Hamburg to Chur EuroCity service between Karlsruhe and Mannheim. A DB Class 101 hauls a rake of SBB coaches.

The German rail network provides connections to each of its neighbouring countries, many of which are under the EuroCity classification. EuroCity services are part of the Intercity network - many EC services represented a couple of train pairs on an IC route extended across the border, while other routes are served primarily by EuroCity services. EuroCity services are generally locomotive-hauled, using Intercity rolling stock, either from Deutsche Bahn or one of the other countries along the route.

Intercity services that cross borders[edit]

A number of trains provide international connections, but are classed as Intercity rather than Eurocity. This may be because the routes were former InterRegio services, or they only travel a short distance over the border.
