Amsterdam to Berlin

So I am planning a ferry from Newcastle to Amsterdam. Can anyone tell me is there a railway station at the Port of Amsterdam so I could then get a train to Berlin?

If so how long approx. does it take and is it a direct train to Berlin or would I have to change somewhere?

Thanks in advance

Hi there,

Well that ferry drops you at Ymuiden. DFDS also offers a paid shuttle to Amsterdam and that indeed drops you off in front of Amsterdam Centraal station. Which has direct trains to Berlin, every 2 hours, taking around 6:30 hours. Alternative to the DFDS shuttle is first 10-15 mins walk to closest public bus stop and then bus and train to Amsterdam, slightly cheaper but a lot less convenient...

All the best,

<Erik> & [Sandya]

Would it not be simpler to just fly to Berlin from Manchester, Liverpool or Edinburgh. OK so maybe you don't want to fly.

By the way the Port of Amsterdam & IJmuiden where the DFDS ferry docks are different places so don't get confused with that. There is also a cruise ship terminal in Amsterdam, the PTA.

I do not like flying which is the reason I will be travelling by ferry and rail.

Have you considered taking the sleeper train to London then Eurostar to Brussels and Thalys to Cologne then ICE to Berlin?
