On board of board ICE International


Travelling on an ICE International train means comfortable travel. Every detail has been attended to. In the bar/buffet car, you can order a simple meal, sandwiches, salads, hot snacks and beverages and pay in cash or with a credit card. On some ICE International trains, personnel come around to your seat selling beverages and snacks.

See what the engine driver sees

The ICE International 3 trains (Cologne-Frankfurt) have "Panorama Lounge" compartments. In these compartments a glass wall gives travellers the same view that the engine driver has!

Finding your carriage

Your carriage number is printed on your ticket. On ICE International trains, the carriage numbers are located next to the exterior doors. When stepping onto the platform you can consult the signs that indicate where the carriages are located.
