Train from Berlin to Warsaw

I am a solo woman traveller and am planning a trip from Berlin to Warsaw.
Flights are too expensive. So can anyone suggest a train travel. This will be in mid May. Many thanks.

There are 3 daily services connecting Berlin Hbf and Warszawa Centralna in roughly 6 hours. That said, it is worth bearing in mind, though, that rail fares might not be significantly cheaper compared to air travel (you're looking at ~80 EUR vs ~120 EUR). For timetable and exact cost, you can browse the DB website.

I've been on that train. It takes 6 hours. I would try to buy the return portion in Berlin, instead of Warsaw. The Polish ticketing system is NOT user friendly.

If budget considerations are primary, then there is also the bus. Takes up to eight hours direct service, but will cost around 40 return.

Your post seems to imply a personal security concern which in my experience of this route is unfounded. Quality of accommodation and service are on a par with other European trains

If you book on bahn.com and you book in advance (two months), you will get €39 fare so €78 RT. The train takes exactly 5 hours 23 minutes. You may want to check where the train leaves from, as sometimes there are trackworks in Germany and they do not leave out of Hbf, but rather different places.
