Greece to Enschede

by Kraig33 Online Now Jul 16, 2008 at 7:25 AM

Hi there, this is my first post.

I am moving to Enschede in August and want to find a cheap and easy way to go there. Prices during August are quite high.

I have found air routes to Amsterdam's airport and to Germany's Dortmund and Munchen.

Which one should i prefer?
Does anyone know of any train to go from Dortmund or Munchen to Enshcede? Mind i do not speak German so i do not know if i can communicate effectively in Germany.

Thanks!

    I can't really advise you about flying. But the train fare from Amsterdam Airport (Schiphol) to Enschede is 23,80 euro (one-way). It takes 2 hrs 15 mins approx. Some trains have 1 changeover, other trains are direct. Very easy!

    German railway, by the way, is www.bahn.de
    There are English versions of both bahn.de and ns.nl.

    Munchen-Enschede is a very long train ride. About 10-12 hours.
    So I would not choose that city.
    Dortmund-Enschede is a slightly longer train ride than Amsterdam-Enschede (just about 5 minutes longer).

    You could fly with Air Berlin from Athens to Munster/Osnabrück (FMO) for as low as Euro 166,-- one way and go by train to Enschede.

    Thanks for the replies.

    I was thinking of going to munster ( greven) and then to Enschede by train.
    I have never been to Germany before and i do not know if they speak English and if i will find my way around. What do you people think?

    Are there any information standards to ask for directions etc?

    Plenty of people speak English in Germany. In my experience I never met a German who didn't. But it never hurts to learn some phrases. You can google but there are also small travel dictionaries for sale.
