I will travel from Frankfurt to Berlin by ICE and I wanted to ask if there is Wi-Fi in the trains and how much does it cost?

It's available on some ICE routes, but not all.

Cost wise there it's 4,95€ a day, though there's a small number of roaming partners with whom you can get online in standard class too (mostly T-Mobile Germany though)

DB has a page that lists the current routes it's available on, and have a pdf map. I believe it's being slowly rolled out to more trains over time. As of July 2014, the current list is:

  • Dortmund - Düsseldorf - Cologne (also via Hagen and Wuppertal)
  • Cologne - Frankfurt (Main)
  • Frankfurt (Main) - Stuttgart - Munich
  • Frankfurt (Main) - Nuremberg - Munich
  • Frankfurt (Main) - Hanover - Hamburg
  • Frankfurt (Main) - Mannheim - Freiburg
  • Dortmund - Hanover - Berlin
  • Göttingen - Wolfsburg
  • Berlin - Hamburg
  • Fulda – Würzburg

Are you sure WiFi is free in first class? I can't find any references at bahn.de –  Simon Sep 18 '13 at 8:09
I'd be surprised if it wasn't, but I've not yet managed to catch a wifi-enabled ICE yet... It's free in 1st class on Thalys, all the UK rail operators with wifi, Denmark etc, so I don't see why DB wouldn't follow the same pattern –  Gagravarr Sep 18 '13 at 9:09
