The TEE of the DDR - The Baureihe VT 18.16

Meant to compete in prestige with West Germany's TEE trains, these diesel hydraulic train sets were built in 1963. They operated mostly between Berlin and Vienna via Prague, and also apparently operated to Copenhagen via ferry. Dining service was provided by Mitropa.
