How to get from AMS Schiphol to central Paris and backwards

Jump to last reply

What is my best option? - I am open to both train and plane.

On SNCF website, I can find trains (3.5 hr) between Paris Gare du Nord and Amsterdam Centraal. Can't seem to find trains to or from Schiphol.

When I was at AMS last month, I heard at least 1 international train announced (or so I thought). Can I travel from AMS direct to France?

It's too early, obviously, to find Prems or other discount fares between Amsterdam and Paris but if I go 1 month out from today, I find fares as low as € 35 and many as low as € 49 one way.

Lowest airfare is €145 return and then there's the hassle of a commute to and (worse) from COG. So train may be the best option, even if it means taking a train to the central Amsterdam station.

Can anyone with direct experience advise?
