Germany is not only at the heart of Europe on a map. As a meeting point for East and West the verdant German countryside has seen towns sprout Russian influenced buildings next to Mediterranean Renaissance architecture. Important historic sights and sumptuous countryside aside, train travel in Germany is a pleasure in its own right.
Although Germany has some of the most advanced trains in Europe boarding a train involves little nonsense. The simplicity of train travel in Germany is born out of applying common sense to complex technologies so that travelling is as enjoyable as possible.
