The international route takes you from Stockholm, via Malmö and Copenhagen (Ørestad), to Hamburg and Berlin. On selected dates, this train also continues to Dresden.


During winter sports season, the Snälltåget night train from Malmö and Stockholm to Östersund, Åre, and Storlienis a great way to travel over 1200km through the Swedish countryside. You can relax in the comfort of your cabin as you travel north, and when you awake the next morning you will be in the mountains, ready to hit the slopes at the popular Åre ski resort, for instance. This train has a restaurant serving hot and cold food, and drinks. A sleeping bag, blanket, and pillow are also provided - so you don’t have to worry about a thing - just relax and enjoy the journey.
