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.

    Best way to travel |
    "If ever I choose to travel in Europe it will always be Rail Europe.We being Asians in our sixties and travelling for the first time in Europe were comfortable in our journey. No complaints but only can offer a bouquet of flowers! A little more space for baggage would have been ideal. "

    Paris to Bruxelles |
    "The train seats were comfortable and the personal electrical outlets very a welcomed feature. The internet access takes a bit of effort to log on to, is not free to all ticket types, and barely adequate speed-wise. Unfortunately the lavatory on our coach was filthy and clearly not cleaned in a while. The Paris Nord train station does notify platform number until the last moment. "

    "Train was on time, boarding was hassle free and the train was quiet so you could sleep which was very important as we had travelled so much already. We travelled first class for the wifi which was very slow, however we managed to communicate which was the main goal. The food on the train was great. We enjoyed a meal, wine and several snacks in between. "
