time as you can view the scenery and the different towns it stopped along the way. "

    Frankfurt to Düsseldorf. |
    "It is more convenience for foreign travelers like us if we don't have to print out the tickets in the train station. Because from my experiences using trains during our trip in Europe, only this trip between Frankfurt to Dussoldorf, we have to print the ticket in the station instead of using reprinted ticket at home.
