Overview

The Netherlands is not all about Amsterdam.

The national railway company of the Netherlands is known as the Nederlandse Spoorwegen (NS). The Netherlands has over 2,800 km of railway network. Train tickets for trains operating in the Netherlands can be booked in advance. International trains connect the Netherlands with neighbouring countries such as France and Belgium. Book train tickets to visit main cities of the Netherlands by train. Dutch cities including Amsterdam, Rotterdam and Eindhoven are all served by trains.

Cityscape

Cycle along Amsterdam’s canals and through the Museum Quarter before heading south to Rotterdam’s post-war architecture. Take the Netherlands’ NS train to The Hague, travel north to Groningen’s lively student ambience or visit cosmopolitan Maastricht in the surprisingly hilly south.

Landscape

Travel by train to the Netherlands’ northern provinces of Overijssel and Drenthe and cycle through verdant fields and swim in clear lakes. Walk on the seabed during low tide from the far northern mainland to the Waddeneilanden (West Frisian Islands). In freezing climes, skate along frozen canals.

Take Home

Shop for vivid blue ceramics in Delft, Vermeer’s hometown, and browse the country’s biggest clog factory in Beltrum. Buy Dutch cheeses in Gouda and Edam and buy flower bulbs from Keukenhof.

Eat & Drink

Sample raw herring, stop by traditional pancake houses (pannekoekenhuis) or try patatje oorlog, chips in mayonnaise, ketchup, peanut sauce and onions. In traditional ‘brown’ cafés, order a beer with bitterballen, meat croquettes, or uitsmijter, an open fried egg, ham and cheese sandwich.

New Perspective

Book a train to The Netherland’s south-west Friesland province and stay at Stavoren’s De Vrouwe van hotel where four giant wine casks have been turned into en-suite hotel rooms.

    Poor Advice |
    "Having not used this service before and being a foreigner we saw the advice on printed Thalys ticket that "for safety reasons, your presence on the Thalys platform is mandatory at least 2 minutes before the train's departure and assumed the process would be simple. However, when we got to the Gare Nord station and were directed by locals to a lift (we had baggage and my wife had hurt her back after slipping on ice in Switzerland) we got stuck at turnstyle type entry as our printed Thalys "ticket" did not get us through. We were severely delayed as locals tried to help (even holding ticked over scanner, etc.) and communication was difficult (we do not speak French). By the time we were redirected to another entrance that did not require turn-style access (I assume the first access we were directed to by locals was for Metro and not Thalys train) we had missed the train. We were then forced to by new tickets at Euro 130 each (Euro 90 for my under 26 year old daughter)! The original tickets cost Euro 20! (hence my rating of 5 stars for "Value for money). At the price of Euro 130 each I would have flown and not take the train, but had no options at that point. Thankfully the train trip itself was most pleasant and relaxing with access to WiFi while we drank a bottle of red French wine to drown our sorrows. "

    "The train was crowded and uncomfortable. It was also very hot. The security lines were backed up because of a faulty piece of equipment. We barely made it on the train on time. "
