The SJ EuroNight trains are a pet friendly overnight gateway between Sweden and Germany. Cats and dogs are very welcome to travel in your private room, or in the second class carriage. As the name suggests, the great thing about the SJ EuroNights 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 year round between Stockholm, Sweden and Hamburg, Germany. Depending on the time of year, the SJ EuroNights will embark from two different stations in Hamburg. Over the summer months (April to September), you can also travel between Stockholm and Berlin.

SJ EuroNights Sleeper Train Pet Policy
A limited number of pet friendly couchettes are available on the SJ EuroNights sleeper train service between Stockholm and Hamburg or Berlin. You may bring two pets, and must book the entire private compartment regardless of the number of human travellers. A fixed price is payable for the compartment. Pets are not allowed on the seats or on the beds and need to stay on the floor during the entire journey.
Unlike many other sleeper train services, the same rules apply to the SJ EuroNights Sleeper as do for the company’s day trains. This means that if you don’t want to travel in a couchette, you may take two pets when travelling in second class, but you must reserve a seat in the Pets Allowed section of the train. In this case, your pet is not allowed on the seats and needs to stay on the floor during the entire journey. If your pet is not able to fit on the floor space in front of your seat, you need to purchase an extra seat by adding a youth ticket to your booking, however, your pet must still remain on the floor.
For smaller pets in cages, such as birds, rabbits or guinea pigs, each cage is counted as a pet. The cage may not be larger than regular carry-on luggage and must remain closed at all times. Cages may be places on unoccupied seats if you place some sort of protection between the seat and the cage. Pets that are not travelling in a cage must always stay on the floor, even if you have purchased an additional seat.
