Snooze across Europe: ÖBB Nightjet trains are now available at Trainline

by Betsy Autran, posted 18 July 2018 | 2 comments

For some time tickets from ÖBB (Austrian Federal Railways) have been available through Trainline–a big step for us to which we’ll happily give a throwback toast with a Gösser in hand. 🍺 But our connection to ÖBB in March 2018 didn’t just mean offering tickets for journeys throughout Austria, it’s much, much more! Let’s talk about Nightjet trains.

Perhaps you’ve heard of Nightjet trains, the famous fly-by-night trains of Europe. We mentioned them in our article introducing ÖBB tickets, but these midnight voyages deserve their own moment in the sun (although they much prefer the moonlight). Nightjet trains are the epitome of railway romance and are a great choice for adventurers seeking that special experience while on a shoestring budget.

Put on your night cap! A multitude of destinations throughout Europe are just forty winks away, and you’ll be pleased to know these tickets are quite easy to book through our website and apps.

ÖBB Nightjet

Wake up in a new city and go, with Nightjet!

Italy, Croatia, Slovenia, and Hungary for more

The Nightjet trains travel through Austria, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Slovakia, Croatia, Slovenia, Poland, Hungary, and the Czech Republic. Zzzigzag your way to the most beautiful cities in Europe: Vienna, Verona, Berlin, Basel, Prague, Zagreb—the list goes on, and tickets are available from just €29. That’s less than you’ll spend on one night in most hotels, and you’ll be drifting through dreams across Europe. You can book your tickets up to 180 days in advance to save the most money on your journey through the land of nod.

Here are some sample naps to ignite your imagination:

Berlin-Magdeburg-Freiburg-Basel-Zürich

The ÖBB Nightjet system offers a variety of options to suit your personal comfort needs and sleeping habits. If you’re a night owl or you prefer to admire the passing landscapes by twilight, or you’re just the thrifty type, then you can book a place in a 6-seat compartment. Each carriage is equipped with toilets and washrooms so that you can arrive at your destination fresh as a daisy with morning dew. These seats on the Nightjet trains offer the cheapest fares, with tickets available from only €29.

Grab a seat and get there on a shoestring overnight.

If you struggle to sleep while sitting up, or you’re a bit of a drooler, you’re better off in the couchette carriages where you can doze off in a horizontal position. These 4 or 6-bed compartments are perfect for families or small groups. Blankets, sheets, and pillows are provided for a cosy night’s sleep, as well as mineral water in the evening and breakfast in the morning. Tickets for a couchette in a 6-bed compartment are available from €49, or in a 4-bed compartment from €59.

Whisk the whole sleepy family by Nightjet from Munich to Milan.

But maybe you’re looking for something a bit more lavish. Book yourself in a Sleeper Cabin, which offers the most comfort of all. In the Nightjet Sleeper Cabins, you have the choice between 1-bed, 2-bed, or 3-bed compartments.

Still dreaming of more? Book the deluxe compartment and you’ll have your own private bathroom equipped with a sink, shower, toilet, shower gel, and towels. But of course that’s not all, in the evening you’ll be given mineral water, tasty treats, beverages, and a daily newspaper, then in the morning a large breakfast with choice. As a VIP of the train, your ticket will also grant you access to the ÖBB lounges at no extra cost. That’s the way to travel! Tickets for one night in a Sleeper Cabin are available from €69. In this case, if you snooze, you won’t lose.

Booking Nightjet tickets with Trainline is pretty simple. Enter the desired route and departure date and in the search results you’ll find the Nightjet trains, recognisable by the little half-moon symbol 🌜, our indication for night train journeys. Once you’ve chosen your preferred train, you can pick the seating/couchette option in the “Zone” field on the right side. You’ll see what your ticket costs before you pre-book and pay.

Here is an example for the journey from Munich to Milan:

Before you know it you’ll be counting sheep as you drift along pastures through the European countryside. And keep those sheep happy knowing that travelling by train is environmentally friendly. If you have any worries at all, we’ll be there to tuck you in. Good night!

We are from Canada. We took the night train from Vienna to Venice. We had a private couchette. While we were sleeping somebody had opened the lock from outside and stole all of our money. We complained to the company and they keep changing what they say every time which makes the situation very frustrating and suspicious. They make up stories and change them next day. We lost around 1000 Euros in cash. I am writing this review because I do not want this to happen to anybody else. This ruined our vacation. I am a very careful person and I never thought this would happen to me. OBB is telling me that this is totally normal and obvious that any lock can be opened and manipulated from outside and we do not think it was necessary to tell you. Please do not take any trips with them since they are totally dishonest. I am not a heavy sleeper but I am sure somebody with lots of experience has done it and took the money from 3 different locations.
