Berth and sleeping compartment tickets for night trains

On night trains, it is possible to travel in a seat or a berth. Berth and compartment prices depend on the travel date and whether you are travelling downstairs or upstairs in the double-deck car.


Berth Saver tickets

With berth Saver tickets, you will always travel affordably in the night train berths.

  • downstairs berth only €49

  • upstairs berth only €58

Students, children and pensioners can get discounts on Saver tickets. Berth Saver tickets can only be purchased for a night train journey, which means a possible connection to a night train or you need to purchase a separate train ticket from the night train.​ Please also note, that saver tickets are limited to a number of selected departures.

When you travel in a sleeping-car, you can book a berth in a compartment for 2 or 3 persons or book the entire sleeping compartment for you or your group.

A berth in an upstairs sleeping compartment with a shower is €9 more expensive than a berth in a downstairs compartment. The blue car berth price is the same as a downstairs berth in a double-deck car.

Children’s berths

A child up to 10 years of age travels for free on board a night train in the same berth as their parent when no separate berth is booked.
