ÖBB Nightjet

ÖBB Nightjet trains are operated by the Austrian railways (ÖBB) and offer an extensive overnight network throughout Europe. Sleep your way from city to city with ÖBB Nightjet and save the daytime for sightseeing. Travel to famous cities like Vienna, Munich, Rome, and Berlin and arrive there well-rested, with a whole day of exploring ahead of you!

 

From December 2023, ÖBB Nightjet has launched their brand new ‘Nightjet of the new generation’ on the line Vienna/Innsbruck – Hamburg. In addition to the most modern seats, couchettes and sleeping cars, it has a new concept called ‘Mini Cabin’. Passengers will now be able to sleep in private pods with the same comfort as modern couchettes.

For EuroNight trains (with 'EN' train number) this is up to 2 months in advance.
