Night trains to Venice, Prague, Milan, Verona (and more!) coming to the Netherlands

Flying is so 2019, and the travel industry knows it. Dutch railway stations will soon be adding destinations such as Venice, Verona, Vienna, Innsbruck, Milan and Prague to its board โ€” and you can snooze all the way there!

Forget planes, airports and a lack of leg space โ€” on these night trains, you’ll be able to stretch out and sleep. Let your head hit the pillow in Amsterdam and wake up in Venice, my friend.

Who, what, where and when

Here’s the lowdown. The trains have been chartered by GreenCityTrip.nl and will begin on October 15 from Breda to Prague, with additional boardings at Rotterdam Central, The Hague HS, Amsterdam Central, Utrecht Central, and Arnhem Central, reports Treinreiziger.nl.

The trains will run twice a week to different destinations and, if you board in the evening, you can sleep your way across the continent.

You’ll also likely sleep a lot easier knowing that you’re doing the environment a small kindness. After all, trains are a much more sustainable solution when it comes to travel โ€” hence GreenCityTrip.nl!

  1. Good morning, Sarah.
    Will the trains Ams-Verona-Ams (and the others as well) be only operating six days or so per year?
    I have tried to check this, but I cannot read Dutch.
    Would you please help me understand this?
    Thank you!

    • Hey Federica, thanks for reaching out! According to their website there are currently 12 departure dates listed. Unfortunately, the website is only listed in Dutch, but if you have more questions regarding specific services, I would reach out to GreenCityTrip or Flywise (whose website can be accessed in English: https://flywise.nl/nl/#). I hope this helps ๐Ÿ™‚
