Amsterdam To The Hague By Train, Question.

by dj152

Hey All,

On September 19th, I will be going by train from Amsterdam to The Hague. I'll need a return ticket. Do the prices stay the same whether I buy them now, online, or when I am there on the day? Do they ever sell out? Also, roughly how long is the train journey?

Thanks in advance!

Daniel

Prices are all the same, tickets do not sell out. There are no reserved seats on these Intercity trains; only 1st and 2nd class.

So, you can buy your ticket at the day you will travel. From the counter, there's a 50 cents surcharge.

Traveltime 45 to 50 minutes; depends on which train you take (nr of stops) and if you travel to Den Haag HS or Den Haag CS.

If you are over 65, you won't have to pay the 50cents charge!

Re: Amsterdam To The Hague By Train, Question.

by nhoolb

Small correction: when you are over 60 you don't have to pay the 50 eurocents surcharge when buying at the ticket counter!

Keep in mind that there are two stations. If you want Central station you will have to change trains at Leiden, where the connecting train will be waiting for you or just arriving on the other side of the platform.
For den Haag Holland Spoor, you don't need to transfer.

In a reaction to the above reply:

There are 2 direct trains per hour from Amsterdam Centraal to Den Haag Centraal.

Apparently things have changed a bit since the last time I made the trip.

by hawkhead

Thank you, nhoolb - I couldn't remember if it was 60 or 65.....in the UK, OAP concession rates for everything start at 60 but on the continent, we have found that 65 is the more usual age..... again, thank you.

Travel Tips for Amsterdam

Dam Square

by Paul2001

Dam Square is the heart of Amsterdam. The square gets it name from the obvious fact that there was at onetime a dam here that impeeded the flow of the Amstel river. Today Dam Square is a whirlwind of tourists and business people clammering about to get to the city's attractions and shops. Such major attractions as the Royal Palace, Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum and the Nieuwe Kerk flank the square. From Dam Square there are many pedestrian malls stretching out through out all of the Central Amsterdam. Also the Red Light district and the Central train station are just a short walk away. In fact I took this picture as I was rushing off to the train station like so many other Amsterdam communters.

A little bit of background:...

by sandravdp

A little bit of background: Amsterdam has always been the capital city of the Netherlands. The city is hundreds of years old and used to be a harbour city. Ships sailed from here to India to get tea and peppers to Holland. Nowadays the harbourcity of Holland is Rotterdam. Amsterdam grew into a commercial city with 1 million habitants.

When you visit Amsterdam you can best come by train. Why? Well, I will tell you that at my transport tips. The nicest time to visit Amsterdam is probably in may. The sun is shining then, the mass tourism isn't at it's highest level so you will enjoy!

by Mariajoy

It is definitely well worth the walk to the Oosterdockkade area near Centraal Station and taking the lift up to the 11th floor of the old postal sorting office to get some stunning views over the city.

Royal Palace

by bugulma

The Royal Palace was built in 1648 as the city hall by Jacob van Kampen architect. The guidebooks say it was built from white stones but over times and weather influence it has the colour we see now. I wasn't inside and I haven't any idea whether it is possible but the guidebooks (again) say it has rich collection of paintings as well as sculpture after French influence during Napoleon wars. Exatly in 1806 when Louis Napoleon became the Dutch King he moved to live in the building. Since that the building was a palace for the royal family till 1936 when it was returned to the city municipality.

The Rijksmuseum... Jan Steen

by sim1



Jan Havicksz. Steen (1626-1679)
painting : 'Prince's Day'

'in one hand a rapier (sword) in the other hand the glass.' This rhyme, with a little effort and a magnifying glass, can be read on the piece of paper on the floor against the table leg. The inscription and the work's title 'Prince's Day' explains the occasion behind this painting: the tenth birthday of Prince William III of the house of Orange-Nassau, on 14 November 1660. This feast was not celebrated by everybody because, at the time, the Republic was divided between those for and against the prince. Jan Steen painted this tavern scene on a relatively small format in around 1665, five years after the event.

A closer look of the painting :
