brussels to amsterdam

Does anyone know the best way to get from Brussels to Amsterdam? I'm looking for the fastest option -- not necessarily the cheapest.

Hi there.

Fastest will be Thalys Train, Brussels Midi - Amsterdam CS. It will take 2hrs 41 mins, one way EUR 42.50, details at http://www.thalys.com

Regular Train is EUR 10,00 cheaper. Takes 15 mins more. http://www.nmbs.be

Departure also from Brussels Central or Brussels North railwaystation.

Both above are direct trains, no transfers.....

From Brussels Zaventem airport it can be done in 3hrs 20mins, one transfer in Brussels North Station. http://www.nmbs.be

A good general (and understandable) website is http://www.bahn.de

It will give most trainsschedules in Europe,

sometimes with, sometimes without fares....

Definately the train - don't even think about flying. For all the difference it takes - the high speed line has not yet been built - I'd go on the ordinary (hourly) service.

Times and fares are on the Dutch Railways site - www.ns.nl - there is an English link at the top.
