Probably one of Europe's finest high speed trains, the jewel in
German Rail's crown is
the InterCityExpress or ICE.
Linking all Germany's major cities and selected destinations
outside Germany, the ICE trains offer some of
the most comfortable and well-designed accommodation around, so you
can really get the most out of your journey. All trains either have
a BordBistro car serving light refreshments or a BordRestaurant
serving full meals, and on some services a selection of dishes can
also be served at your seat.
Several sections of new purpose-built track have been built in
recent years, allowing the latest generation
of ICE trains to hit their maximum speed of up
to 186mph (300km/h) and cutting journey times dramatically.
