The fastest and most convenient way to travel from Birmingham to Amsterdam is to book a direct flight from Birmingham International Airport. The journey takes approximately 3 hours and 30 minutes, including transport to the airport from the city centre, check-in and waiting times. It is possible to travel to Amsterdam by bus from Birmingham Coach Station, but this often involves a lengthy stopover in London Victoria Coach Station and an overnight journey through Europe. Travel time can be up to 18 hours. Ticket prices from budget airlines tend to be competitive with coach fares.
Must Know: Cycling is the most popular way to travel around Amsterdam. The city is quite flat and filled with over 400 kilometres of bike paths.
Must See: For those interested in Amsterdam’s history and culture, the Anne Frank House and Van Gogh Museum are a must.
Must Do: Visit one of Amsterdam’s world famous coffee shops or take a cruise in a glass-roofed boat on one of the city’s the 160+ Golden Age canals.
Did you know? About 8,000 bikes get pulled out of the canals each year.
Flying is the easiest way to travel between Birmingham and Amsterdam. Both Flybe and KLM offer direct flights from Birmingham International Airport to Amsterdam Airport Schiphol. Flight time is less than 1 hour 30 minutes. Each airline schedules 5-6 flights a day. Depending on time of year and offers available, it may sometimes be cheaper to take a Virgin train from Birmingham New Street Station to Manchester Airport and fly to Amsterdam Schiphol on EasyJet or another low cost carrier. This will add about 2 hours to the journey.
