Travel inspiration in Amsterdam and Zurich
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.
Zürich, the largest city of Switzerland
Zürich is a major financial centre and one of the most preferred Swiss destinations. In 2012, it was voted as the best city to live in Europe. It is an elegant metropolis on the lake bearing its name, with views over the snow-covered Alps, home to over 50 museums, 100 galleries, top hotels, shops and restaurants. Obviously it has to be Zürich! With its excellent public transport connections, this prime Swiss destination is ideal for excursions to the rest of the country. 5 days there, and you will get to know all about Zürich and neighbouring towns.
Reviews & ratings Amsterdam - Zurich
"Amsterdam to Paris"Marvin s.
Good trip, comfortable. Ticket was a bit expensive though.
"Comfortable train ride"Nurhuda Binte j. 25/11/2013
It was the first time taking Thalys from Amsterdam to Paris and it was a nice experience. It was comfortable. Since we booked our tickets in advanced, it was value for money and we were allocated to seats that we wanted.
"Excellent scenery"Kazunori k. 20/11/2013
It was a nice journy from Milan to Zurich and train staff was very familiar. More cleanliness is needed, for example full trash boxes.
"71 year old couple"Geoffrey d. 11/11/2013
The 9.34am from Zurich on a Friday was crowded but comfortable. Travelling at up to 199MPH, and punctual, it enabled us to travel from Zurich to Manchester in one day. Pretty good. We had come from Budapest to Vienna and Vienna to Zurich via the Arlberg pass earlier in the week with a full day in both Vienna and Zurich. Good hotels near the main stations. A great journey home by rail! Only East Coast let us down!
"Zurich to Paris by train"Geoffrey d. 10/11/2013
The whole experience of booking and then travelling with TGV Lyria has been fantastic. I will definitely use it again. Thank you.
"Great Trip"Jason b. 28/10/2013
Took the train from Paris to Amsterdam for the second leg of our trip. The train is smooth and fast. We had a nice surprise of food included in the premiere class. It wasn't expected which was nice, but wished it were hot food (cold chicken didn't seem that appealing - maybe stick to sandwiches). But nonetheless Thalys always delivers us to our destination on time and budget!
"Convenient way to travel"Nokukhanya m. 27/10/2013
I travelled alone (female) from Geneva to Zurich and felt safe all the way. The train was clean and comfortable. I enjoyed the scenery on the three hour long trip and once I got to Zurich main station I had to change trains to get to my hotel. The information desk at Zurich station were happy to direct me to the correct platform.
"Train journey"Md Tajuddin m. 26/10/2013
The train journey from Paris to Amsterdam was very good and we enjoyed the views of the places along the journey. The train was packed with passengers but there is enough rooms to put your extra luggage, in case you need it. .

"Had a good ride"Arif Husain k. 21/10/2013
We enjoyed our ride from Paris to Zurich. The train was very punctual and comfortable.
"amazing"Arif Husain k. 20/10/2013
I travelled with my husband from Zurich to Paris on TGV. Our experience was excellent as it was perfectly timed and we need not ask anyone for the Platform or how to reach upto the Train, it was very clearly displayed on the neon sign board and believe me it took us just three minutes to get into the train after getting down from the Taxi at Zurich station. Inside the train it was very comfortable, Both telephone and I pad electric chargers were there. Our both Indian Mobile as well as Swiss mobile worked well throughout the journey. We could get Vegetarian food at the Pantry- freshly cooked and of course mildly spicy.
"excellent train conncetion"Arif Husain k. 20/10/2013
Amsterdam CS is centrally located in the heart of Amsterdam, access to this station from any hotels in Amsterdam in convenient using the tram. Train schedule is very punctual and it is value for money if you were to book a first class cabin when the offer is not too far off from the price of normal cabin. Lunch is served for the first class cabin with wine and all the extra. It is a comfortable ride all the way to Brussel Midi station.
"Paris to Amsterdam"Jacqueline m. 18/10/2013
Punctual and efficient service. The train was comfortable, clean and fast. Highly recommended and much preferred to flying.
"Pleasant journey by Thalys"Yen Shan l. 17/10/2013
Comfortable and convenience by Thalys Train to Paris from Amsterdam .
"First time on Thalys"Sophia h. 17/10/2013
I recently traveled from Amsterdam to Paris on Thalys (visiting from the US). I booked the Semi-Flex class 1 fair, which was the same price as the as the class 2 fair. I really was not sure what the difference was, but class 1 sounded pretty good. Well, I was glad I did. We had large seats, charging stations for our phone, free wifi, and breakfast. It was definitely worth the value and the ride was very pleasant (minus this woman across from me who complained about every little thing.) Next time I'm in the area, I will book Thalys again!
