European Sleeper Launches New Night Train from Brussels to Prague: Setting the Stage for Expansion

Night Train from Berlin stops in Dresden and continues to Prague

European Sleeper has announced a new direct night train from Brussels to the Czech Republic. The train will depart from Brussels South three times a week, on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays at 7:22 PM in Brussels and 8:01 PM in Antwerp. The route will include stops in Bad Schandau, Decin, Usti nad Labem before reaching the capital city Prague.

The night train will pass through Berlin in the early morning and stop in Dresden two hours later before arriving in Prague before 11 a.m. Return trips from Prague to Brussels will occur on Sunday, Tuesday, and Thursday evenings. European Sleeper co-founder Elmer van Buuren expressed excitement about the new connection to Prague following the successful launch of the Brussels to Berlin route.

The company plans to add new routes each year, with a projected Amsterdam-Brussels-Barcelona connection in the near future. European Sleeper’s expansion plans include introducing new routes annually, with the potential for an Amsterdam-Brussels-Barcelona connection in coming years. The Nightjet from the Austrian railway company ÖBB also offers a Brussels to Vienna route providing competition for European Sleeper.

Recently, European Sleeper tested the new train route with the goal of attracting more travelers from Brussels and Amsterdam to Dresden and Prague. The company expects that around 40 percent of travelers will opt for this extended connection as part of their expansion plans.
