Night Train from Amsterdam to Munich to Budapest

Good day,

So you’re in Amsterdam? Sweet.

If you enjoy being in Amsterdam but like myself detest waking up there, this is how you could chill out and end up in Budapest, the next day by taking a night train Amsterdam to Munich then Budapest.

The cost of a night train Amsterdam to Munich, Germany is 20E if you have a Eurail pass. From there the train leaves to Budapest ~2.5 hours later. You arrive in Munich at 7am and Budapest leaves at 9:30. Just enough time to meet some randoms and share some laughs.

The train arrives at Keleti station in Budapest at ~5pm. It goes through Vienna so if you last minute have a schizo moment, you could also hit up Prague or Bratislava, no problems.

The 20E ticket will get you a 6 person sleeper.  The train leaves at ~8:30pm so if you have been in Amsterdam all day, good chance you will have a great nights sleep and wake up when the conductor knocks on your window and says GUTEN MORGEN or something to that extent.

Worthwhile and great way to get moneys worth on pass.

    Travelling by train is fun, or at least that’s how I experienced it this summer 😉

    have you visited Belgium yet? because it’s in your list but I can’t find any posts about it? If you ever do, you shouldn’t forget to come to Ghent, it’s in the top 10 of Lonely Planet’s list of most interesting cities… and I can tell you that it’s the best city I know (maybe I’m a little biased because I live there, but still, I’m sure it’s worth a visit!)

    But, what I wanted to say: nice blog! travelling is definitely a way of having a non-boring life 😉

    I did hit up Belgium but only for a few hours haha. I was going to Paris and just hung out for a while. I consider myself in a country if I’ve been there for a bit. I don’t count if I just stayed in airport like Taiwan or Russia or Egypt :).
