Train Stuttgart → Amsterdam
Duration 5h01 - From $35
Rev up your traveler engines Stuttgart, the capital of Baden-Wurttemberg (although many still call the area Swabia, its pre-World War II name), is known the world over as the "cradle of the automobile." It was in Stuttgart in 1871 that Gottlieb Daimler invented the first car. This creation is so ingrained in the city's heritage that the Stuttgart coat of arms is the same that graces the hood of every Porsche. Stuttgart was not always the industrial powerhouse it is today. Way back in the 13th century wine was the city's first source of income. Wine remained Stuttgart's leading source of revenue well into the 19th century. Even today, with more than 800 acres of vineyards, this industry continues to help the local economy. Such so, that the annual wine festival “Weindorf” celebrates this fruit of the vine.

More than canals,culture and cannabis Amsterdam, also known as the Venice of Northern Europe, is a world-class capital known for its rich culture, openness and tolerance. Amsterdam Centraal Station (CS) is at the heart of the city and can easily be reached from Schiphol airport within 15 minutes. Miss the train ? Not to worry – they run every ten minutes. The Centraal Station’s impressive neo-renaissance building is located at the IJ waterfront. Unless you plan to travel by one of the ferries from the north side of the station, you’ll need to exit at the center side, where all buses, trams, metros, taxis, departure quays for tourist boats and the main Amsterdam tourist office are located. The station’s location is unique, situated on three man-made islands, themselves resting on over 8,000 wooden piles that have been driven deep into the sandy soil. Several canals that have recently been added to the UNESCO heritage list surround the train station. Learn more about Amsterdam

"It became a fast learning curve how to handle trains that do not go to plan. ICE Train did not arrive at Amsterdam - we were left not knowing that this had happened - even though we had been waiting in the ICE first class lounge. The platform speaker system in Amsterdam could not be heard to allow you to understand the information being given. Luggage storage on the ICE Trains is limited which does not seem to accommodate long distance travel as we were undertaking. While we did eventually catch the train at another station we received little assistance from ICE towards knowing what was going on. Once on board all went well. "
