Service Review: City Night Line by Deutsche Bahn

There are many great ways how to travel in Germany. One of them is the City Night Line by the Deutsche Bahn. That connects many German cities with each other and also takes you to other European cities.

I tested it between Berlin and Munich in November on my way to the White Start Games in Zell Am See – Kaprun in Austria. The distance between Berlin and Munich is about 600 kms and since I was busy during the day I decided to travel to Munich overnight.

Watch the Video to see what I thought about the City Night Line!

Have you ever traveled with an overnight train? How was your experience? Like it, Hate it, Don’t really care about it? We are looking forward to your opinion in the comments below!

Disclaimer: I was invited to travel with the City Night Line by the Deutsche Bahn. However, they never asked me to write or say anything positive about it. As usually, all thoughts are my own!

    I’ve been travelling a lot by night trains, not only in Germany but all over Europe (plus China and Georgia) and I can only recommend it to everyone. You save time on travelling overnight, you get a fairly decent sleep for a cheap price and well, train travel is always the best to meet local people. Besides, the sound of wheels on the track and the train movement make you fall asleep really easily!

    The only problem I found with night trains is that they’re either over heated or extremely cold, it’s hard to find the average temperature…

    Took the night train from Paris to Florence.
    A little odd to share a couche with 4 strangers overnight and unlike a hostel, I couldn’t leave them, not really, not for long. Don’t think I’ll do it again – feel like I missed seeing a lot of ‘stuff’ (albeit from a speeding train, but still).

    Great review man! I’m fairly indifferent to over night trains. I think the comfort and noise is comparable to some hostels, lol.

    However, I do really like the facts you’re combining travel & lodging costs. And how many travels say it’s cool to be going to sleep in one place and waking up in another!

    I loved their service! It was small and we had to put my suitcase under the bed and my roommates next to the ladder. I paid around 130 euros instead of $750 for the plane tickets. I traveled from Nürnberg to Rome (the ice: Nurnberg to Munchen and CNL Munchen to Rome). I slept very sound and had a huge breakfast. Would highly recommend! Would be nice to see updated services on your website!
