1. Amsterdam (trains are often cancelled without notice, they put on the heating in the summer and off in the winter, situation has slighty improved last years)
2. Rotterdam (better system, trains are clean and run punctual)
3. Brussels
4. Paris (nice system with rubber wheels and M14, system is runned in a "French" way)
5. Madrid
6. London (most impressive system)
7. Hamburg (known as Hochbahn, nice stretch in the city center near the harbour)
8. Berlin (nice to look at the history of both U-Bahn and S-Bahn)
9. Stockholm
10. Prague
11. Vienna
12. Nürnberg (partly driverless)
13. Münich
14. Bucharest (clean stations and trains, very safe due to security on board the trains and in the stations)
