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 !

    "It was a good experience, difficult Part was finding the right compartment from the Amsterdam station. No officer was found on the plat form. Initially One train came, but my compartment number was not there, I went here and there, but no one was there to clarify. suddenly i saw 2 nd train has been attached with my compartment. I have to hurry with the time. This problem was not only for me but to other travelers as well. Need some mechanism to guide. "

    Enjoyable Ride from Munich |
    "I took the ICE train from Munich Central Station to Frankfurt Airport. The total journey took about 5 hours, an hour longer than scheduled due to weather elements and stops along the way. The ride was comfortable, very affordable and extremely convenient. The Wifi was not working for some reason but I had dataroam so was not a problem. There was refreshments (add-on) and the seat was very comfortable. I would recommend this to flying if you can afford the time as you can view the scenery and the different towns it stopped along the way. "
