Day 20: the Netherlands
It might have been better with a real sleeper car, but just as in January, this Nightjet train is late when I wake up. I was supposed to be already in the Netherlands in the morning, but I can see the bridge in Cologne
Emmerich - the border station Germany/Netherlands
As I mentioned the sleeper car is different from other Nightjet services, there are no deluxe compartments, and there are no shower cabins on board.
"Akka van Kebnekaise" by Herman Lamers is referring to the bird in Niels Holgersson's fairy tale. It is available at Twello station
It's not cheap, a table for two costs about 200EUR with 3-course dinner and drinks
There is a choice of meat or fish
The whole trip takes about 2,5 hours, in this case from Rotterdam to Bergen op Zoom and back
