A long journey from Fussen to Berlin by train. Initially, we thought of taking the plane. However, we decided to have a different experience by taking the train. A lot of things happened that day when we were on the train, it was not only an experience but also a lesson learnt.
First Class Cabin
There is no direct train from Fussen to Berlin, therefore we have to transit at Munich station. We were excited to get on board the first class cabin as we were expecting a happy and smooth journey.

We enjoyed our journey to Berlin as the service provided on the train was good and the train ride was comfortable. We even felt safe that we leave our bags at the seat (**however, do bring along your valuables with you). Please note travelling in Europe countries leaving your bags unattended is not advisable and this is the first time we did that.
The Bordrestaurant gives a cosy and warm atmosphere. Local and travellers alike will gather here for snack bites, a glass of beer or have their meal. Food served were quite decent, of course we wouldn’t say that it is fantastic. But it is definitely above our expectation. Food price is reasonable and not too expensive.
Check your train ride number properly and always double confirm if you are on the right train and correct platform. We thought that there was a change in the train before we depart as an email was send to us to inform about a change in the train ride but we did not go to double confirm on it again and assume that it was this ride that we are going to take. Thus, we just board the train on the platform that we thought that is the correct train without checking. This was the most painstaking mistake that we made during this trip as the ticket costs a lot more than we have pay for.
