European Sleeper no longer gives a start date.

The Dutch company European Sleeper has announced on its website that the planned launch of a new overnight train between Brussels, Amsterdam and Prague will not take place this summer.

“It appears it is not possible to start the new Brussels–Amsterdam–Berlin–Prague night train in the summer of 2022. To avoid disappointment, we are not giving a new start date for the time being,” says the European Sleeper website. Originally, there was talk of a launch this spring.

The train is to run in cooperation with RegioJet, which already published its planned timetable last year. The train was supposed to run via Berlin, where it would connect with a train from Poland. Complications with the launch of the service were confirmed by RegioJet, which said the new line faces difficult negotiations with national carriers in Belgium and the Netherlands.
