Your travel by train from Brussels to Amsterdam
Travelling at high speed between France, the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany are the red Thalys trains. The distinctive modern trains are fast and comfortable offering internet access, refreshments and spacious cabins to relax and enjoy the journey. There are two levels of service on-board for passengers to choose from and both offer a superb way to travel the two hours between Brussels and Amsterdam.
Brussels Midi/Zuid station is just five minutes from the centre of this important European city. There are easy connections to other Thalys routes and international trains, the airport and public transport. Amsterdam Centraal is on the banks of the river Amstel and faces the city centre with the central square just a ten minute walk away. There are ferries, trams, buses, bikes and taxis all within a few steps of the station exit. Trains leave regularly for Schiphol Airport too.
Between Brussels and Amsterdam a point to point ticket is a good option but for travellers who want to explore further afield throughout The Netherlands and beyond, there are other rail passes available including a Eurail Select pass for travel in five bordering countries or regional passes like the Eurail Benelux-France pass.

Amsterdam is a city with many faces and visitors will enjoy exploring the pretty canals by boat or bike, stopping for coffee in friendly cafes or browsing boutique shops.

"Amsterdam to Paris train"Noor Soffalina s. 16/04/2014
The train arrived on time. Staffs at the train station checked if everybody have the right tickets, and usher them to the correct area on the platform based on your carriage number. So you dont have to run all the way back if your seat is at the last carriage. However, they should have advise us earlier what to so with big luggage. We only know afterwards that we should take another door which have the bag storage racks. We got our seat and the train starts departing Amsterdam CS. After a while, announcement was made that the cafe was open. Since we didnt have breakfast, we went there to buy some food. We had to wait quite a while, the staff wasnt even ready. upon returning to our seats, we were surprise to find people in our seats. After a while, we figured out that we had the correct seat number but wrong carriage number. That was super confusing! There is no where in the train to know which carriage number it is. And every carriage has the same seat number?? It would be beneficial to have those clearly written. As the train make stops along the way to take passengers, so once you are in your seat, do not think it's definitely yours, you might get it wrong like us.

"From Brussels to Amsterdam"Fabio c. 05/12/2013
It was a great journey. No problems at all…. the reservation was correct and I did nothing to board my train. Service was great and it was a very pleasant journey! Thanks for being an option for me to buy this ticket!
"Amsterdam to Paris"Kunal s. 04/12/2013
Trip was nice with train leaving and arriving on time. However, they could do better by providing WiFi access in Second class. Book early and you may get First Class at the price of Second Class.
"Bruxelle to Brugge"Man Shan l. 02/12/2013
It is an open ticket and no seats assigned. So anybody with the ticket can go on board. My train was too many people and my family had to sit on the stairs when tired.
"Trip from Paris to Brusells "Moazzam r. 02/12/2013
The trip on the Thalys Euro train from Paris to Brussels was an amazing experience, with the high speed train leaving the departing station on time and arriving slightly ahead of time as well - very punctual indeed compared to the rail service in other parts of the world. Keep up the good work. As first class passenger I was expecting better meal service with greater variety on the train. The food quality served during the trip definitely has room for improvement. Overall the seat were very comfortable, the ticketing staff
"Amsterdam to Paris"Marvin s. 25/11/2013
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.
"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!
"Easy Ride"Michael p. 28/10/2013
While not as fast as the TVG segment from Brussles to Aix , the ride to Cannes was very comfortable and convenmient with great scenery. The only reason not a five star rating is that someone should let you know about the upper deck seats which would make for an even better view and enjoyment
"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. .
"efficient comfortabla ride"Chen Thong t. 21/10/2013
You can't have a better way to travel from Brussels to Paris. You can have many schedules to sit your timing. Depart from Brussels Midi station and end at Paris Nord station is a very efficient and easy way to move between these two cities. In Paris Nord station, it is easy to connect to any hotels in Paris with the metro lines. Paris has a very connected network in their metro lines.
"excellent train conncetion"Chen Thong t. 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.
"Excellent trip"Loloa i. 19/10/2013
I bought a first class ticket for my trip from Brussels to Cologne. The price was great and it was an excellent value. They offered food and drink, the seats were plush and comfortable and the train ride was smooth and relaxing.
