i am finishing working at 7pm on November 3rd and need to know if there is a train to Amsterdam around 8pm from Essen. Any help?
Otherwise, can you suggest me a cheap train to Amsterdam the next day? Thank you
RE: Essen-Amsterdam train
There are some trains, all arriving past midnight.
RE: Essen-Amsterdam train
To: Amsterdam Centraal
Check for Duisburg to Amsterdam and see if you can get one of the Europe-Special-Tickets for the ICE trains which are EUR 19,00. Unlike normal tickets this tickets are however only valid for the booked connection. No change. No refund.
Than travel by RE train from Essen to Duisburg (12 min, EUR 3,70). This is a connection inside the local public transport network VRR of the Ruhr area. Thus the VRR tariff applies, not the DB tariff if you use local public transport like the RE trains. While DB tickets are point-to-point tickets, VRR tickets are zone-to-zone tickets. The ticket covers the journey from anywhere in Essen (e.g. by bus or tram) to the Hauptbahnhof and from there by RE train to Duisburg.

Travel Tips for Essen
Essen has also a soccer team....
Essen has also a soccer team. Rot-Weiß Essen, but this team isn't in the major league. It's just in the regional league. But it's a part of Essen and the fans stand behind their players. But bewarned there are also many hooligans and this means trouble.

OK, this isn't a Club I visit, but it's very popular. The people come from whole Germany to Party. It is in a old warehouse for steal from Krupp.
The music is from the Charts and a bit Dance and House.
There are GoGo-dancers and good lighteffects. It's a very expensive Club.
The guys must be rich but not not necessarily goodlooking.
But the girls and women must be or they are also rich and popular TV or Moviestars. As am man you should wear good shoes (no sneakers) and a suit.
As a won´men you should wear somethig sexy, like a miniskirt or something that shows many naked skin.
In the center of Essen – starting opposite the railway station – you will find a long pedestrianised shopping street which lots of shops, cafés, restaurants etc. In a side street you may spot the attractive Grillo Theater. Later you will pass the Marktkirche with the Krupp statue as well as the cathedral. To the end of the shopping street there are cheaper shops and various snack take-aways. At the end of the street you will find the St. Gertrud church.
Ride the giant wheel that's...
Ride the giant wheel that's placed on the Burgplatz around Christmas time. It costs like 3.50 Euro per person (less if you go as a gang) and takes you into the angels' spheres... maybe not quite that high, but it's a pretty big one... and, well, it's not like you'd be looking down at Schloss Neuschwanstein and be all in awe and wow's, but it's still a nice thing to see a city as big as Essen from above.
If you know your surroundings, you might be able to make out other cities' centres or landmarks like the Gasometer of Oberhausen.
