Hi there,
I was wondering if anyone could help me out. I'm planning an inter rail trip and was wondering whether there is a night train linking Amsterdam and Hamburg?
Many thanks,

Hi.

There is one direct night train, but it arrives very early in Hamburg - it is the one with final destination Copenhagen:

[b]Amsterdam Centraal[/b] dep: 1901 | CNL night train: [u]https://rail.cc/en/train/amsterdam-to-copenhagen[/u]
[b]Hamburg Hbf[/b] arr: 0356

By day train it is a trip of about 6 hours. There are connections with only one change in Duisburg Hbf. The ICE and IC trains you will use are all free of supplements.
Have a look at the schedule planer: [u]https://rail.cc/en/search-interrail-route[/u]

Peter :)

it is better to use the 2-hourly EC trains to BERLIN and change at OSNABRUCK.

I'm travelling to Hamburg on the 15th June this year
are the only links without supplements now with two changes, not one?

Hi.
The fastest connection is 5 hours and some minutes with two changes (free of extra fees for Interrailers - via Osnabrück):
[u]https://rail.cc/en/interrail/amsterdam-to-hamburg[/u]

If you only want to change once, the journey time will be 6:40h with change in Duisburg.

Hi.
No changes. :)
You can use the schedules given here on railcc.
And it is always enough time to change the trains - the stations aren't as big. And the trains less crowded than on the connection with only one change.

it is only due to ROUTE and the seeming inability of many of you to realise that AMS-this big city here, has 10 and not just 1 station.
The Berlin trains start at Schiphol airport and stops in AMS at ZUID WTC and then at DUIVENDRecht-both are on the metro. ZUID also has trams. As I assume you will not stay on the station roof of central, it hardly makes diff if you take a tram the 1 or the other way to reach station.
Also if starting from Central, it is just too daft easy -simply take local InterCity to Hilversum (trains goes to Amersfoort), get off-listen to announcement,and wait 3 mins for next train, same track=-the one to berlin, together with a few dozen others, all screaming and anxious. Or maybe you can make new IR friends with your knowledge now.
In Osnabrück the germans have some nice style bahnhof: in 2 levels, up and down. Same-same we have here in NL at Duivendrecht.
