At DB Long-Distance, we provide our passengers with fast, comfortable, and eco-friendly travel within Germany and 14 other European countries.

In line with our core identity, we are motivated to connect people and overcome distances with the help of more than 500 ICE- and Intercity-trains, bringing over 400.000 passengers to their destinations every day. With its strategy “Germany needs strong rail”, DB Long-Distance´s goal is to double the number of passengers in long-distance transport and help transfer more traffic to the rail so that European climate goals can be achieved. Every journey on DB Long-Distance trains is an active contribution towards climate neutrality among other things through a green electricity share of 100%, investment in more modern and energy-efficient trains and CO₂-neutral maintenance at a growing number of depots.

DB Long-Distance aims to offer its passengers the best journey possible. With more than 19.000 employees, our company operates an extensive network of over 800 daily long-distance rail services in Germany, connecting various regions all over the country with its train fleet. In addition to the national service, we offer around 250 transnational connections to more than 80 European cities daily – primarily through collaborations with our European partners. With over 170 locations for the provision of trains all over Germany and ten locations for train maintenance, the trains of DB Long-Distance are prepared for their assignments.

In order to provide our customers with the most convenient and eco-friendly journey, DB Long-Distance relies on various digital and personal services. This includes Wi-Fi for all our passengers within the entire ICE-fleet. DB Long-Distance also operates 300 on-board restaurants and bistros, offering high-quality cuisine to its passengers. Additionally, there are a total of 15 DB Lounges at selected rail stations where passengers can find elegant seating areas, a stylish ambience, and attentive service for an enjoyable stay.
