Cheapest way from Amsterdam to Dusseldorf then to Athens

Could anyone please help with the cheapest way to get to Dusseldorf from Amsterdam.

Would like to spend some time with an old friend that I have not seen for 20 years and then need to fly to Athens to go on a Louis Cruise.

My friend actually lives in Solingen, so which airport would be nearest and cheapest to fly from to Athens and does the train go Solingen from Amsterdam.

This will be on the 15 Sept 2007.

Düsseldorf (DUS) or Cologne/Bonn airports are the most close to Düsseldorf.

LTU is a low cost airline that has non-stop service from Duesseldorf to Amsterdam. We booked our flight in Oct. and are paying Euro 101.- pp one-way incl. all taxes and fees. Prices change the closer you get to your departure date.

Flt. leaves D'dorf at 5:50 AM, arrives in Athens at 9:55 AM.

ICE train tickets between Duesseldorf and Amsterdam are running 19 euros per person each way. It is fast, convenient, the trains are really nice, and the price is pretty good, too. Just look at http://www.bahn.de and look for a little "English" link below the origin/destination area on the left!

Even cheaper than LTU is Aegean Airlines (if booked early enough). It should be possible to pay around 65 euros for DUS - ATH (x2 for return ticket)!
