Clocking in at a speed of 250 km/hour (over 150 miles/hour), we took the famous German ICE train from Freiburg to Berlin. The scenic 800 mile trip was much nicer by rail than highway I would say! We had a minor mishap on the journey home though since we got off at the wrong Frankfurt station and missed our connecting ICE train back to Freiburg. But not a problem! We simply caught the next one only one hour later after negotiating new seats for our group of 25 American students who ALL managed to get off at the wrong stop.
