The City Night Line service between Amsterdam and Copenhagen takes place aboard the Borealis sleeper train. A restaurant car serves passengers between Hamburg and Copenhagen. There are two border crossing points at Emmerich and Flensburg.
Dusseldorf is situated at the centre of the Rhine-Ruhr region, and is a respected financial centre. It is the seventh largest city in Germany in terms of population, and one of the country's five global cities.
The city is a major hub in terms of rail movement, with more than 1000 trains stopping at the city each day.
There are a number of services that operate between Amsterdam and Frankfurt. This particular service is the high-speed Inter City Express (ICE), operated by Deutsche Bahn.
There is one direct service per day between Amsterdam and Prague, although there are plenty of indirect services that involve a change at Berlin (although that route is dealt with on a separate page). This service is operated daily by Deutsche Bahn's City Night Line sleeper service, Kopernikus / Phoenix, and calls at Cologne and Berlin en route.
The key cities of Amsterdam, Munich and Innsbruck are connected by an overnight City Night Line (CNL) sleeper service known as 'Pollux', that also travels via Cologne, Frankfurt and Stuttgart.
The same journey can be made during the day if so desired, although requires a change of train at Frankfurt.
