The fastest trains are direct ICE (InterContinentalExpress) trains that take 5 hours - walk up fare is 139 euros but if you book weeks in advance you can usually get a 79 euro fare but that would be train specific and non-changeable so be sure of your times and as they are sold in limited number it is imperative to book really early.

You can always buy walk up fares in Germany and be sure of getting on trains as they do not require reservations so you can always board or you can make an optional seat reservation - if doing many more train trips investigate the German Railpass - especially if you want flexibility to hop any train anytime - a couple of 5 hour train rides at full price may be more than the total cost of a pass and you would have additional unlimited travel days to boot.

Some superb sites for Germany train info - http://www.budgeteuropetravel.com/id9.html; www.ricksteves.com and www.seat61.com - the latter has great info on discounted tickets.
