Train or fly to Amsterdam

We will be traveling from Zurich, Switzerland to Amsterdam. How long does it take by train? I know it's about a 1 1/2 hour flight, but I'm wondering about the train ride. Thanks so much!

Hi there,

Around 8 hours. Direct night train or 1 good daytime connection with an ICE train doing Basel-Amsterdam and leaving around 15.30 (Amsterdam 22h). www.sbb.ch/en should spell out all options.

All the best,

<Erik> & [Sandya]

For any future train questions *worldwide*: bookmark the fantastic website www.seat61.com ! For example it also shows you pictures of what 1st class, 2nd class, sleeper cars look like, sometimes even videos. And tells you how & when best to book tickets.
