Night train


Information about night trains. The different types of seats, berths and sleepers. Save travel time on long distance train journeys.

Raildude
There are very good night train connections in Europe. With night trains you can travel large distances while you sleep and save on costs for hostels.
In general, overnight trains require a reservation for the category of seat or bed you want to book.

In night trains there are three different categories: regular seats, couchettes and sleeping cars.

Depending on the type of night train and the country you travel in, each category offers different subcategories. Choose the night train you want to use and we will show you the details and photos of the different compartment types.

Seat

Most night trains also have cars attached with normal day train seats. Some offer special seats called "Sleeperettes" which are more comfortable than the ordinary seats. This is the cheapest way to spent the night but at the same time probably the most uncomfortable one. In some night trains the seats are even free to use without any reservation fee.

Couchette

Couchette cars offer the best balance between comfort and cost. The compartments usually comprise four to six berths. The doors can be locked. Women travelling alone can often book "women only" compartments.
The price you pay for a berth is approximately the cost of a bed in a dormitory of a hostel. Couchettes usually don't offer showers. There are only sinks and toilets.

Sleeper

Sleeping cars offer the greatest comfort. The compartments are usually for one or two travelers and are equipped with larger beds. Some sleeping compartments require a 1st class ticket. The compartments include a washbasin, some even offer a private shower and toilet.
