New Night Train Will Take you From Prague to Germany and Switzerland
Czech national rail operator ČD is reviving a sleeper route between some of central Europe’s most fascinating cultural hotspots.

The Czech Republic’s national rail operator Czech Railways (České dráhy or ČD) has announced a new sleeper service that will go from Prague to the Swiss city of Zurich via Dresden, Leipzig, Frankfurt am Main and Basel.

The new service will be called the ‘Canopus’ train and it’ll be a collaborative project with the national rail providers of Austria (ÖBB), Switzerland (SBB) and Germany (DB). It’s a revival of an old service that closed down back in 2017.

The trains themselves will consist of several seating classes, with couchette tickets starting at €69 and fares for sleeping car compartments starting from €89.

The service will leave Prague at 6.25 pm and arrive in Zurich at 9:05 am, while the return will depart Zurich at 7:59 pm and arrive back in Prague at 9.25 am.
