You forgot Vienna-Zagreb (EC-1 train per day) and Vienna-Berlin (EN-daily).

There are the Innsbruck-Franzensfeste Fortezza-Lienz trains (2 per day per direction, plus a single train to Lienz on Friday returning on Sunday).

Some regional trains Innsbruck-Bozen Bolzano might be created in the future (Südtirol bought trains also able to run in Austria).

Seen from Paris, yes they are ! (oh and I didn't choose the name of these trains/lines).


Actually, the TGV to Brussels was from Paris-Nord station (today from southern France via Paris-CDG) and uses the LGV-Nord-Europe (high speed line) which serves the north of Paris so it is called TGV-Nord.
The same about the TGV-Est (Européen) to Luxembourg & Germany, which starts at Paris-Est station and uses the LGV-Est-Européenne which serves the East of Paris.

As simple as that.

Brussels is north of northern France, as well as Cologne (northern Germany).
Luxembourg instead is north of eastern France, as well as Frankfurt/Main is northeast of eastern France (central Germany), and Stuttgart and Munich are east of eastern France (southern Germany).

That doesn´t mean that Luxembourg, and central and southern Germany are in Eastern Europe.

I read on the French wikipedia that there are talks since 2009 between the SNCF and the OBB in order to recreate a direct night service between Paris & Vienna by for example adding three sleeper cars to the CityNightLine train connecting Paris to Germany (just like they used to do with the Paris-Moscow car until 2011), then from Munich to Vienna, those cars would be pulled by the Munich-Vienna Railjet locomotive. But the article says that the SNCF has been reluctant to the idea so far, because those additional cars would overload the CityNightLine train on the Paris-Saarbrucken section (i.e. before its split into two diferent trains in Saarbrucken).

So ....

I don't think so, since those night trains are operated by a private company/consortium (owned conjointly by the RENFE & and the SNCF) and they are "semi-luxury" services if I may say so (named "Train-Hotel"), so the target market it not the same I guess...

Not to mention that Paris-Madrid, even 100% on high speed lines, still will be quite a long journey for a daytime train (approx. 7h-7h30 if I'm not mistaken).

I wonder which city in Europe (or the world) has the most international trains.

Nice thing to examine.....

(btw it certainly will not be Groningen, my city has only 1 train per hour to Leer, Germany)
