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 125 mph (200 km/h). In recent years, trains of the new generation "Intercity 2" run on some lines at 100 mph (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.

Danish State Railways (DSB) is the largest Danish railway company. The Danish high-speed train is Eurocity, which operates two lines connecting Copenhagen to Hamburg and Hamburg to Flensburg. It offers two classes or levels of comfort – First Class and Second Class. DSB's long-distance trains are Intercity and IntercityLyn, in order of importance. The regional lines are operated by the R-tog trains, and the S-tog service gives its name to the trams that run through the old city of Copenhagen.
