Overview

Belgium, The Netherlands (Holland), and Luxembourg have more in common than a royal heritage. They have the Eurail Benelux Pass, giving you extensive travel on the national rail networks of Belgium, Luxembourg and the Netherlands, with your choice of any 3, 4, 5 or 8 days of rail travel within a one-month period. This pass offers saverpass discounts for 2 or more traveling together and you can also decide whether you’d prefer those travel days to be consecutive or non-consecutive.

Choose to see Belgium by rail, or relax during train travel in Holland. Trains in Luxembourg are also designed to be stress-free and adventure-ready. Put them all together and you not only have an extraordinary travel experience in the Benelux countries, but a journey that’s 180° from the hassles of airports and the deciphering of road signs.

The train also allows you to enjoy the locals as much as the scenery, and immerse yourself in the culture you came to visit. It starts with rail stations that leave you right in the city center, ready for action. Visit the enchanting (and tiny) city of Bruges, is brimming with architectural and artistic finds. Stop in Amsterdam to view the masterworks of the Dutch masters. Looking to “refuel” in Rotterdam ? Its nightlife rocks with an abundance of bars, swanky clubs, and quirky galleries. Stop in castle-rich Luxembourg, home to the Grand-Duke. And no journey through Benelux is complete without a peek at the Brussels Grand Place, one of the most beautiful squares in all of Europe. Did I say Brussels ? What a great time to mention all the travel discounts that sprout up with your pass, too— including deals on hotels and attractions.

    "We travelled extensively the three countries, Netherlands, Belgium and Luxembourg, all by trains. The timetable and the trains punctuality was really great. Lots of connectivity. The best thing we could book it from India in Indian currency. The travel by first class was comfortable, value for money. Thanks RailEurope. Minish and Urmi Shah. "

    "The Thalys service between Amsterdam and Bruxelles is amazing ! Fast, quiet and comfortable, with outstanding onboard service on a mid-afternoon trip. I don't know why anyone would drive or fly when these trains make travel so convenient. "

    "We tried the Benelux Pass with very limit knowledge of website in beginning, but it does surprised my husband and myself ! We were able to choice the Intercity/stop trains to the cities we planned to visit and some small towns passed by freely without concerns of travel cost in our five day's train trip. The more cities visited, the more value created ! Since my credit card type does not matched with local TVM, it would take much longer time to queue and to waiting at ticket office for tickets. But with the Benelux Pass, we were able to get on trains from stations conveniently. The less time spent, the more value created. The train cars are clean and on time generally, it would be better to indicate the tips or more details regarding train transferring in the train schedule booklet attached with ticket, in order to guide tourists get the better planning in advance. Thanks "
