Hi ngezza,

As far as i know the only direct connection from Berlin to Amsterdam is by ICE (InterCity Express). Officially, you do need to pay a supplement (about €3,50 i think) which also counts as a seat reservation but i got away without one several times. Then again, it's a long ride, and having to swap seats in the middle of your journey can be annoying. If you don't reserve a seat, make sure you sit down in a non-reserved seat (you can see whether a seat is reserved above the window near the chair).

Hope that helps,

With the new ticket you don't have to pay any supplements on ICE, but if you make a reservation it's €3,50.
