This journey is NOT possible when departing from Wien/Vienna on a Friday.

Change trains in: Koln/Cologne and Bruxelles/Brussels

The OBB Nightjet train, that usually departs from Wien at 20:41, is due to arrive in Koln hbf station at 08:15.

At 09:43 an ICE train departs from Koln Hbf for Bruxelles/Midi and on any day of the week, except for Saturday, this ICE train has a connection at Bruxelles-Midi station of around 1hr 20 mins into a Eurostar on to London.

However, despite these nicely timed connections, that should ensure a comparatively stress free journey, no ticket agent seemingly sells tickets for an end2end journey on this combination of trains.

So the only option is to book separate tickets for the Wien/Vienna to Koln/Cologne and Koln/Cologne to London journeys.
