The "red arrow" trains are distinguished by their comfort, their ultra-modern design and their reduced impact on the environment. All Frecciarossa trains are equipped with a food carriage, a free WiFi connection and four levels of service – Standard, Premium (with drinks and welcome snacks served on arrival, as well as a morning newspaper), Business (with drinks and snacks, morning newspaper and larger seats) and Executive (with Fast Track, access to FrecciaClub lounges in train selected stations, and gourmet meals served to your seat).
The Deutsche Bahn Group is owned by the German State and controls the majority of rail traffic in Germany as well as in many border regions of the country. Every year, Deutsche Bahn transports several billion passengers and many stations in Germany are served exclusively by DB trains, including the ICE, IC and EC fleet.
The European equivalent of the Intercity of Deutsche Bahn, this train is used on cross-border routes, for example on journeys from Germany to Denmark, Austria and the Czech Republic. It stops only in some major city stations – it's often a good alternative to air travel.
