Amsterdam to Berlin with Intercity and Regional Trains

While the ICE is the most direct route, it’s also possible to reach Berlin by taking a series of local trains, typically involving one or two changes. However, this would take significantly longer than the direct ICE service.

Tickets can be purchased online through the Deutsche Bahn website or other train ticket booking platforms. Prices vary depending on how far in advance you book and the time of day and week of travel. As with most train services, booking as far in advance as possible generally secures the best prices.

Ensure you have your ticket before boarding the train.
