Amsterdam to Brussels by train

The two capital cities, Amsterdam and Brussel are surprisingly close taking as little as two hours by train. Leave the charming canals and cobbled lanes of Amsterdam for the hustle and bustle of Brussels, the administrative center for many international organizations. 

You have the following train options for this route:

  • Thalys high-speed train: approx: 1hr 55min. Reservation mandatory

  • Regional train: 2hr 40min

Please note that the reservation fee for the Thalys is quite high. Therefore, we recommend taking regional trains between Amsterdam and Brussels.
