Dresden

Dresden is the capital city of Saxony, in Germany. The city is in the valley of the River Elbe, close to the country's border with the Czech Republic. 

Dresden Hauptbahnhof and Dresden-Neustadt are the city's most important railway stations, with routes to Berlin, Prague and other national and international destinations. The city also offers commuter trains and trams.

How to get to Dresden from
Route 1:

The service between Prague and Budapest is operated by the EuroNight 'Metropol' sleeper train service. Both first and second class sleeping accommodation is available onboard, as well as second class couchettes. A second class seating carriage is also available, although obviously not as comfortable as the other options.

This route is shared between Berlin and Brno with another EuroNight sleeper train service to/from Vienna.

Route 2:

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.
