Europe train

I'm going to Europe on business next month and need to know how much it will cost me to get from Amsterdam to Frankfurt on the train once. I tried googling this but I keep getting lost in a mess of eurotrain monthly pass deals, etc.:confused:

Has anyone done this? Any ideas how much I will pay for a one way ticket between these two cities?

Much appreciated

cheaper to fly, specially if u book from now. it would be nicest to rent a car and drive now, it's a nice drive through the country side.

Nobody flies directly from Amsterdam to Frankfurt, so the train is probably the best bet, in this case.

Bah, proven wrong again.

Apparently I can't work the internet today, I had looked on the Schiphol website plus a couple others and everything that I found had stops. Tried again, and sure enough, you're right.

I agree with Lovely N Amazing. I travelled a shit load by train the last two times I was in Europe and looking at the same routes I took by plane, i could have saved a bundle. On the other hand you meet interesting people on the train (*ahem* me!) and you get to see the country side... but if you're not a backpacking touristy student and there strictly for business, go with the plane... you're in, you're out, package of peanuts!

klm and luftansa do. i'd fly - especially since your work is covering it.
Totally.

The whole "you'll see more of the country side on the train" is a crock. Think about how much of the country you see on the GO train and you get the picture. I've spent weeks on the trains in Europe and would fly any chance I got. I think the scenery is better for the most part in the plane actually.

BIG exception is a train through the alps

and anywhere else in swistzerland.

there are also 2 budget lines that do frankfurt amsterdam, u'd have to google it, i think one is air berlin, not sure if easy jet does that route. i'm quite sure thomas cook does that route aswell.

Thanks for all the advice ppl, just booked my "eurail" pass or whatever it's called. Ran about 100 Euros for one way. I get a free meal though, I hope it's Bratwurst!!!
