German train drivers are set to go on strike again, disrupting railway services in the country. The strike is part of various union disturbances slowly engulfing European countries. Unlike the previous strike, the railway strike in Germany will not last for 24 hours but only for eight hours. German trains will be stopped entirely from 3 a.m. to 11 a.m., disrupting several connections during this time.
As a result of the strike, several connections will be disrupted, including the EN Canopus night train from Prague to Zurich, which will not leave on Thursday. The limited links will also affect express trains between Prague, Berlin, Hamburg, and Munich. During the strike, the lines from Prague will only go to the last station in the Czech Republic, which means Děčín or Domažlice. Regional trains will only run to the previous Czech station and will not be operated beyond during the strike.
Despite the inconvenience caused by the strike, passengers can use their tickets at another time or receive a refund. It remains unclear how long the strikes will last or whether further disruptions will occur. However, with various union disturbances continuing to affect countries across Europe, it is clear that more disruptions may occur in the future, causing further inconvenience for travelers.

While passengers are being given the option to use their tickets at another time or receive a refund, it remains unclear how long the strikes will last or whether there will be further disruptions in the future.
