More information about the program from September. Please check at the bottom of the page, how we deal with the corona virus.

The Jazz Night Express is part of the program of North Sea Round Town, fringe festival of North Sea Jazz in Rotterdam. The return journey of the Jazz Night Express is organised by the great Berlin jazz festival XJAZZ.

Traveling together through the summer night. In a proper night train with a classic dining car.

Three live jazz stages. DJs all through the night.

You’ll be rocked asleep in your compartment. Wake up slowly in the morning as we enter Berlin.

All travel times are still approximate


It is currently not possible to predict how the situation with the coronavirus will be in July 2021. Keeping 1,5 metres distance is virtually impossible on the Jazz Night Express. We assume that by then there will be another way to make the journey safe for everyone. In any case, we adhere to the then applicable rules.

We will keep you informed of the latest insights on the website and in the newsletter. In the unlikely event that the train cannot run in 2021, anyone who already has a ticket, just like this year, can simply get their money back.
