In the aftermath of the Volcanic eruption in Iceland and continuing economic pressure, more and more European travellers are turning to rail and roads to reach their holiday destinations.
And now, the Dutch city of Amsterdam is attracting more tourists because of its good European connections.
The city's thoroughfares provide easy access to a vast network of superhighways that lead to all parts of Europe. Since 2009, the High-Speed-Line between Amsterdam, Brussels and Paris has made it possible to reach Paris by train within 3 hours and 15 minutes.
Tobias, tourist, said, "In my situation from London to Amsterdam, I have done three times, via Paris and via Brussels as well. London, Paris and Amsterdam and then back and forward. It's very convenient, and I am not so sure if it's cheaper but is more enjoyable."
