On Dec. 8, the German railway system completed the last remaining gap in the 623-km (390-mile) high-speed line between Berlin and Munich. That last gap is a new 300-kph (187-mph) high-speed segment between Erfurt and Bamberg. The completed full line consists of a combination of new 300-kph lines and upgraded older lines, allowing high-speed ICE trains to complete the full trip in a tad less than four hours.
