What are the EuroCity trains like?

Berlin to Warsaw train at Berlin Hbf

1st class:  The Berlin-Krakow EuroCity train Wawel at Berlin.  Yellow stripe = 1st class.

1st class compartment on a Berlin to Warsaw train.   1st class compartment on a Berlin to Warsaw train.

There's usually just one 1st class car on each train.  On most Berlin-Warsaw trains it's a classic compartment car with a side corridor & comfortable carpeted 6-seater compartments (above left).  The best seats are obviously the two at the window.  On the Wawel from Berlin to Krakow it's an open-plan saloon (above right).  Click the images for larger photos.

All these Berlin-Poland EuroCity trains have a Polish restaurant car, except the morning Wroclaw-Berlin & evening Berlin-Wroclaw trains.  The restaurant is staffed by Wars, the Polish train caterers.  Treat yourself to a meal and linger in the restaurant for an hour or two over a beer and a meal.  A tasty sausage soup, main course of schnitzel, potato & salad served on proper china, a beer and coffee for only around 10.  Euros & zlotys are both accepted, you must pay in cash whilst in Germany but when the train is in Poland they will normally accept credit cards too.  Of course, you're also free to bring your own picnic and beer or wine along and eat at your seat.

Tip:  Go to wars.pl/mwars and download the MWars app for Android or iPhone.  You can then use your smartphone to order food & drink from the restaurant car menu served at your seat (you tell them your car & seat number in the app).  Let me know how it goes!

Useful information...

The river Oder, border between Germany & Poland

Soon after leaving Frankfurt (Oder) an hour east of Berlin, the train crosses the River Oder into Poland.  This photo is taken looking south with the Oder forming the border.  That's Germany on the right, Poland on the left.  Courtesy of Marieke Krijnen.
