From quaint villages to modernity, authentic Germany by rail
The efficient German rail system, Deutsche Bahn (DB) takes many forms. From the high-speed Intercity Express (ICE) to Germany’s City Night Line overnight trains and double–decker S-bahn trains. Together, Deutsche Bahn's trains connect you to all major German cities and smaller villages. But only if you’re efficient, too. So find your Germany train schedules and fares and book your Deutsche Bahn train tickets now.
Rail Europe offers the same Deutsche Bahn (DB) train tickets and fares in North American as are sold in Germany, including access to a vast schedule selection. For your convenience, e-ticketing options are also available.
So you’re going to Germany. Why not get a high-performance rail pass? It lets you travel freely on trains through Germany’s varied landscape with greater spontaneity. You can even get a pass that includes the neighbors. It’s not just a great deal, it’s wunderbar.
Sometimes trains require reservations. Does yours?
The German rail network is one of the most extensive in the developed world, with trains such as the high-speed ICE that can take you almost anywhere in Germany. Reservations are not required on most trains, though they are recommended. Trains that do require reservations include the ICE Sprinter trains, overnight trains and international trains to France. Reservations can be requested within 90 days of your travel date for day trains, and up to 6 months prior for some night trains.
