When trains are good, they’re very good. So we had high expectations of the Deutsche Bahne ICE (InterCity Express), which leavesHamburg several times a day for the 4 hour 45 minute trip to Copenhagen, via the ferry (Puttgarden – Rødby). We tested out the First Class service to see how it fared in the style, comfort and efficiency stakes.
The food in the lounge was delicious – staff offered to bring all kinds of refreshments to my table while I was working. RASK sipped on a glass of Sekt, and a filling slice of rye bread with cheese. On board, RASK was given coupons by a conductor, which we cashed in for a decidedly ‘un-fancy’ sparkling water, coffee and huge Snickers bar – it did hit the spot though!
