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.

    Europe Trip with RailEurope |
    "I really had a convenient trip when I bought tickets in advance for train in RailEurope. I didn't worry on buying tickets during my journey while I was there. It was really a time saving for me since I only have limited time there. Since I do have my ETD from Amsterdam to Ghent I sticked to my schedule which helped me alot not to delay my journey. I already had my mind set to be early to the station. All you have to do is hop on hop off on the train and look for the train connection to the next journey. If you are in doubt there are counters which you can check your next journey. One thing I like on my next trip from Ghent to Brussels was the flexible time, because when you still love to explore you will not worry that you'll be late on your next trip. Just be sure you always have your ticket for the inspector. They are strict on checking the tickets. I would definitely buy again in RailEurope if I still want to go to other places in Europe. Kudos RailEurope Team! "

    "This was my first visit to Western Europe, I loved the train journey. I am glad I chose it over a plane. The trains are very nice, clean and comfortable. May be a bit expensive towards closer to the journey. The staff is very friendly and helpful. It was a great and pleasurable experience, would love to do it again "

    "I felt as if it were my personal train. We had our seats previously booked so we could travel without any uncertainty. It was very important for us because we came from Costa Rica and it was our first time visiting Belgium. "
