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.

Reviews & ratings Brussels - Amsterdam
"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.
"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.
"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!
"Amsterdam"Ramirez v. 15/10/2013
The trip was very good.
"PARIS NORD-AMSTERDAM"Selwyn j. 11/10/2013
OUR EXPERIENCE ON THIS JOURNEY WAS A PLEAENT AND ENJOYABLE ONE,AND I WOULD RECOMEND THALYS TO OTHER WOULD BE TRAIN TRAVEL PERSONS.THE SERVICE AND ATTENTION BY TRAIN PERSONNEL WAS EXCELLENT.
"Amsterdam to Paris trip"Senthilkumar r. 08/10/2013
The train and the facilities were very good. The travel was worth for the money paid. However one item needs to be addresssed by the administration. There were many reserved ticket holders without seat numbers. As a tourist and speaking foreign language they were stranded with their luggages with no guidance on where to go. This can be avoided in future.
"Convenience!"Sin Han l. 08/10/2013
It's a good experience to take the night train from munich to amsterdam. I picked the first class cabin. A small decent cabin was offered with a basin. It was quiet that I could have nice sleep. Simple washing was okay with the basin. The staff was nice. The breakfast was a bit simple.
