Aachen Germany to Madrid, and then later Vienna to Amsterdam. Best train to take?

My friend and I have two train trips to take that we don't have tickets for yet. We already have Madrid to Barcelona. But the Aachen to Madrid looks like one has to go through Paris, then to Barcelona and then to Madrid. The train trips I want to take are either not available yet, or sold out. I don't know which on the Aachen to Madrid trip. And the same with the Vienna to Amsterdam trips. Since I was able to do the Barcelona train trip I'm worried those others are sold out already. The trip is scheduled to be in Aug and Sept. We need to leave Aachen and be in Madrid by Aug 15h.

The trip to Amsterdam is supposed to be on Sept 17th or 18th.

Any help and/or advice is greatly appreciated!

Hello Romana,

Thanks for your question.

You can travel as follows :-

- Aachen to Paris - Thalys train.

- Paris to Madrid via Barcelona - France-Spain High Speed and Renfe trains.

- Vienna to Amsterdam via Frankfurt - ICE trains.

Please note that your travel sectors can be booked only 2 and 3 months in advance.

Please try again closer to your departure dates.

In order to book tickets, please visit our website.

You would need to feed in the Departure city and the Arrival city along with the travel date and preferred time & the number of passengers (Senior, adults, youth and children), and then click on “search tickets”. Once you do so, you would find the schedules along with the fares.

Hope this helps!!!
