Here’s more fine German engineering

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.
