Is there Wi-Fi in the ICE trains in Germany?

Since 1 January 2017 there is Wi-Fi in all ICE-Trains. From DB-Homepage:

  • In first class we offer you worry-free internet access. With the
    internet provided in first class you can work efficiently and even
    send and receive large mail attachments. You can also watch videos or
    listen to music.

  • In second class you can use the internet for free, but your data
    volume is limited. We offer you a basic internet service in second
    class that allows you to network and communicate, send and receive
    e-mails, and stay up to date with Facebook, Twitter and the like.

It’s available on most ICE routes, but not all.

Cost wise there it’s 4,95€ a day in standard class, though there’s a small number of roaming partners with whom you can get online in standard class too (mostly T-Mobile Germany though). It used to be paid-for in first class as well, but as of late 2014, it’s now free for first class customers (matching what most other European high speed operators do for their wifi).

DB has a page in English that lists the current routes it’s available on, and have a pdf map. (Note that the English language map and pages are older than the German ones!). I believe that as of 2015, most of the major routes should offer it. A (possibly incomplete) list of where it’s available, as given on their website, is:

  • Dortmund – Düsseldorf – Cologne (also via Hagen and Wuppertal)
  • Cologne – Frankfurt (Main)
  • Frankfurt (Main) – Stuttgart – Munich
  • Frankfurt (Main) – Nuremberg – Munich
  • Frankfurt (Main) – Hanover – Hamburg
  • Frankfurt (Main) – Mannheim – Freiburg
  • Dortmund – Hanover – Berlin
  • Göttingen – Wolfsburg
  • Berlin – Hamburg
  • Fulda – Würzburg
