What are the trains like?

Berlin to Warsaw train at Berlin Hbf

A Berlin-Warsaw EuroCity train at Berlin.  Yellow stripe = 1st class car.

1st class car on the Berlin to Warsaw train.   1st class 6-seat compartment on the Berlin to Warsaw train

There's usually just one 1st class car on each train, usually a classic compartment car with a side corridor & comfortable carpeted 6-seater compartments like this.  The best seats are obviously the two at the window.  On some departures including the Berlin-Krakow Wawel you'll find it's an open-plan car, called 'saloon' on bahn.de.  Click the images for larger photos.

Download the MWars appFood & drink...

Berlin-Warsaw EuroCity trains have a Polish restaurant car, 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!
