EUROPE | International rail lines from your city

How many international rail lines are there from your city.
You do not have to write the number of trains, but it does give a picture of how often the line is being used.

I start with Copenhagen, Denmark.

Regional lines:
Gothenburg, Sweden (1 train per hour)
Kalmar, Sweden (1 train per hour)
Karlskrona, Sweden (1 train per hour)
Malmö, Sweden (6 train per hour, inclusive the 3 above)

Intercity lines:
Flensburg, Germany (1 train per 2 hours)
Ystad, Sweden (3-5 trains per day) (it is connected to the ferry towards the Danish island of Bornholm)

Eurocity/HSR lines:
Hamburg, Germany (1 train per 2 hours)
Berlin, Germany (1 train per day)
Stockholm, Sweden ( 1 train per 3 hour) (200+ Km/h on conventional lines)

Night train lines:
Prague, Czech Republic (Via Hamburg and berlin)
Basel, Switzerland (Via Hamburg and Frankfurt)
Amsterdam, Netherlands (Via Hamburg and Cologne/Köln)

Brussels

One train per hour to Luxemburg (not really an international train but
rather a belgian domestic train extended to one station beyond the border).

We used to have one train per hour to Amsterdam, but that was before
the Fyra debacle. There are good hopes that it comes back.

Many - up to one every half hour at peak times, at least one per hour
in between - Thalys HST to Paris.

About 8 Thalys HST per day to Amsterdam.

About 8 Thalys HST per day to Köln.

4 DB ICE trains to Köln and Frankfurt.

About 10 Eurostar HST per day to London. Also call at Lille but I understand
it's not possible anymore to take this train to go to Lille, due to UK security
paranoïa.

About 6-8 french HST per day to south of France, also calling at Lille, Roissy,
and Disneyland, but not serving Paris Nord. Destinations vary with the season.

And finally, 3 trains per day to Switzerland.

All these are day trains, there are no more night trains in Belgium.

From Wroclaw:

EC:
1x daily: Hamburg (via Cottbus, Berlin)

Regional Express
3x daily: Dresden

Regional Train
2x daily + 1x extra on saturday and sunday: Lichkov (bordervillage in Czech Rep.)
2x daily: Usti nad Orlici (via Lichkov)
1x daily: Pardubice (via Lichkov, Usti nad Orlici)

An EC train connection to Prague would be nice. But in order to make such a connection faster than by car or bus, whatever chosen route would have to be restored to "higher" speeds first.

Interesting... Could you give some more information about this one ? Cities
served, frequency, available accomodation ? It could be an interesting
alternative for me to the transsiberian the next time I will go to China.
Something like Brussels-Köln-Berlin-Varsaw-Kiev-Astana-Urumqui-Xian.

Ukrainian railways managed by this gov company

Just type Kyiv (not Kiev) and Astana here
http://booking.uz.gov.ua/en/

It looks like only once a week. Say, I was able to find train for 02.22.2013.

If the words SV/Kupe/Platskart means anything to you, than you basicly know what to expect.

@NordikNerd
I believe that the night train to berlin is the same as the one to Prague.
And as bongo-anders wrote, is the line to München not in operation anymore.
But if you take the night train to Mannheim(the line to Basel), is it easy to come to München if you chance to ICE there.

@KingNick
Is the night train to Venice and Milano not the same???
BTW nice list.
