ÖBB Nightjet Sleeper Trains

ÖBB Nightjet sleeper trains are a pet friendly overnight gateway between EU member states. Dogs are very welcome to travel in your private room, and other pet species may be allowed to travel in a cage. As the name suggests, the great thing about the ÖBB Nightjet sleeper trains is that it’s an overnight service, therefore you can snooze away the journey with your dog, and arrive at your destination feeling refreshed! Trains travel between Austria, Belgium, Croatia, France, Germany, Holland, Italy and Switzerland giving you plenty of choice for your European pet travel trip.
