Ride a Deutsche Bahn train. Explore all that is Germany.

Travelers agree (perhaps that’s why over two billion travelers are served each year!) that seeing Germany by train on Deutsche Bahn (DB) trains may very well be the best way to explore the country. Germany’s rail system, the Deutsche Bahn, is extraordinarily efficient, and it is possible to visit almost every city in Germany by rail. Let the Deutsche Bahn’s eclectic offerings transport you from the busiest metropolis to the quaintest villages. Take a glide-ride on a high-speed 174 mph flagship, Germany Intercity Express (ICE) train and connect to all major German cities including Hamburg, Munich, Berlin, Frankfurt, Stuttgart and Cologne.

And now Rail Europe offers the same 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. 

Need some quality “shut-eye?” With Germany’s City Night Line overnight trains get to your destination relaxed and refreshed. And the Deutsche Bahn Intercity trains travel to all major city centers, as well as connecting to such neighboring countries as Denmark, Poland, Switzerland, and the Czech Republic. And you can even save time mingling with the locals. The double-decker S-bahn trains offer faster journey times and make the transition from local to long-distance travel fun and effort-free.

Are you traveling with a rail pass?

A rail pass entitles you to travel on European trains in a specific geographic area, for a specific number of days. If you are planning on taking three or more train trips, a rail pass is often more cost effective than individual train tickets.

Who Is Traveling?


Children under age 4 can travel for free on the lap of an adult traveler. If you want your child under age 4 to have their own seat, you need to purchase a ticket for them by selecting “Youth/Child 4-25” and indicating the child is 4 years old.
