The Austrian railway utility ÖBB will launch its night-train service between Austria and Belgium on 19 January, starting from as low as €29.90 one-way, an ÖBB spokesman said on Friday.
The cheapest tickets provide no sleeping accommodation; a bunk will cost €49.99 per person.
The train, dubbed Nightjet, will leave Vienna or Innsbruck on Sundays and Wednesdays, reaching Belgium via Germany on the following morning. In Belgium, the train will stop in Liège, Bruxelles-Nord and Bruxelles-Midi (arriving at 10:55 AM).
