New night train between Berlin, Paris and Brussels set to make inaugural journey

A new night train bound for Brussels and Paris is set to depart from Berlin on Monday evening. The Nightjet will connect the cities three times a week initially, with a daily service planned from October 2024.

For the first journey on Monday evening, half of the train will go to Brussels, the other half to Paris. The connection is operated by the state railway companies of Germany, Austria, France and Belgium.

German Transport minister Volker Wissing and the head of Deutsche Bahn, Richard Lutz, will see the train off as it leaves Berlin at 20.18. Trains over the holiday period are fully booked.

A night train has been running between Brussels and Berlin since the end of May, operated by the Dutch-Belgian railway company European Sleeper. However, this is the first time in nine years that the extra connection to Paris has been available via night train.
