Travelling by train

One of the best ways of getting to know the Netherlands is travelling by train where you can just sit back and relax! Forget the stress of traffic jams and trying to find a parking space in a city you don't know.

One word of advice however before you start your journey: as the morning rush hour is a particularly busy time, you might prefer to leave after 9.00 am, also the NS (Dutch railway company) offers a discount if you travel after 9.00 am.

There are three types of trains in Holland: the Intercity, which offers fast city-to-city connections, the Sneltrein which skips some smaller stations , and the Stoptrein which makes more frequent stops at the smaller stations. Most stations are centrally located in the city.
You can find departure and arrival times as well as price information on the ns site. Furthermore the site also features information on international trains, tickets and stations.
