"Germany by train" Germany Transportation Tip by DanielF
Germany Transportation: 309 reviews and 276 photos
Even if Germans lover cars, their strong civic sense and environmental awareness result in a feeling of guilt that many German drivers suffer. The authorities try to discourage the use of private cars by continuously increasing the taxes on petrol. Although the success of this policy is very limited, it does help to finance one of the best public transportation systems in the world.
With such a comprehensive and reliable railway system, Germany is probably one of the places in the world where a car is less necessary. Trains reach almost all the places of interest, even the smallest ones.
For long distances, ICE trains are comfortable and fast but expensive. Make sure to have a first class ticket, or you will have to travel in a very full wagon. For the small towns and villages you will have to make use of the regional and suburban system, less comfortable but usually not so crowded.
