Amsterdam to Prague Train Tickets

Amsterdam to Prague Train Tickets

Dutch Railways (NS) joins forces with Deutsche Bahn (DB) to get you from Amsterdam to Prague by train, comfortably and efficiently. Over the course of the nearly 900km-long journey, you’ll travel three countries by way of three high-speed commuter trains: the InterCity, InterCity-Express and EuroCity. Each offers Standard and First Class seating as well as a variety of quality onboard services and amenities to help you make the most of your trip to the Czech Republic capital.

There is only one daily route from Amsterdam to Prague. A Dutch Railways train begins the journey in the evening from Amsterdam Zuid, making 5-7 station changes (with operator services switching over to Deutsche Bahn along the way in Germany) before arriving at Prague Hlavni Nadrazi the following afternoon.

Prague is often called the ‘City of a Hundred Spires’ due to its countless towering cathedrals, castles and of course, “spire-inspired” architecture. Considered one of Europe’s top cultural centers, Prague excels in the areas of theatre, music and film, while housing several world-renowned museums. History buffs will surely be drawn to central Prague’s Old Town Square, a designated World Heritage Site. For casual sightseers, a scenic bike tour, river cruise, or trip to the luxurious Palladium shopping mall may just be the order of the day!

Your ticket to travel from Amsterdam to Prague by train can be purchased conveniently here. Soon after your order is received, we’ll ship you the actual ticket which you can simply present at the station before boarding.
