A night train linking Berlin and Paris will return in December, nine years after the service was cancelled, the Austrian rail operator ÖBB has announced.
ÖBB has been a pioneer in bringing back night trains as Europeans look for low-carbon travel options.
“The service will start on 11 December from Berlin with three trips per week before becoming a daily service in October 2024,” said Bernhard Rieder, an ÖBB spokesperson, on Wednesday.
The trains will make stops in Strasbourg, Mannheim, Erfurt and Halle.
ÖBB will make Mannheim a hub for night trains, with its Brussels-Vienna and Paris-Vienna services also making stops in the city.
