My preferred train route down to the continent from Scandinavia used to be the night train from Copenhagen to Hamburg, but it didn’t pop up when I searched online this time. Maybe it’s been scrapped. However, a direct night train from Malmö to Berlin showed up, and I suddenly got this urge to see Berlin again. Also, Hamburg seemed a bit unsettled as this was in the middle of the G20 summit.
It also includes a four-hour overnight parking session on the German side. Why? Because no-one wants to get up at 2.30AM when they’ve paid for a couchette. Clever. Though I must say it’s easier to sleep on a train while it’s moving.
