European Sleeper Expands its Night Train Service to Include Stops in Czech Republic

The journey from Berlin to Prague via Dresden on the night train

European Sleeper, a Dutch-Belgian rail company, has extended its night train service from Brussels to Berlin to include stops in Dresden, Bad Schandau, Decin, Usti nad Labem, and Prague in the Czech Republic. The train will run three times a week, departing from Brussels South on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. Departure times are 7:22 PM in Brussels and 8:01 PM in Antwerp, with arrival in Prague shortly before 11 a.m.

The extension of the connection to Prague was recently tested by European Sleeper and is expected to attract around 40 percent of travelers from Brussels and Amsterdam who opt for this route. Co-founder Elmer van Buuren expressed excitement about the new connection and mentioned plans to add more routes in the future. One possibility is an Amsterdam-Brussels-Barcelona route that could be launched in 2025 or 2026.

European Sleeper faces competition from Nightjet by Austrian railway company ÖBB on the Brussels-Berlin route. The Nightjet offers an alternative route via Cologne, Bonn, and Frankfurt to Berlin as well as service from Brussels to Vienna. This expansion of night trains connecting major European cities provides travelers with more options for convenient and sustainable transportation.
