thanks already!

My Answer:


Luckily Amsterdam has a few high speed rail lines leading from it so you have many options of where you could get to within a couple of hours.

If you were hoping for a city in another country to spend your time in, here are a few options to consider:

  • Paris, 3.5 hour train ride. This is probably the furthest you would want to go I would guess. Maybe even a little too far away from Amsterdam, but it is Paris so it may be worth it to you.
  • Brussels, 2 hour train ride.
  • Cologne, 2.75 hour train ride.

There are also some charming smaller cities within the Netherlands to see too. If you were hoping for a more relaxing weekend one of these might be a good option for you:

Happy travels,
