Rail travel has increased in popularity over the past few years for a number of reasons. During the pandemic, it was preferable to catch a train rather than waiting in an often crowded airport to board an equally crowded plane. Plus, you get to admire the scenery and stretch your legs on night trains. People are also more mindful now than ever before of the terrible environmental impact aeroplanes have.
So, we’re super excited to announce that from today you will be able to catch the night train to Vienna, Prague, Milan, Florence, Venice and Copenhagen! There are 25 planned departure dates and the night trains will run until the winter, and you could even bag tickets cheaper than similar plane tickets.
Although it will take longer than taking to the air, Mariken Stolk of Milieu Centraal thinks that younger people will find this way of traveling more appealing:
‘We see that especially young people find train travel interesting […] For them, the train journey is really part of the holiday. It is part of the complete adventure.’
Make sure to check the website for dates before you book because some of the trains are seasonal. Already people are booking their tickets and some of the carriages are already sold out, which just goes to show how people are really embracing rail travel nowadays.
