Regional Train in Netherlands

Overview

Dutch trains: Regional and Intercity

Operated by NS, the Dutch national railway company, Intercity trains serve all major cities in the Netherlands. The domestic trains are also known as IC, and they come as single decker as well as double decker trains. Many of the Intercity trains in the Netherlands have free Wi-Fi on board. Travellers are not required to have a seat reservation.

Main cities in the Netherlands are linked to smaller towns thanks to the Sprinter trains. As the Intercity trains, the Sprinter has first and second class carriages which do not require seat reservations. Some Sprinter trains are double decker.

Note: A supplement is needed when travelling on the Amsterdam Schiphol-Rotterdam route with the Intercity direct.
