An express train running on German domestic routes, the Intercity is a little slower than the ICE and is also used for long distance trips. The integrated circuit covers long distances with a maximum speed of 200 km/h. In recent years, trains of the new generation "Intercity 2" run on some lines at 160 km/h only – these trains, however, offer extra legroom and extra space for toddlers. They are also equipped with air conditioning, a food carriage and wheelchair parking spaces.

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.
