EuroNight Sleeper Trains

EuroNight trains (often abbreviated to EN) are mainline national and international overnight train services operating on the European rail network. The majority of EuroNight services are international, and are services operated jointly by rail companies operating in each of the companies served by the route. Many of the EuroNight routes operate carriages which are shared between the rail operators.

EuroNight trains tend to operate sleeping accommodation in addition to standard seats.


Couchettes are the middle-ground between seats and proper sleeping berths. As such, they tend to be cheaper than beds and more expensive than seats. They offer passengers the chance to lie down on padded beds with a blanket and pillow. Couchettes are generally offered in shared compartments with a number of other passengers.

Euronight services tend to offer a choice of 6-bed and 4-bed couchette cabins.

Sleeping Berths

Sleeping Berths are the most comfortable sleeping option for EuroNight passengers. They generally offer full mattres beds with sheets, blankets and pillows.

Euronight services generally offer 3-bed, 2-bed and 1-bed sleeping cabins, with private washing facilities.
