This article is about the train. For the Bridgman form of water ice, see Ice II.

The ICE 2 is the second series of German high-speed trains and one of five in the Intercity-Express family since 1995.

The ICE 2 (half-)trains are even closer to a conventional push-pull train than the ICE 1, because each train consists of only one power car (Class 402, called powerhead), six passenger cars (Classes 805 to 807) and a cab car (Class 808).
