Taking a Bus.

Try Eurolines.

Roundtrip on a bus is 60 euros. Most transfer in Utrecht.

If you take a train the price on eurolines was 140 euros roundtrip.

Sincerely,

The cheapest fare by train is €84, if you avoid the ICE. One train per hour.

Eurolines bus is €60 with one or two departures per day. You'll have to decide for yourself if the €24 is worth it.

Because with ICE the cheapest fare is above 84 euro, simply. The maths are done with the Hague-Venlo, Venlo-Dusseldorf and DUS-Cologne route which takes a bit more time than Hague-Utrecht and then Utrecht-Cologne by ICE. But as often in travel, more time means lower price...

All the best,

Hi there,

www.nshispeed.nl gives these prices. Tick 'no high speed trains' or simply only look at the lines with 2 or more transfers, these are the route given above.

All the best,
