Perhaps pretty good in comparison to some other national railways companies. But it is definitely not cheap and the fare system is a mess. Sometimes even the employees at the ticket-counters are not able to give you the cheapest ticket to your destination. The italian railways (Ferrovie Statale) are cheap.

yes, the italian railways are the cheapest but the service is bad in general, especially for the regional service.

i'm ready to pay also 25-30% plus the current price if the service will be better. and this is the opinion of the many italian people.

ICE3 is for me the best highspeed train, the internal are wonderful

Agree with DiggerD21. They are pretty good on average, but not cheap. I just booked two tickets to Kempton for Feb from Frankfurt and comes to over €220 (and that includes one of the passengers with a Bahn Card)

I can fly to London for cheaper than that at the same short notice.

It used to be better, but the pricing system has deteriorated over the last few years. The worst part about the service is the restaurants and food on board the trains. The are of shocking quality and incredibly expensive - most people take their own food on board because of this.

Great pictures, Stevan!

Personally, I love DB. Their extensive system never ceases to amaze me and I have never seen anything nearly that spectacular anywhere else in the world (never been to Japan, though). Things are constantly being improved (new stations, trains, friendlier staff, ticketing machines everywhere, even in the deepest countryside). But I do realize that some of these improvements are made at the expense of others (ie, senior citizens). However, I agree with the previous posters - DB is not cheap at all and the ticket rates system is opaque and complicated. It takes quite a few trips for one to figure out how it works (if you travel over the weekends, Spar50 rates often give you the same discount as a Bahncard50 or Surf&Rail rates). But all in one, DB is a logistical masterpiece.
