With direct links to city centers and fares starting at just 19 euros between border-zone cities, traveling with DB Bahn saves time and money! Or discover the cities of "good old Europe" and travel overnight! Reach Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Paris, Prague, Rome, Venice or Zurich while you are sleeping. After a relaxing journey with City Night Line you can make the most of your day.

Sip a drink, stretch your legs at your leisure, or stay connected with friends and colleagues as the beautiful European countryside speeds by. All this is possible with our saver fare for international trips from/to Germany, the so-called "Europa-Spezial".
