Overview

There aren’t many greener countries than the Netherlands, where biking and rail riding are the two preferred modes of transport.

There aren’t many greener countries than the Netherlands, where biking and rail riding are the two preferred modes of transport. Don’t expect luxury, but comfort, convenience, and user-friendliness.

Domestic trains run from very early morning (around 5 a.m.) to late at night (1 a.m.). Distances are short and trains are fast—the longest ride (from capital city Amsterdam to Maastricht) takes just 2 ½ hours. Better still, trains are incredibly frequent : the smallest station on the most remote line offers an hourly service. And, on main lines, there can be up to eight trains an hour. First class is a good choice, especially during crowded peak times.

There are no reservations on domestic services. International trains, though, require a pre-assigned seat even for a domestic journey (included when you purchase your ticket from Rail Europe). If you travel with a pass, you can purchase a reservation either from us or locally. The pass lets you roam freely (no need to take the international trains). Keep it handy and walk (or bike !) to the nearest station. You’ll feel like you’re riding the New York subway system—but with really plush seats !

Amsterdam is also very well connected to the rest of Europe. Hi-speed Thalys trains run frequently to Brussels and Paris. ICE hi-speed trains go to Basel and Frankfurt, and the ultra-comfortable City Night Line trains take you overnight to Copenhagen, Munich, Zurich, Milan, and Berlin in a luxury cabin with private bathroom and breakfast served in your comfy bed, complete with duvet and pillow.

Schipol International Airport is very well connected to the entire domestic network, and offers direct service to Brussels and Paris via Thalys. So depending on your plans, there’s no need to sleep in Amsterdam on your first or last night in the Netherlands.

Good to know : many stations offer bike-rentals. You can travel on the train with your bike, and conveniently return it in a different city. Just look for the bike rental office in your station—and go green !

  • Resumo de minha viagem |
    "Confortável, chegamos ao destino descansados. Valor um pouco alto, mas deixamos para adquirir as passagens na última hora, por isso o alto preço. Conveniente, pois é mais rápido e confortável do que viajar por via aérea. "

  • Good |
    "Very fast journey. Comfortable. "

  • Better than flying |
    "Coming from Australia I assumed flights would be far better than trains but having the stations right in the centre of the city made it much more convenient and easier to manage without a phone. The train was smooth and quick. "

  • Trouble free,excellent journey |
    "Excellent service.We booked and printed tickets on line which scanned easily on day of journey. All baggage x rayd so great security before entering platform. Allocated seating upon booking. Train on time. Value for money 5 stars. (auto star system not working. )22 euros per person each way. "
