This short cab ride with an ICE4 (series 412) shows what an investment in high-speed railway lines can achieve. The 120 kilometres long route between Erfurt in Thuringia and Halle (Saale) in Saxony-Anhalt used to take just under an hour. Today it only takes up to 33 minutes. The car takes 1 hour and 20 minutes. Maximum route speed 300km / h, on this trip it will be 250km / h.
