Klieken, Rodleben, Magdeburg Herrenkrug, Niederndodeleben

I've been traveling from Sweden to Spain for Christmas/New Year now since 2015, with the only exception for 2020 due to Covid. This year I'm taking trains as well, I will travel by night trains as much as possible. 
The winter is here

Rc3 at Degerfors station

My first train on this winter Interrail trip is Tågab train from Degerfors to Stockholm


From Stockholm, I'm taking the night train to Berlin
Between Stockholm and Malmö, there is a restaurant coach with warm food and cold drinks

Couchette compartment at Snälltåget
Pillow from Ikea
Enough USB chargers

At Malmö, more couchette cars are connected, while some seat cars are disconnected

From Malmö to Padborg there is a Traxx locomotive 

In the morning, it's time for breakfast

Roßlau station

Not far from Roßlau is the Rodleben station
I'm now at Trebnitz-Leipzig railway
The Trebnitz–Leipzig railway is a double track electrified main line in the German states of Saxony-Anhalt and Saxony built and originally operated by the Berlin-Anhalt Railway Company. It formally starts at Trebnitz on the former border between the Duchy of Anhalt and Prussia and runs via Dessau and Delitzsch to Leipzig. The section from Bitterfeld to Leipzig is part of Line 1 of the Trans-European Transport Networks (TEN-T). Until 1871, the Zerbst–Roßlau section was called the Anhaltische Leopoldsbahn (Anhalt Leopold's railway). (Wikipedia)

The locomotive has flags of 7 countries, where it is capable to operate

At Braunschweig I'm chainging trains, in order to get to Hamburg. First an Intercity train 
At Hannover I'm changing to ICE
Having a beer in the restaurant car


Here in Hamburg, I have to go and test myself for Covid, since I'm entering Austria and Italy on the following day. It turned out that nobody was checking any test results in any country I was visiting on this trip, so I was just wasting my time and money. The test was negative by the way

This time I'm taking NJ 40491 to Innsbruck

The only good thing with Corona was that I could book a single sleeper compartment just days before without any problem. In normal case everything is fullbooked months in advance
I can see that ÖBB/Newrest have replaced Italian Prosecco with German Trocken. Also good, but more sweet.
