GreenCityTrip: chartered night trains from Breda in the Netherlands to Venice, Prague, Milan, Vienna, Prague, Verona and Innsbruck

No, it’s not a regular night train service, but Flywise Travel is organising citytrips with chartered night trains under de brand GreenCityTrip. From the Netherlands to Venice, Prague, Milan, Vienna, Verona and Innsbruck

The trips are only possible on specific days, as the trains are chartered. There’s room for 700 people per trip. 

The train will consist of a maximum of sixteen carriages, with a sleeper car and a couchette car. Photos on Treinreiziger.nl show former Deutsche Bahn UIC-X coaches. 

The first train departs 15 October from Breda to Prague. You can also board at Rotterdam Central, The Hague Hollands Spoor, Amsterdam Central, Utrecht Central and Arnhem Central. When the train returns on 19 October,  the train then leaves for Venice, which also stops at Innsbruck and Verona.

Departure is guaranteed, unless COVID-19 countermeasures make leisure travel impossible. 

Luring Belgians

Departure station Breda is not a coincidence. Breda is near Belgium and Flywise wants Belgian customers. 

Flywise expects 40 to 60 people in the couchettes and up to 20 in the beds.
