Travel inspiration in Zurich and Amsterdam
Zürich, the largest city of Switzerland
Zürich is a major financial centre and one of the most preferred Swiss destinations. In 2012, it was voted as the best city to live in Europe. It is an elegant metropolis on the lake bearing its name, with views over the snow-covered Alps, home to over 50 museums, 100 galleries, top hotels, shops and restaurants. Obviously it has to be Zürich! With its excellent public transport connections, this prime Swiss destination is ideal for excursions to the rest of the country. 5 days there, and you will get to know all about Zürich and neighbouring towns.
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 Zurich - Amsterdam
"Journey was comfortable"Md. Nazmul Hossain c.
Travel from Zurich to Paris was very comfortable. Food in the train was also very good. Altogether it was a nice experience.
"Amsterdam to Paris train"Noor Soffalina s. 16/04/2014
The train arrived on time. Staffs at the train station checked if everybody have the right tickets, and usher them to the correct area on the platform based on your carriage number. So you dont have to run all the way back if your seat is at the last carriage. However, they should have advise us earlier what to so with big luggage. We only know afterwards that we should take another door which have the bag storage racks. We got our seat and the train starts departing Amsterdam CS. After a while, announcement was made that the cafe was open. Since we didnt have breakfast, we went there to buy some food. We had to wait quite a while, the staff wasnt even ready. upon returning to our seats, we were surprise to find people in our seats. After a while, we figured out that we had the correct seat number but wrong carriage number. That was super confusing! There is no where in the train to know which carriage number it is. And every carriage has the same seat number?? It would be beneficial to have those clearly written. As the train make stops along the way to take passengers, so once you are in your seat, do not think it's definitely yours, you might get it wrong like us.

"From Brussels to Amsterdam"Fabio c. 05/12/2013
It was a great journey. No problems at all…. the reservation was correct and I did nothing to board my train. Service was great and it was a very pleasant journey! Thanks for being an option for me to buy this ticket!
"Amsterdam to Paris"Kunal s. 04/12/2013
Trip was nice with train leaving and arriving on time. However, they could do better by providing WiFi access in Second class. Book early and you may get First Class at the price of Second Class.
"Paris Gare Lyon - Zuerich Hb "Xiaoqi y. 02/12/2013
Uses major train stations with good connections in both cities. Punctual. Clean coaches and comfy seats. Book early for cheap tickets!
"Amsterdam to Paris"Marvin s. 25/11/2013
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.
"Excellent scenery"Kazunori k. 20/11/2013
It was a nice journy from Milan to Zurich and train staff was very familiar. More cleanliness is needed, for example full trash boxes.
"71 year old couple"Geoffrey d. 11/11/2013
The 9.34am from Zurich on a Friday was crowded but comfortable. Travelling at up to 199MPH, and punctual, it enabled us to travel from Zurich to Manchester in one day. Pretty good. We had come from Budapest to Vienna and Vienna to Zurich via the Arlberg pass earlier in the week with a full day in both Vienna and Zurich. Good hotels near the main stations. A great journey home by rail! Only East Coast let us down!
"Zurich to Paris by train"Geoffrey d. 10/11/2013
The whole experience of booking and then travelling with TGV Lyria has been fantastic. I will definitely use it again. Thank you.
"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!
"Convenient way to travel"Nokukhanya m. 27/10/2013
I travelled alone (female) from Geneva to Zurich and felt safe all the way. The train was clean and comfortable. I enjoyed the scenery on the three hour long trip and once I got to Zurich main station I had to change trains to get to my hotel. The information desk at Zurich station were happy to direct me to the correct platform.
