Interrail - Frankfurt - Paris - Amsterdam - Berlin

Hi.

Try to avoid the THALYS trains if you want to save money.
If possible, make a reservation for the direct trains Frankfurt-Paris.
On this direct connection it is EUR 10. Thalys is much more expensive.

Paris - Amsterdam:

Amsterdam-Berlin:

Berlin-Budapest:

I must go from Paris to AMsterdam with Thalys because that is saturday in morning and my plan is get nigt train to Berlin

Problem in Amsterdam is very expensive hotel beds for 1 night so i think that better way is night train but there is no more seats avalible for reservation.
Only way is to upgrade my interrail 5 days in 10 days pass from 2nd class to 1st class.

Berlin - Budapest is not problem - 2 couchetts in 35 eruos for 2 of us.

Budapest - Osijek (Croatia) - is regular train - about 20euros

Mmmh...
Amsterdam only for a half day isn't worth. I recommend an overnight stay. Even if it is expensive, it is worth.
Otherwise think about the night train from Paris directly to Berlin:
https://en.rail.cc/paris-metz-h ... y/10397/18

And add instead of Amsterdam for example Prague which is inexpensive.

the supplements for Thalys are similarities to their special offer prices like Smoove

so if you need you can save one day of IR pass buying a normal-in-special-price ticket
here you have more info: http://www.thalys.com/fr/en/new-fares/Amsterdam/Paris

Amsterdam:
In the south eastern part of the main hall; always crowded but usually you'll find a free locker with a little patience. Price was ~5€ depending on the locker size (I'll try to get my receipt from last summer...)

Berlin:
Lockers in the car park, deck C; 3-6€ depending on size and day of the week
Luggage storage on 1st floor east; 5€ per day

Hi,

I updated the info for international TGV and ICE services Germany - France:

:arrow: https://en.rail.cc/train-type-c ... b-alleo/64
:arrow: https://en.rail.cc/train-type-c ... -alleo/172

So it does not matter if you travel with TGV or ICE.

Problems in Paris..after 2 hours waiting to buy reservation from Paris to Amsterdam at Gare de Nord... they give me tgv train to Lille (18eur) at 7:58 .. at 9:00am we are at Lille but regional train from Lile to Kortrijk go at 9:05 from other station in Lile so my next train is at 13:05 :(
other combination is eurostar train from lille to bruxelles..where to buy reservation? fare? is it possible to buy in train or on station that day?

if i go with that train in 13:05, i have only 8 min to change at Kortijk and few minutes at Antwerpen ..and if everything be good, every train on time i will be at amsterdam at 17:09...only 1 hour in this city...i have night train for berlin in 19:01 :(

Hej!

Lille Flandres (you arrive at Lille Europe) 1008 - 1155 Antwerpen Centraal
Antwerpen Centraal 1200 - 1351 Amsterdam Centraal

Both trains without extra fees. The connection in Antwerpen usually works without problems. Otherwise there is a train one hour later.

Eurostar would be an option but costs at least around 6€ again...

thanks..they put that train today in time table :)

i think that with eurostar i can be at atmsterdam at 13:06 and with IC at 14:09 so only question is if 1 hour in amsterdam is enough pleasure for 6 eur :)

I do not know the exact fare for this part of Eurostar (Lille - Bruxelles) - it was once able to travel there for the price of a TGV reservation, but I do not know if this is still the case.
I'd say go with the relaxed IC variant, especially since you had to get a 18€ (!) reservation for the TGV to Lille.
