21 June 2019- Visiting friends

Paris to Ansbach

Pros: two stage trip- intercity train from paris to Karlsruhe, then local train to Ansbach. Intercity had reserved seats; at transfer pojnbt the rush to move on led to leaving an ipad behind; VERY vchallenbgiugn to egt rpeosnse form the staitolkn staff and then the help desk re fidnign it aagin. Numbers are answered as 'no longer availab;le' emaiul amnswered nce the nsubsequentlyt reposne is 'no longer in service'. Veyr poor. Second stage to Ansbach no reserved seating, then halfway through trip a large sports group arrived with reserved seats requiring us and several others to relocate to another car, away from our luggage. They proceeded to have a loud and beer fueled party during the rest of the trip. Cons: better response from station staff and help lines for lost materials.

Deutsche Bahn Train Guide & FAQs

No, unfortunately Deutsche Bahn does not offer WiFi aboard its trains at this time. However, we find that a good book makes the time fly by and streaming services like Netflix allow you download TV shows and movies that you can then watch during your trip. Plan ahead and you will stay entertained during the entire train ride.

Yes, there are power outlets onboard Deutsche Bahn 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 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.

On a typical day, Deutsche Bahn has 312 scheduled train trips in total. However, the exact departure and arrival times vary depending on the day and route. The best way to find the exact schedule for your trip is to use the search tool on this page.

No, Deutsche Bahn does not offer will call tickets. You should purchase your tickets online and make sure you have everything you need to board before you arrive at the station.

Yes, Deutsche Bahn requires you to present an ID to an agent to be allowed to board the train. Make sure you have identification issued by a government agency that meets the carrier’s requirements. Alternative IDs, such as a college ID, won’t work.

No, there are no bathrooms available on Deutsche Bahn trains. Though there are no bathrooms onboard, typically breaks are scheduled in the itinerary to allow passengers to use bathroom facilities along the way.

Deutsche Bahn does not offer meals or beverages onboard. We recommend you bring a drink and some snacks for your trip. We also suggest packing a reusable water bottle with you to reduce your impact on the environment. However, note that most trains do not allow you to bring your own alcoholic drinks.

Deutsche Bahn does not require a printed ticket to board the train. Instead, an eTicket is sent to you by email when you make your reservation. You can use your smartphone to show this eTicket to the ticketing agent as you board.

Deutsche Bahn focuses on delivering a great travel experience at a low price and currently does not offer premium features like extra legroom or onboard entertainment. But these days, between your laptop, tablet, smartphone and e-reader, you’re the master of your own entertainment even on longer journeys.
