All aboard! This new night train is coming to the Netherlands in March

The mountains are calling! โœจ

Going to sleep in flat ol’ Netherlands and waking up in a green mountain paradise? Yup, thanks to European Sleeper‘s newest night train to Germany, it will soon be possible!

In so-called Saxon Switzerland, a national park located south of the city of Dresden, you’ll find breathtaking sandstone cliffs, unique rock formations, deep canyons, lush valleys, and amazing lookout points. ๐Ÿ”๏ธ

It’s a great place for an outdoorsy getaway. And the best part? As of March 25, 2024, it’s just a train ride away!

To Saxon Switzerland and beyond

Just in time for spring, European Sleeper, the creators of the Good Night Train, are adding not just one but two stops to their night train route: Dresden (Saxon Switzerland) and Prague. ๐Ÿ˜

This means that the international route will now service the major cities of:

  • Brussels
  • Amsterdam
  • Berlin
  • Dresden
  • Prague

How does it work?

Taking the night train is as easy as pie! Simply hop onboard the train from any of the following Dutch train stations: 

  • Roosendaal 
  • Rotterdam Centraal 
  • Den Haag HS
  • Amsterdam Centraal
  • Amersfoort Centraal 
  • Deventer

Next up, head to your seat, couchette, or sleeper cabin, nestle in, and fall asleep to the chugging of the train. Next stop: your chosen destination! ๐Ÿš‚

Say 'hoi' to Lyna, our Senior Writer at DutchReview! Fueled by a love for writing, social media, and all things Dutch, she joined the DR family in 2022. Since making the Netherlands her home in 2018, she has collected a BA in English Literature & Society (Hons.) and an RMA in Arts, Literature and Media (Hons.). Even though she grew up just a few hours away from the Netherlands, Lyna remains captivated by the guttural language, quirky culture, and questionable foods that make the Netherlands so wonderfully Dutch.


  1. Just a little tip: you have the Luxembourg flag by your name. ๐Ÿ‡ฑ๐Ÿ‡บ The Dutch flag is different. ๐Ÿ‡ณ๐Ÿ‡ฑ Thought you might want to know.

    • Hi John, I actually am from Luxembourg, not the Netherlands โ€” but thanks for letting me know! ๐Ÿ˜‰
