Given their spectacular levels of luxury, comfort, convenience, affordability and eco-friendliness, it’s no wonder that night trains are making a serious comeback in Europe. And in 2023 the sleeper boom certainly isn’t slowing down – this year plenty of new routes are launching that we can’t wait to ride

There are so many night trains launching, in fact, that it can even be a little difficult to keep track of them all. Fortunately, the kind and clever folks over at Back-on-Track, a European network that promotes cross-border night trains, are here to help.

Back-on-Track has created a map that shows all the different night train operators’ routes  both current services and those scheduled to begin this year. It also shows how often the routes run, as well as important connections between different services.

Needless to say, it’s a marvellous map. Here it is, in all its glory.

Did you see that a brand-new sleeper train linking several European cities is launching soon?
