  • Hi Linda.

    You would check schedules and purchase tickets for trains from Frankfurt to Berlin and Berlin to Frankfurt by clicking on 'Find Fares & Schedules' on our homepage (www.raileurope.com) and entering the route.

    Direct trains between Frankfurt and Berlin are high-speed InterCity Express (ICE) trains. The ride on one of these trains would only be about 4 hours in duration, and they depart hourly throughout the day.

    For this route, you can tell if a reservation is being included with a ticket purchase by clicking on the 'View' button for the fare and then referring to 'Ticket Flexibility'. If, under 'Ticket Flexibility', it lists the ticket and the reservation separately, you would know that both a ticket and a reservation would be issued to you with your purchase.
