Fuck yeah trains!
Today the night train service started between Vienna and Brussels, and it will start between Vienna and Amsterdam from next year.
Convenient and great for the environment.
I was in Hauptbahnhof and an orchestra played belgian themes to celebrate it and they handed out waffles. It was nice
@szbalint does it stop in Munich? Nice way to get to FOSDEM :)
@jwildeboer the nightjet from Innsbruck goes via Munich so yes ;)
@szbalint oooh what do I look for to see timetables and costs? That sounds amazing
@szbalint it's quoting me EUR 278 wien-berlin for 2 adults, one child, sleeper cabin, one month advance purchase. A bargain I think
@szbalint I was so afraid ÖBB would cancel their night train services but lately it looks like they're going to expand it?
@szbalint I seriously don't understand why they celebrate that like it's a grand achievement never before attempted by humanity.
There used to be direct night trains between Vienna and Amsterdam for a long time. I took the trip as a kid once. I took it again twice in my twenties, and the last time in my early 30s. They just stopped that service some time ago and now they act like it's a breakthrough that it gets re-instated?!
