DB wants home away from home on board future ICE trains

Vorstellung der neuen Innenraumgestaltung des ICEs am 18.05.2022

Deutsche Bahn has unveiled the interior of the upcoming ICE 3neo long-distance trains. The new interiors are designed to be a home a way from home, ceo Richard Lutz said on Wednesday.

“Travel, work, relax and feel as comfortable as you would in your own living room at 300 kilometres per hour”, Lutz remarked. He hopes the new look and feel of the trains’ interiors will convince more people to switch to rail.

The first-class section will feature warm grey colours, whereas the interior the second-class cars will be mostly blue. Wood trimmings complement the interiors in both sections. The restaurant car sets itself apart through the use of burgundy.

Not all ICE 3neo long-distance trains will feature the newly designed interior. The first 16 trains sets to come off the assembly line still have the ‘old’ interior. Train number 17, scheduled for debut in December 2023, will be the first to gain the new look.
