Euronight (Metropol)

These trains convey:

- Compartment Seats (Sitzwagen) and/or standard daytime 'open-plan' coaches
- Couchettes (Liegewagen); 4 berths AND 6 berths
- Standard sleeping cars (Schlafwagen) with 3 bed, 2 bed and 1 cabins
- Deluxe sleeping cars (Schlafwagen) with 3 bed, 2 bed and 1 cabins

The compartment seats:

These are seats that face each other that can, in theory, be pulled flat to create a sort of bed.
However, to make use of this facility you need to have a spare seat opposite to yours.

The seats are grouped in rows of 3, so a total of six seats, can be arranged so that three people can lie down on one large bed (cosy).
However, this isn't guaranteed.

If too many seats are occupied then converting them into beds won't be possible.

However, seats on these trains may NOT be in compartments. 

Ordinary daytime open-plan coaches can also be used on these trains.

Washing facilities are available - find them in the couchette coaches.

Drinks and snacks are available from vending machines.

The couchettes:

A berth in a 4 berth compartments is more expensive than in a 6 berth compartment.

Sheets and pillows are provided.

Washing facilities are available (shared with the other compartments).

Complimentary bottle of mineral water and breakfast tray provided

Standard sleeping cabins:

Bed linen and slippers provided.

Washing facilities in cabin (sink/basin with soap and towels)
