Prague to Amsterdam Train Tickets



One Way


Czech Railways (CD), Deutsche Bahn (DB) and Dutch Railways (NS) join forces to get you from Prague to Amsterdam by train, comfortably and efficiently. Over the course of the nearly 900km-long journey, you’ll travel three countries by way of three commuter trains: regional, InterCity and InterCity-Express. All offer 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 Holland’s capital city.

There are one to three daily routes from Prague to Amsterdam. With each route, the first train departs from Prague Hlavni Nadrazi in the afternoon, making 3-6 station changes before arriving at either Amsterdam Zuid or Centraal (Cs) the following morning.

Amsterdam is often referred to as “Venice of the North” due to its charming canals, captivating mix of medieval and modern architecture, and countless scenic bridges. Along with its capital status, Amsterdam boasts as the Netherlands’ biggest city and leader of finance, culture and creativity. Key attractions you won’t want to miss during your visit include the historic Anne Frank House, Van Gogh Museum, NEMO Science Center and Dam town square.
