The BordBistro is available to all passengers and offers a selection of light meals, sandwiches, salads, hot snacks and beverages.
The ICE 3 carriages (on the high-speed line between Cologne and Frankfurt) offer a Panorama Lounge where passengers can watch the train driver thanks to a glass partition! Panorama Lounges are available in 1st and 2nd class.
For seat reservations in the Panorama Lounges call the SNCB Europe Contact Center on +32 (0)70 79 79 79 (€ 0.30/min.) or reserve at one of the 39 Belgian stations with international sales.
In Cologne, Frankfurt Airport and Frankfurt, 1st class passengers have access to the DB Lounges where they can get free coffee, tea and other beverages. Passengers can watch television on the large screens or read a variety of magazines and newspapers. Dedicated work areas with Internet connection are also available.
In contrast to other railway companies, no different fares for ‘adults’, ‘youth’ or ‘seniors’ are available for ICE services. Instead, you can choose between two fare categories, 'Europa Spezial' / 'Sparpreis' and the standard 'Normalpreis'. These are available in 1st and 2nd class. There are also fares for children (under 15 years old) and passengers with reduced mobility.
Tip: when booking online, you just indicate the number of passengers per age group and our booking system automatically gives you all the corresponding fares.
Europa Spezial and Sparpreis: for travel on a budget!
Normalpreis: for flexible travel!
Seat reservations: for the Europa Spezial/Sparpreis fare, as well as for the Normalpreis fare, a seat reservation is optional and costs €4 per journey.
