Few staff wanted to speak outside the bank's London office, but trade was picking up at the nearby Balls Brothers pub, with many of the employees thought to be making their way to the bar from the office. One fund manager who was drinking bubbly inside the bar with his friends said they were not from Deutsche, adding:. There was a very quick meeting and that was it,' said an IT worker leaving Deutsche Bank's London office this morning.

In just under 30 years, Deutsche Bahn, or DB for short, has become one of the most reliable train companies in Europe. Their tracks stretch the width and breadth of Germany and with their high-speed ICE trains connecting major cities—as well as international ones such as Amsterdam and Strasbourg—travelling Germany by train is easy with Deutsche Bahn. To make things clearer, we've compared Deutsche Bahn to the United Kingdom's Cross Country to help you get up to speed. Like Cross Country, Deutsche Bahn tickets are cheaper the earlier you buy them. Both DB and Cross Country offer a generous baggage policy free of charge. Cross Country offers seat reservation for free whereas DB charges a small fee for 2nd class seats, DB trains have similar facilities to Cross Country including Wi-Fi, on-board catering, charging sockets and toilets. Deutsche Bahn's principal hubs are the main train stations of Germany's larger cities, such as Frankfurt, Berlin , Munich, Hamburg and Dusseldorf.
