OEBB Sleeper Trains to Resume across Europe

Austrian Federal Railways says its OEBB Nightjet trains will resume services from 26 June.

International sleeper train services were halted as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. Now, the biggest provider of sleeper services is able to offer this environmentally friendly way of travelling around Europe again.

Cities such as Dusseldorf, Hamburg (Germany), Zurich (Switzerland) and Venice (Italy) can be reached over night again. OEBB CEO Andreas Matthä is happy about another piece of normalcy returning to people’s lives.

Travelling over night is a comfortable and time-saving way to get around Europe and also cost-effective as passengers don’t incur the additional cost of a hotel room.

To ensure the highest-possible safety, the OEBB Nightjets will be thoroughly cleaned before and after every trip. The on-board sales will also be expanded to include disinfectant and face coverings.

OEBB has been working on expanding its international long-distance connections. In January it launched new sleeper train connections between Vienna and Brussels. In December 2020 OEBB will add further destinations such as Amsterdam to its list. OEBB doesn’t just provide sleeper trains between Austrian cities such as Vienna and Graz and international destinations. It offers German-Swiss connections such as Zurich-Hamburg, Swiss-Czech connections such as Prague-Zurich, and German-Italian connections such as Venice-Munich.
