Amsterdam to Antwerpen / Antwerp / Anvers by train

Share this journey with a friend...

There are two train services which travel between Amsterdam and Antwerpen:
(1) The high speed Thalys trains are faster and if you can book ahead, they're often not more expensive.
(2) The slower IC trains will be cheaper when the most heavily discounted tickets for those Thalys trains have sold out, so they will also be cheaper when booking last minute at the station.
Rail pass users can make big savings by taking the IC trains.
