Have a look on German Railways web because often they have times of trains not only in Germany itself.

also Belgium Railways does have a planner but not sure it matches with Bahn De or other way round !!!

Re: Train from Amsterdam to Albert in France

In what region of France is that?

The DB train planner only shows me an "Albert(Amiens)" station. I also don't find a place called Fleur in France, but lots of places called Fleury.

Anyway, the DB trip planner seems to be able to come up with quite a few solution for Amsterdam - Albert(Amiens). Basically you need to get to Lille first where you change for a local train.

You can be reassured that the site carries train times and details for almost all European trains, and is entirely reliable (it uses the same databases as the country's individual rail websites).

Finding through fares online may be more problematic, I think. But you can find fares for Amsterdam >Lille (or Amsterdam >Paris) in English on

and then fares for the French segment (in French) on:

Travel Tips for Amsterdam

Queensday!! Party Party & Freemarket :o)

by La_Holandesa

this year on 29th of April!!! Her birthday actually falls on a different day, but who cares?

Queen's Day is one of the biggest and most popular national holidays in The Netherlands. In Amsterdam in particular it's an excuse for a huge extended party as millions take to the streets to celebrate the birthday of Queen Beatrix!

Party! Party!
Partying is what its all about on Queen's day. For twenty four hours the city of Amsterdam turns into one huge club, the bars open their doors from ten in the morning and people take to the streets. Tthe parties are fast and furious and the smiles never ending. As the sun goes down, the pace picks up and the dancing continues until the small hours.

Free Market !!
As well as having a country-wide party to celebrate the Queen's Birthday, the people of the Netherlands also set up a free market for the day where anything can be bought or sold. Attics are emptied and basements are searched and whatever is found is sold on the street. If you want it, they've probably got it, and cheap too! Koninginnedag (Queen's Day) !

This is the biggest party day of the year as the whole country wears orange, goes nuts and gets drunk ;o)

Go and visit the Ann Frank...

by canuckcj

Go and visit the Ann Frank house and museum. Also take a tour on the canal as well visit the Red Light District at night time. We stayed at a campground while in Amsterdam. It was just fun to relax with friends and play cards.

Comfortable boat travel :)

by Jenniflower

This part of Amsterdam is endearing. We loved the river life of the canals, seeing people go about their business - one boat had a lady sitting on an actual SOFA in their boat whilst hubby was rowing away... haha... It looked out of place, but at least she was comfortable :)

Old houses

by betako3

Three things that make Amsterdam's old houses special:
Firstly, those decorative tops of the houses (I'm sure there is some formal name for it, can someone give me a hint?), each house having its own pattern.
Secondly, some houses are so incredibly narrow that it's hard to imagine that you can actually live in it (See that picture I took in Begijnhof!)
Finally, most buildings have a facade which is actually leaning forward and a big hook attached at the top. Why? Because all the furniture you want to move in- or out of the house has to be lifted through the windows, the staircases are far too narrow and too steep to allow any manoeuvres (even with a suitcase!). The hook at the top is for the rope on which the furniture is lifted and the leaning front helps you move things up. (Begijnhof once again provided a perfect example. Plus it's about the only sunny picture I have from Amsterdam :)

by Lalique
