The Map For Traveling Across Europe By Sleeper Train

Sleeper trains are the sought-out option for people traveling for multiple days, even before the introduction of air travel. These trains provide cabins and beds where people can sleep while they go from one place to another. 

These kinds of trains are now making a serious comeback in Europe with their level of luxury, comfort, convenience, and affordability. New routes are being launched by different companies to provide more accessibility to travelers on the continent. With a lot of night trains launching, Back-on-Track, a European network that promotes cross-border night trains, decided to create a map that shows all the available routes running across the continent.

I did the sleeper train last fall from Berlin to Malmö. I didn't sleep that well, with the stop&go motion. I was in a 6-bed couchette and others in the room both got on and left while I tried to sleep. We had a stop at the Danish border at 2am to allow a passport check. The route itself was only recently restarted, and they were using 20-year-old stock. Then again, that same route was a lot easier when I first did it 15 years ago in my late 30s.
The big plus for me is I don't live near an airport. The flight connections to get home meant I would have had to leave Berlin in the mid-afternoon (cutting my event short) or stay an extra night in Berlin.
I really want the Brussels-Malmö overnight train. Currently getting to the Low Countries by train requires an overnight hotel in Hamburg. But as the link points out, it's not profitable enough to deal with the red-tape headaches.
7 years ago my wife and I did San Diego-ABQ by Amtrak, via L.A. With only two people in a room and longer trip (and no passport control) it was more pleasant.
