Herzebrock-Clarholz to Dresden

Pros: Great being on the train. Cons: We are having a problem as my husband believes he lost his wallet on the train and there have not found it and the lost and found is open very odd hours. We leave tomorrow and are concerned as this is where it might have been.

Deutsche Bahn IC Train Guide & FAQs

Do Deutsche Bahn IC trains have WiFi?

No, unfortunately Deutsche Bahn IC does not offer WiFi aboard its trains at this time.

Plan ahead and you will stay entertained during the entire train ride.

Are there power points or USB points on the train?

Yes, there are power outlets onboard Deutsche Bahn IC trains. You can generally find one or two sockets per row of seats, so be a good traveller and check if your seat neighbor might want to charge up their devices as well. With the onboard power outlets, you can charge both a computer and USB devices with a USB power adapter that typically comes with most phones and tablets.

Since Deutsche Bahn IC might sometimes use replacement train vehicles, not all trips are guaranteed to have power points. We recommend to bring a power bank to charge your phone for all trips over 2 hours, just in case.
