Travel inspiration in Basel and Amsterdam
Basel, the cultural capital of Switzerland
You have 4 days only? You want to visit more than one country? Basel is the name that should be on your list of towns to set camp. Perfect to visit France and Germany, from this city which is known as the Swiss capital of art and culture. There are about 40 museums, classical patrician houses and medieval churches side by side with modern buildings designed by major international architects such as Herzog & de Meuron or Renzo Piano. Top off your city tour at the Kunstmuseum Basel, known for its oldest public art collection of the world. Basel is the third most populous city of Siwtzerland.
Amsterdam, capital city of the Netherlands
Amsterdam, the capital city of the Netherlands, is located in the province of North Holland. The city got its name from a dam in the river Amstel and was a small fishing village at its creation. Nowadays Amsterdam is a busy seaport and one of the top European financial centres as well as a major cultural hub. The canals, world-famous museums and historical sights makes Amsterdam one of the most romantic and beautiful cities in Europe. It has all the advantages of a big city: culture, nightlife, restaurants with international cuisine, good transport system. However, the city has also a quiet and relaxed atmosphere largely thanks to its extensive canals, low road traffic, small green parks and flower fields. In Amsterdam, places of interest are never far away, get a bike or hop on a tram for an authentic local experience. Amsterdam can be reached easily by train from other European capitals - Paris, London or Brussels.
Reviews & ratings Basel - Amsterdam
"Amsterdam to Paris"Marvin s.
Good trip, comfortable. Ticket was a bit expensive though.
"Comfortable train ride"Nurhuda Binte j. 25/11/2013
It was the first time taking Thalys from Amsterdam to Paris and it was a nice experience. It was comfortable. Since we booked our tickets in advanced, it was value for money and we were allocated to seats that we wanted.
"Great Trip"Jason b. 28/10/2013
Took the train from Paris to Amsterdam for the second leg of our trip. The train is smooth and fast. We had a nice surprise of food included in the premiere class. It wasn't expected which was nice, but wished it were hot food (cold chicken didn't seem that appealing - maybe stick to sandwiches). But nonetheless Thalys always delivers us to our destination on time and budget!
"Train journey"Md Tajuddin m. 26/10/2013
The train journey from Paris to Amsterdam was very good and we enjoyed the views of the places along the journey. The train was packed with passengers but there is enough rooms to put your extra luggage, in case you need it. .
"Eurail Travel in Switzerland"Robyn k. 20/10/2013
Train travel in Switzerland was fantastic, always on time and always clean. Felt very safe. We did travel from Basel to Paris by train and the toilets were very bad and the main Railway Station in Paris was really dirty but that may have just been a bad day. All the stations in Switzerland were very clan. Staff at Stations and on Trains exceptionally helpful and also all announcements were made in a number if languages so that helped since English was one of them. Can highly recommend travelling by Rail if you are holidaying in Switzerland.
"excellent train conncetion"Robyn k. 20/10/2013
Amsterdam CS is centrally located in the heart of Amsterdam, access to this station from any hotels in Amsterdam in convenient using the tram. Train schedule is very punctual and it is value for money if you were to book a first class cabin when the offer is not too far off from the price of normal cabin. Lunch is served for the first class cabin with wine and all the extra. It is a comfortable ride all the way to Brussel Midi station.
"Paris to Amsterdam"Jacqueline m. 18/10/2013

"Pleasant journey by Thalys"Yen Shan l. 17/10/2013
Comfortable and convenience by Thalys Train to Paris from Amsterdam .
"First time on Thalys"Sophia h. 17/10/2013
I recently traveled from Amsterdam to Paris on Thalys (visiting from the US). I booked the Semi-Flex class 1 fair, which was the same price as the as the class 2 fair. I really was not sure what the difference was, but class 1 sounded pretty good. Well, I was glad I did. We had large seats, charging stations for our phone, free wifi, and breakfast. It was definitely worth the value and the ride was very pleasant (minus this woman across from me who complained about every little thing.) Next time I'm in the area, I will book Thalys again!
"Fast train to Firenze"Jose Randy c. 17/10/2013

"Amsterdam"Ramirez v. 15/10/2013
The trip was very good.
"Euro rail experience"Ramirez v. 15/10/2013
We were a group of four travelling from Venice to Basel in Switzerland. The train ride was exceptional. I would do this again not only for the beautiful landscapes but the service on these trains. You can see the countries by travelling on the train alone. Those beautiful countrysides in Switzerland was indeed a highlight for me. Definitely five star rating.
"Good, convenient"Ramirez v. 14/10/2013
The train brought me directly to train station at Basel without problem. The train is quite comfortable.
