There seems to be no discount for Inter rail passengers on this night train on the 19th July, is this correct?

Hi.

The InterRail discount is available every day - except no more seats/bed are left and the train is full.
But online booking is NOT possible for this train as either departure or arrival station (like mentioned at the topic of online reservation for CNL trains) has to be in Germany - which is not the case here.

You can book this train at a station for example in the Netherlands or in Germany.

Peter :)

Hi.

A couchette is a compartment with six or fours beds inside instead of seats.
You always have on each site of the compartment one lower, one middle and one upper small "bed" to lay down.
It is definitely okay and comfortable to use it for a night.

I just attached one photo of a 2 bed couchette ... a bit more comfortable... just that you can get a first impression.

This is what is currently bothering me:
Will I be able to take the night train from Amsterdam to Copenhagen, although it is passing through Germany, which is my country of residence?

Some background:

I am a holder of a German passport who is currently residing in Amsterdam. (I study there.)

I have booked the cheapest Interrail global-pass giving Germany as country of residence (because I am not a Dutch citizen) but set the delivery address to my Amsterdam flat. Thus, I probably can't travel for free through Germany. What do you think?

Should I post this somewhere else?

Hi!

With an InterRail Pass with country of residence Germany you will need an extra ticket for the part of the CNL covering Germany. :?

There is already a topic dealing with that issue :arrow: netherlands-denmark-without-country-of-residence-germany-t4728.html

Thanks, that is useful info.

I plan on taking a train from Amsterdam to Bad Bentheim and then go to the DB Reisezentrum and state my case and destination... Usually the German employees are quite good at finding out reasonable offers. (I also should get a discount of 25% with my interrail pass which I am not sure how to achieve with online booking.) I might go cheaply to Berlin and take the berlin-sweden-night-express-t1185.html for 19 Euros to Sweden.

Thanks again.

Hi!

Note that you only get the discounted InterRail fare in your country of residence for travelling from your home to the border and back. "Transit" journeys dont get the reduced fare.

If you want to travel Amsterdam - Copenhagen during your travel a "EuropaSpezial" ticket might be the best option (when taking the night train), for day travel I think the "Schönes Wochenende Ticket" is cheapest, but you can only use it when travelling in a group of 2 or more... :?

Hi.

I need to use this train in one of my days of InterRail and, since tickets are almost sold out, I really need to find a solution. Do you know if I can buy these tickets in Paris?

Cheers

Hi Rita.

Yes it should be possible to get the supplement at one of the big stations in Paris (Gare du Nord, Gare de l'Est).

Thank you! It's a huge relief to know that. :oops:

Just another (probably stupid) question: for the free trains, do I need to get some ticket or I can board anytime I want?

"FREE" means: you do not need a supplement - just jump into a train as long as you own a valid InterRail pass.

Hi there, does anyone know how to check the availability of seats on this train? I really want to use this train, but living in the UK it's not possible to book reservations at stations. What are the chances of a couchette (or recline-able seat) being available 4days before departure? :?

Hej,

there are no reclining seats on this train - just regular 6 seat compartments, which are not very comoftable. Currently, if I book the train 4 days in advance, only seats are left - during peak summer it might be booked even earlier.

Anyway, you can get online reservations for this train, check the link ("UPDATE") in the first post of this thread. Attention, for online reservations on CNL trains at least departure or arrival station have to be in Germany. This means you should get your reservation from Emmerich or Duisburg to Kobenhavn, not from Amsterdam! Anyway it shouldnt be a problem to enter the train in Amsterdam with this reservation, just explain this to the conductor. As the reservation cost is the same for any destination all should be fine.
