### SZG-AMS Weekend Break

Posted:

**Sat Jan 28, 2012 6:15 pm**So, my best friend wants to go to Amsterdam for a city break in March. We're looking at 29 March-1 April. I am not so keen as I don't really want to miss classes on that Thursday, so I am trying to leave later in the afternoon but I don't think that is really possible, so I will have to make arrangements with my professors.

I'm not so keen on my options, I'd only like to spend 150€ per person but the idea of spending 11 hours in Deutsche Bahn is just as unappealing as the idea of connecting through FRA.

I was thinking about the following:

SZG-FRA-AMS on VO/LH for 188€ per person which gets us in for dinner.

SZG-MUC on ÖBB (Rail) then MUC-AMS on CityNightLine Rail for 133€ (but with a hellish return involving 4 connections).

If anyone can think of a better option, that is greatly appreciated. I looked at 4U to CGN but that doesn't work as there is no flight on Thursday 29 March. HV is not possible as my Timbuk2 bag is too big by 5cm.

SZG-DUS, MUC-AMS... everything is possible.

Thanks in advance for your ideas.
