Like most western European countries, Germany has a great rail transportation system.  Though expensive (unless you are a student), traveling by train is convenient, safe, and comfortable.  And best of all, THEY ARE ON TIME.  Hear that America?  It’s possible to run a train/transportation service that is on time!  Now, let’s explore some of the ups and downs of riding trains in Germany and I’ll show you how to save 50% on all train tickets within the country.
