Night Train from Berlin stops in Dresden and continues to Prague

European Sleeper has just added a new night train route that runs from Brussels to the Czech Republic. This new route is an extension of the existing Brussels to Berlin route and will include stops in Dresden, Prague, Bad Schandau, Decin, and Usti nad Labem before reaching the capital city Prague.

The night train will depart from Brussels South three times a week, on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. Departure times are 7:22 PM in Brussels and 8:01 PM in Antwerp. The train will pass through Berlin in the early morning, stop in Dresden two hours later, and arrive in Prague before 11 a.m. Return trips from Prague to Brussels will occur on Sunday, Tuesday, and Thursday evenings.

Elmer van Buuren, co-founder of European Sleeper, expressed excitement about this new connection to Prague. The company plans to add new routes each year with a projected Amsterdam-Brussels-Barcelona connection in the near future. This expansion plan includes introducing new routes annually with the potential for an Amsterdam-Brussels-Barcelona connection in the coming years.

This new train route was recently tested with the goal of attracting more travelers from Brussels and Amsterdam to Dresden and Prague. The company expects that around 40 percent of travelers will opt for this extended connection as competition for European Sleeper comes from Nightjet by Austrian railway company ÖBB which also offers a Brussels to Vienna route.
