from Praha / Prague/ Prag to Zurich by train

The overnightservices from Prague/Praha to Zurich are the only direct trains from Czechia to Switzerland.
Travelling by day on trains from Prague/Praha to Zurich involves making connections in Linz OR Munchen/Munich, but on both routes the connections on to Czechia involve fairly lengthy journeys on the type of trains typically used for regional services, so they lack the ambience and facilities typically found on express trains.

But what's new is that from December 11th and into 2023 there will be a choice of two overnight train services when travelling from the capital of Czechia to Switzerland's largest city.
