Seating choices on German trains between 1st and 2nd class

Jump to last reply

I'm trying to decide whether to choose 1st or 2nd class between Munich and Frankfurt. It's a 3 hour ride and I can't tell if 1st class gives me the options I want to justify the additional cost. I want to ride in a quiet car which is offered in both classes but my husband does not want to take the chance of being placed in a seating configuration with a table between two sets of facing seats.

For the train time I wanted, selecting a reservation in 1st class on an open saloon and a quiet car gave us restricted seating which I guessed is our seats would not be together. If I remove the restrictions of open saloon with tables our seating is not restricted but we don't want a seat with a table. I know there are less seats in 1st class but do more of the seats have tables or is it that there are fewer 1st class seats so our options are fewer.

FWIW, 1st class is 139 euros for the two of us and 2nd class is 109 euros. There is a 4 euros per seat reservation fee for either 1st or 2nd class.

Thanks for any help you can give me regarding the differences between 1st and 2nd class cars. Deborah
