School Groups

A school outing or a class trip is a very special experience.

A school outing or a class trip is a very special experience. With the Nightjet, ÖBB's night train, school groups travel cheaply to many European cities. See for yourself how attractive our range of offerings is!

School trips with the ÖBB Nightjet

Discover Amsterdam, Hamburg, Brussels, Rome, Zurich, Vienna, Berlin, Venice, Lake Garda and many other destinations: with the ÖBB Nightjet, you and your school class can travel cheaply, safely and conveniently. Enjoy the overnight trip together in a seating carriage or a comfortable couchette with breakfast. The next morning, you will arrive at your destination fully relaxed. This way, you save time as well as hotel expenses.

The number of seats is limited. You should therefore book your trip as early as possible!
