Travel inspiration in Amsterdam and Cologne
Amsterdam, capital city of the Netherlands
Amsterdam, the capital city of the Netherlands, is located in the province of North Holland. The city got its name from a dam in the river Amstel and was a small fishing village at its creation. Nowadays Amsterdam is a busy seaport and one of the top European financial centres as well as a major cultural hub. The canals, world-famous museums and historical sights makes Amsterdam one of the most romantic and beautiful cities in Europe. It has all the advantages of a big city: culture, nightlife, restaurants with international cuisine, good transport system. However, the city has also a quiet and relaxed atmosphere largely thanks to its extensive canals, low road traffic, small green parks and flower fields. In Amsterdam, places of interest are never far away, get a bike or hop on a tram for an authentic local experience. Amsterdam can be reached easily by train from other European capitals - Paris, London or Brussels.
Cologne, enjoy every minute of this amazing German city!
It’s hard to miss the soaring twin towers of Cologne’s landmark Gothic cathedral. But to see what really makes this German city tick, pick a cosy inn on the River Rhine, order a glass of Kölsch beer and enjoy a chat with the friendly locals.
Reviews & ratings Amsterdam - Cologne
Poor WiFi was an issue for me.
The free Wifi was intermittent and needs improvement.
The staff to activate teh Europass is very nice and helpful, teach us how to fill in the form in the pass. But the staff on the train (Ams - Koeln) to check tickets is a bit rude. We have filled in the travel log, but forgot the date on the pass, the staff presumed we intended to do so.
We loved our trip on Thalys! It was on-time;very comfortable and relaxing
Convenient and Comfort, Service in ticket office in main station are good. Searching the train timetable is very important to customer. Most of the customer need to go to information counter to check. Wasting time and there may have communication issue. I think the on line time table in ticket machine is very good. I think it is better to have some individual time table checking machine for guest in main station will be much more convienent to a new traveler for the city.
On time , quiet trains, looked after you in first class.wifi was a bit hit and miss. Get tickets booked early you can save a fortune!!
Enjoying the view along the route to Amsterdam. Extra leg room can add to the comfort.
***** Excellent for comfort . value for money and convenience. Travelling with family from Koln to Amsterdam under 3 hrs with the train going at a speed of 250km/hr was an enjoyable experience. Enjoyed the coffee from the Bistro as well.
My response is months overdue but I would like to mention that the ICE train trips are always a wonderful experience. The train is clean, fast and always on time. We will certainly make use of the ICE train for our future visits to Europe.
More security feature inside the train to easily catch pickpockets and to safeguard the passengers luggage
