Out of all the railway systems I've been on around the world, the German railway system comes second only to Switzerland (though I've not sampled Japan yet). Switzerland only wins because they're so darned punctual - I prefer the German rolling stock and stations.

What I like about DB and the ICE in particular is the sheer volume. When I was wandering around Europe, I would always have a rail pass and I would love to just jump on an ICE and go where it took me. If I didn't like where I was, I would take ANOTHER one. They just ran like 5th Avenue busses. The other thing was they didn't require a reservation like the TVG does. It was just hit the station, hop on a train and go.

Plus the glass that can become opaque with a flick of a switch between the driver and the rest of the cabin is mondo cool!

I've travelled from Amsterdam to Wien Westbahnhof (CityNightLine) recently. Unfortunately it was night when travelling through Germany, so no pics. When riding into Frankfurt am Main was magnificent! Nice light on all high buildings, it looks great.

When I think of Germany, two things come to my mind: Autobahns and Deutsche Bahn

I took DB from Berlin to Potsdam the first time I was in Germany. From what I remember it was pretty nice.

Any pic of the type of train I would've been on? This would've been 2004.

Great photos by the way.

Can I request more photos of Munich Hbf bitte?

Danke!

I took the train to Munich from Switzerland - I was impressed by how large the main hall at Munchen Hbf was.

I think Munich is one of the more grotty stations of the big German cities which is quite strange when considering the excellence of the rest of their PT infrastructure. Perhaps it is due a renovation sometime soon?

Frankfurt, Leipzig, Hannover and Hamburg Hauptbahnhof pictures wouldn't go amiss though!
