Travel better. Choose the best, for yourself and for the planet.

Air travel dominates today’s European transportation market.
This quasi-monopoly is strong, and yet…

The experience being sold by commercial airlines is outdated. It’s time to retire the short-haul flight.

The experience of flying around Europe is inefficient and marked by stress and discomfort.The speed the airlines offer is an illusion, and a 1-hour flight is actually a grueling 4-hour trip from door to door. Finally–and most importantly–air travel produces high carbon emissions. Midnight Trains was born of these observations. It’s time to choose a more comfortable, efficient, and sustainable alternative.

We believe that the journey is as important as the destination, and that every moment is precious. Seeking to reconnect the beating hearts of our largest European cities, we set ourselves a challenge: create a hotel on rails, thereby reawakening the enchanting experience of the night train.

Midnight Trains is the Future

In 2024 we will launch the first line from our Paris hub. This will lay the foundation for our ambitious plan to create a network of more than 10 destinations, each between 800 and 1,500 km from Paris.

We cannot wait to welcome you aboard. Join us in shaping the future of travel: a combination of modern sustainability and glorious Roaring 20’s charm.
