Amsterdam to Solingen

Jump to last reply

Hi All,
We're looking for the best way to travel from Amsterdam to Solingen. We dont have a car, so need to rely on train or bus transport.

Any help will be appreciated!

    Check bahn.com for connections and tickets.

    The best routing will take you every 2 hours from Amsterdam Centraal by highspeed ICE train to Düsseldorf Hbf (main station).
    Change there to a suburban S1 train for the last few kms to Solingen Hbf (main station).

    You can reserve seat as long as 3 months in advance and you may or may not see saver fares for the date you wish to travel.
    Saver fares are restricted to the highspeed train you book them for. So those are good when you already can and want to commit yourself to a specific departure time from Amsterdam.
    But as the regular, unrestricted ticket costs only €59, you could go for those and have full flexibility.

    Seat reservations are possible only for the long-distance highspeed train (not mandatory or necessary, but recommended on Fridays and Sundays).
    For the short 2nd leg with the suburban train from Düsseldorf to Solingen you can hop on any S1 train heading for Solingen Hbf. Even with a saver ticket you are not restricted to take exactly the S1 train mentioned in your itinerary, but you can take any - in case your highspeed train from Amsterdam should be late.
