Night trains carry you over long distances while you sleep. For instance, board the EuroNight train in Munich in the early evening and wake up in Budapest the next morning, ready to explore!
- How to use the map
This map contains all night trains in Europe that are included in your Pass. You can use your mouse or touchpad to zoom in and out to see all the destinations and routes that are serviced by a night train up close. Clicking on a green line between destinations will show you the total route of the night train and reservation information.
In the top left corner there is a button (on the left side of the 'Night Trains in Europe' title). When clicked a side bar will fold out, showing you the contents of the map, in this case the destinations and routes. To see a complete list of night train routes (the place of departure and arrival), fold out the routes tab. Selecting a route will open some extra route information and reservation fees for this route.

Reservations are compulsory for all night trains. Depending on the train, you can make these reservations online, by phone or at the train station. A reservation guarantees you a seat or a bed on the train.
Night trains have several accommodation options, ranging from reclining seats to single cabins with private bathrooms. You will pay a higher reservation fee for the more luxurious options.
When travelling on a night train, you only have to write down the day of departure. For example, if you travel on a night train from 9 to 10 August, you only write down 9 August. If you're travelling with a mobile Pass, this will happen automatically once you add the journey to My Trip.
On the day of departure of the night train, you can take as many trains as you want; it's on the same day after all. If you take another train after the night train has arrived, you'll have to use a new travel day.
Please note: the departure day of the night train you're taking, can not be on the last day of validity of your Pass!
- Travelling home by night train
If you’re planning to use a night train to return to your home country, and the destination of this night train is not your final destination, you will need to use two travel days: one normal travel day and one travel day that includes an inbound journey. The inbound journey should only apply to the second travel day, so you need to add two separate journeys to ‘My Trip’ on your Mobile Pass:
1. On the day of departure:
Night train departure station → the border station outside of your home country.
2. The next day, after midnight:
Border station outside of your home country → your final destination
The inbound journey will automatically be applied only to the second travel day
An Austrian traveller, departing from Amsterdam (the Netherlands), travelling home to Amstetten (Austria). His trip on the direct train from Amsterdam to Vienna (Wien) is split up in two sections in the app: 1. Amsterdam - Passau (Germany) and 2. Passau - Vienna (Austria). This way the inbound journey is applied on the second travel day.
If you have a need for speed, or want to take it slow, we've got you covered.
