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

Dutch-Belgian rail company European Sleeper has recently expanded its night train service from Brussels to Berlin, adding 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 addition of the new connection to Prague was tested recently by European Sleeper, who expects around 40 percent of travelers from Brussels and Amsterdam to opt for this route. Co-founder Elmer van Buuren expressed his excitement about the new connection and mentioned plans to add more routes in the future. In particular, he mentioned plans to expand into Amsterdam-Barcelona route in 2025 or 2026.

European Sleeper faces competition on the Brussels-Berlin route from Austrian railway company ÖBB’s Nightjet service which 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.
