DB Fernverkehr AG (German for "DB Long-Distance Traffic") is a semi-independent division of Deutsche Bahn that operates long-distance passenger trains in Germany. It was founded in 1999 in the second stage of the privatisation of Deutsche Bahn, under the name of DB Reise&Touristik and was renamed in 2003.
DB Fernverkehr operates all InterCityExpress and Intercity trains in Germany as well as several EuroCity trains throughout Europe. Unlike its sister companies, DB Regio and DB Schenker Rail (formerly Railion and before that DB Cargo), DB Fernverkehr still holds a de facto monopoly in its segment of the market, as it operates hundreds of trains per day. All of its competitors' long-distance services, combined, run no more than 15 trains per day.
