Both trains are planned to run daily.

Czech Railways wants to get into the business of long-distance night trains departing and terminating outside the Czech Republic.

The carrier is planning to launch trains from Munich to Warsaw via Vienna and from Graz to Berlin via Prague. This follows from a notice of the planned new service published on the Transport Infrastructure Access Authority website.

Both connections should start running from December 2023. The Munich – Warsaw night train should be a daily service with a capacity of 470 seats.

The train is scheduled to travel through the Czech territory via Breclav and Bohumin between 1 and 3 a.m. Departure and arrival times at other stations outside the Czech Republic are not available.

The night train from Graz to Berlin will have a capacity of 450 passengers and run daily. The draft timetable expects running via Breclav, Brno, Pardubice, Prague-Holesovice and Decin. It is scheduled to depart from Breclav at 11.55 p.m. and arrive at Decin at 4.55 a.m. In the opposite direction, the train is due to depart from Decin at 11.02 p.m. and arrive at Breclav at 4.10 a.m. Publishing the notice is no guarantee the trains will actually run; it is the first step however that the carrier is obliged to take to introduce a commercial line.
