As of 2021, Germany, Austria, France and Switzerland intend to offer new international overnight train services – for example from Berlin to Paris. Leading partner rail companies agreed on this on the sidelines of the meeting of EU transport ministers on 8 December, chaired by Federal Transport Minister Andreas Scheuer. "The TransEuropExpress TEE 2.0 and attractive overnight rail services will make mobility in Europe more climate- and environment-friendly in future," said Andreas Scheuer. This, he said, is a concrete outcome of Germany’s Presidency of the Council of the European Union.
