Looking back at 2019

  It felt like three days instead of 24 hours. What an atmosphere, what a music, what nice people!    – traveller

  We spent two fantastic days, surrounded by a great crowd of people and excellent music! This event was really very well organised.    – musician

Jazz Night Express in the news

The attention for the Jazz Night Express is overwhelming. Lovely to read so many enthusiastic reports and comments.

The attention for the Jazz Night Express is overwhelming. Lovely to read so many enthusiastic reports and comments.

More trains, less flying. The Jazz Night Express is an exciting way to travel. Obviously, not as fast as plane travel, but more sustainable and the fun starts on departure. If the railways no longer offer night trains, we will do so ourselves.

Since the liberation of the train travel market in Europe, it is possible for anyone to run their own train. Of course, this requires all manner of permits and licenses, as well as payment for train track usage. Luckily, we do not have to take care of all of this, ourselves, because chartering a train and hiring certified transport companies, is relatively easy.

Sonny Cheffing 

Sonny has gained a great deal of knowledge of foreign cuisine during his travels around the world. In Australia it is said that a cook does not “cook” but “cheffing” and this is where his company name came from. Back in the Netherlands, he quickly started working with Solkitchen. It is an honor to be able to provide dinner and breakfast to so many nice people on their way with the night train. It is all about the journey and not the destination.
