Hi all
Any body has taken the train from Warsaw to Amsterdam? If so "Please let me know the procedure and exprience you have had!" Thanks!

From what I've been told, avoid the seats and couchettes - make sure to have a proper sleeping berth on the train. It's also apparently always delayed in Germany, so don't plan anything important for the day of arrival in Amsterdam.

I think if you look at the price, it would be better and safer to use of the low-cost carriers.

And quicker ...

Train takes 15 hours 50 minutes (treinreiziger.nl/internationaal/nachttreinen/dienstregelin g_nachttreinen/dienstregeling_nachttrein_amsterdam_-_warschau_-_moskou ). If I go by car, it takes me 10 hours 45 minutes.

The cheap carrier I use (Wizzair) takes you in 1 hours 55 minutes from Warsaw to Eindhoven (between €33 and €45 if you book about 6 weeks in advance). Then 20 minutes in the bus to Eindhoven Central Station (€3) and then 1 hour 20 minutes in the train to Amsterdam Central Station (direct connection - €17,20). So, incl. being present at the airport one hour in advance, it's a total traveling time of 4 hours and 15 minutes.

Total saving in time of 11 hours 25 minutes for a single trip. Total cost between €53,20 and €65,20 for a single fare. I don't know exactly how much a train ticket between Warsaw and Amsterdam costs, but I would think at least 4 times that amount.

Nope, but I *did* take the train from Amsterdam to Warszawa once. (Does that count?)

Very stiff legs. Didn't sleep too much. (I'd recommend an airticket!)

I'm sorry, make it 4 hours 35 minutes.

I can imagine after 15,5 hours ... :(
