    ÖBB Nightjet

    Travelling to Munich or further on to Austria? Save yourself valuable time and expensive hotels. Depart to Berlin or Dusseldorf from Amsterdam in the early afternoon and catch Austrian Railway’s new night train: the ÖBB Nightjet. In the morning you will arrive at your destination well-rested and ready to go.


    You can book your ÖBB Nightjet tickets as of 180 days before departure. Book as early as possible because the cheapest tickets are usually first to go.
    You can book by phone (030-2300023) or at the International Desk at the station.


    After departing from Amsterdam at 18.37 with ICE International, you will catch the ÖBB Nightjet in Dusseldorf at 20.54 hrs. This night train does not only travel to Munich, Kufstein, Wörgl and Innsbruck, but also to Passau, Linz and Vienna.

    Tip: when changing trains at Düsseldorf Hbf, you will need to go to the other side of the arrival platform. You have 8 minutes to change trains. You could also take an earlier train at 16.35 hrs and arrive in Dusseldorf at 18.46 hrs. This will give you enough time to grab a bite to eat in town. You can leave your luggage in a locker at the station.
