Berlin, capital of Germany
Berlin is the capital of Germany and also its largest city. It is located in the northeast of the country and is home to more than 4 million people. Did you know that Berlin is 9 times bigger than Paris and has 1,700 bridges, more than Venice?
After the World War II, the city was divided into two parts surrounded by the Berlin Wall. In 1989 the wall was destroyed, followed by the German reunification in 1990. As a result, Berlin regained its status as the capital of Germany. Having bounced back confidently from 20th century division, Berlin is has become one of Europe’s most exciting destinations.
Today Berlin, home to a multicultural population, is a city of culture, media, science and creativity.
Don’t miss the magnificent view of the city from the top of the iconic Fernsehturm (television tower), a lazy walk in the Tiergarten and an enriching visit of the Pergamon Museum, the Reichstag building and the Brandenburg gate.
The cityscape of Berlin is still changing today. However visitors can still find landmarks in relation to events from the past. History amateurs will be keen to discover the Checkpoint Charlie and a segment of the Berlin Wall, reminders of a city which has been marked by the cold war.
Culture enthusiasts will be delighted by the art of the Old Masters, present-day paintings or avant-garde design of tomorrow, classical opera, musical or pop concert, sophisticated theatre or the variety shows. Highlights are the Unter den Linden National Opera and the Deutsche Opera.
Drop in one of the many restaurants which offer different cuisines - From Berliner specialities such as Currywurst (curried sausage), Buletten (meatballs) to award-winning cuisine, Australian cuisine, French cuisine and Asian dishes, you have a wide variety of choice.

- "Quite Lovely " Yogesh f. 10/01/2014
I booked this train to enjoy an overnight train journey in our own personal cabin. I loved having our personal shower, WC, and breakfast-in-bed service. I'd love to travel on this again. Completely worth the price.
- "very good" Félix r. 09/01/2014
I've seen better but it was a good experience and we went on well with the other people. Only problem when some men knocked on the door very late in the night and very loud, as a kind of a joke I presume, but not really for all of us.
- "Night line Berlin - Amsterdam" Zeev g. 03/12/2013
bads wasn't as expected. should be better. Breakfast was poor. can take care of some coffee corner for the night. I expected much more for the money I paid.
- "Very bad" Leon b. 11/11/2013
We left 25 minutes late, we were bitten by fleas. VERY UNCOMFORTABLE.
- "Amazing" Maxwadi m. 05/11/2013
It was a very very nice experienced traveling by train across the sea. Train was comfortable, staff very friendly, and most of all at the ferry it was very excitied. If anyone have a good time try eurotrain unquestionable.
- "Need more clear signages" Suk Ha t. 04/11/2013
Overall, it's still easy to find your right train inside the station (except the coach no.) The arrival time is quite on time and it's just few minutes delay which it will be informed to passengers in advance when you are on the platform and waiting for the train. However, we have difficulties in figuring out how to locate the exact coach no. because it's not really easy to find our coach on the poster shown in the platform as well as it's hardly find a DB assistant to ask around. When we found out that we are not standing in front of the right coach (which we think we did), we have to carry our luggages and then run run run on the platform to get to the right coach
- "A nice and safe night train" Yip Keung s. 19/09/2013
We are in a room with a pair of old and a pair of young couple, the room door can be locked at night, feeling safe. It would be better if the lower bed have more space with the middle bed so can sit more comfortable.
- "ICE experience Hamburg-Berlin" Deon j. 07/09/2013
Train to Berlin was 1 hour late? Surprising, thought they ran like clockwork. Information about late trains confusing, customer service queues too long. Not enough large baggage storage on train. Found rail ticket expensive for what is offered
- "Sleeper Cars" Cynthia d. 03/09/2013
This train was very good..my first experience in sleeper cars. A little concerned that I got woken up when someone else got on in the middle of the night, but I guess that cannot be avoided. The train attendant that was there when I got on was wonderful, but the older gentleman that came on for the day was gumpy, unhelpful, and put me off at the wrong station
- "It was OK" Tsz Lan l. 03/09/2013
It was ok can't compliant anymore because of the fair price offer. Just one thing, the train didn't stop at "Berlin HBF" station and I didn't receive any notice before, as i've never been to Berlin before (even other places in Germany), when i got on the train i gave my ticket to the staff to confirm it was the right one, but i just noted the train wasn't stop at that station until I asked, it made me a bit anxious but luckily other passengers told me how to go. Therefore, it would be more nice to have updated info beforehand, or just let the staff remind the passengers again on the train. Thanks!
- "Travelling in the couchette " Aneta n. 19/08/2013
I would like to share my impressions from this 12 hour trip in the couchette from Berlin Hbf to Zurich Hbf. We had originally Eurail Pass for two in 1st class, however, all sleeping compartments in 1st and 2nd class were already taken when I booked our seats in the sleeping compartment. However, from Basel to Zurich there were many free cabins in the 1st and 2nd class wagons. All we wanted was to have a quiet place to sit and have our breakfast with our own food, since both of us are vegan. We were not allowed to sit in these compartments and were treated very rudely. The restaurant was very expensive and services were very unfriendly as well. It was sad since this was our last and farewell travel before leaving to Thailand (land of smiles and politeness) and the first time for my husband in Europe.
- "GOOD" Christopher Anthony c. 26/07/2013
Not too expensive, simple straight forward travelling. Food was well valued and luckily for us we had an empty cabin so it was a very relaxing journey
- "family travel to hamburg" Shay k. 19/07/2013
we traveled from berlin to hamburg, some on took our seat and after speaking with the instructor on the train we got our place back. the train arrived on time and the seats where comfortable the price is a bit high almost like a flight wish the price was a bit lower.
- "Berlin/Copenhagen via Hamburg" Gloria r. 19/07/2013
This was a fabulous trip. Train was more than comfy and excellent service was also on train. I thought it was value for money and when we got to Hamburg there was someone on the station to tell us where to catch the next train to Copenhagen. Husband and I wanted to see a bit of the German/Danish countryside and it was all in our expectations. We will be travelling one day again on the rail europe trains - done so before in Italy and Paris. Recommend pushing for reservation sales as some people were standing up for hours.
- "Fault in the comfort" Geetanjali k. 21/06/2013
The only fault was that there was no WIFI even in the First class also. I feel that when one is travelling away from home (especially as a a foreign tourist ) one likes to send instant messages and photographs to their loved ones.Railjet had this facility while travelling from Vienna to Munich.
