The typical top speed of an RE is 160 km/h. If you include the stops at the train stations, you typically arrive at an average travel speed of 70 to 90 km/h.

Whether this maximum speed is reached naturally also depends on the route and the train used. Some vehicles can only manage 120 or 140, the Munich-Nuremberg Express (München-Nürnberg-Express) via Ingolstadt even reaches a top speed of 200 km/h.
