Fall asleep in Paris, wake up in Vienna.

From 13 December this will be possible again with sleeper trains from ÖBB, the Austrian railway company, which has successfully relaunched night trains in central Europe from 2016.

In collaboration with the SNCF, ÖBB will provide three round trips per week between Paris-Est and Vienna central station, via Strasbourg and Munich.

Allow fourteen hours of travel from one end of the line to the other, with the possibility of traveling in seats (from 29.90 euros), in a sleeper compartment (from 59.90 euros) or in the cabin private (from 89.90 euros).

While waiting for Paris-Berlin

SNCF already reopened the Paris-Nice night train last May and will reopen the Paris-Tarbes link on December 10 with a stopover in Lourdes.

So much for the interior lines.

Others, internationally, are in the works.

In particular the return of the mythical Paris-Berlin - more precisely Paris-Brussels-Berlin-Vienna -, from December 2023.

Does this return of the night train to Europe enchant you?
