Travel Between Amsterdam and Maastricht

I have been informed that travel is 2.5 hours from Central Station and that trains run twice an hour. Is this true? and what time to they begin.

I have also been informed that trains back to Amsterdam from Maastricht to Central Station run every hour. Is this true and what time do they stop>

Hi Judith,

Would be weird logic if the frequency BACK would be different than FROM - it's also every 30 mins.

See www.ns.nl, from early morning until late evening.

All the best,

Thanks for your reply? Do you also know the best way to reach the American National Cemetery from Maastricht? My brother, a pilot in WWII, is listed on the MIA monument there.

Yep. Quite a few buses from Maastricht to 'Margraten kerkhof' (cemetery), taking around 20 mins. A.o. line 50 Maastricht-Aachen, every 15 mins from opposite the station.

All the best,

Normally on weekends you have direct trains as well to Maastricht. I checked the route planner and it shows a change in Sittard to a bus in february. But this is not normal.

I'm going to Maastricht from Amsterdam next Saturday and ns.nl planes route just with 2 changings, but during the week there are direct trains. Strange :(

Yes, but as said it's NOT normal. Track works that weekend. Always more a risk for that in weekends than on weekdays, sorry...
