Travel information on board InterCity Berlin
On board a InterCity Berlin train, brochures titled “Ihr Reiseplan” are distributed. These brochures contain information about the stops made by the IC Berlin including the departure and arrival times at every station. The brochure also gives information about connecting trains and the services offered on board. It is also important to pay attention to the announcements. Shortly before arrival at the next stop, an announcement will be made about the connections that can be made at that station.
Berlin is one of the trendiest cities in Europe. Going out is a fantastic experience and cultural heritage exists side by side with hyper-modern architecture. In addition, its international cuisine is an attraction that is irresistible to gastronomes.
