Dortmund

Dortmund is the eighth largest city in Germany. The city lies to the north of the River Ruhr, and is host to Dortmund Port which is Europe's largest canal port. The city boasts numerous green spaces, parks and waterways.

The city's main station, Dortmund Hauptbahnhof, is the country's third busiest station. The city is well connected by public transport, with a complete underground rail system.

How to get to Dortmund from
Route 1:

The City Night Line service between Amsterdam and Copenhagen takes place aboard the Borealis sleeper train. A restaurant car serves passengers between Hamburg and Copenhagen. There are two border crossing points at Emmerich and Flensburg.

Route 2:

There is one direct service per day between Amsterdam and Prague, although there are plenty of indirect services that involve a change at Berlin (although that route is dealt with on a separate page). This service is operated daily by Deutsche Bahn's City Night Line sleeper service, Kopernikus / Phoenix, and calls at Cologne and Berlin en route.

Route 3:

The Amsterdam to Moscow sleeper train is a EuroNight sleeper service, also calling at stations including Berlin and Cologne. It runs once a day, every day, with a variety of sleeping options, and covering a total distance of 2,757km.

If travelling to/from Scotland or northern England, this route can be quicker than rail-only alternatives, when combined with the Harwich - Hook of Holland (Stena Line) service.

The sleeping car has ten compartments which are configured as either 3-berths, 2-berths or single berths. You can opt to share a multiple berth compartment with a stranger, if you would rather not pay the extra for a single berth. Each compartment doubles up as a sitting room during the day time, with beds that fold down for the evening. Each room has its own basin, and towels and toiletries are provided.

There is a dining car that serves the train between Rzepin and Warsaw, so make sure you bring some extra food and drink with you to last the journey. The carriage attendant is also able to serve tea to passengers en route.
