Cheap train between Amsterdam and Berlin

Just looking for the cheapest way to travel from Amsterdam to Berlin and back again for 8 people?

Flying to Amsterdam (end of June) and returning to England from Amsterdam a week later (beginning of July) but we're looking to travel (probably by train) to Berlin for a few days. Hopefully stopping off along the way at various points.

We've had a look at the InterRail tickets and they don't seem cover Netherlands so wondered if there's any other options. Would be nice if we could get student discount too.

If any one can offer any help it'd be appreciated. Reply to this

Hello William and welcome to the Forum!

I am sure that InterRail does cover The Netherlands - sometimes you will see the word Benelux used. This stands for BElguim, NEtherlands, LUXembourg. Reply to this

Ah yeah, I can see that now!

Do you know if that's the cheapest way to travel between Netherlands and Germany? Reply to this

I am unsure, I normally travel alone and so taking the train for me is a great option. A group of you might be able to get a group discount with train travel, but I suspect bus travel will be cheaper. The roads in that part of Europe are excellent - long, straight and flat - no motion-sickness inducing hills.

The other option is to hire a large people-mover and do the journey - however one way drop off rates might be expensive. Also, eight people with luggage is going to make any people-mover a very tight squeeze. You could try to get two vehicles though. The self-drive option is only feasible if you have drivers who are 25 or 26 years old or over. Make sure you choose a reputable company - I would be wary of inexpensive local versions. Reply to this

If you happen tot be traveling on the weekends, check ouu Schone Wochenende (good weekends). You can get to Berlin for 7 euros on that if you're willing to travel on regional trains.

Interrail does cover the Netherlands. 😊 Reply to this
