Flixbus Coach Amsterdam to Germany, Europe

  Flixbus is a long-distance international bus company from Germany. It operates coach services from Amsterdam and other Dutch cities to both Germany and European destinations.

Flixbus was first established in 2013 following the deregulation of the German bus market. It has since expanded rapidly and in 2015 merged with rival MeinFernBus. In summer 2016 it effectively took over the services of Megabus Europe.

It currently operates to some 900 destinations in 20 countries.

Flixbus offers regular services between Amsterdam and dozens of cities in Germany. This large German network includes the likes of Berlin, Cologne, Dresden, Dusseldorf, Emmerich, Frankfurt, Hamburg, Heidelberg, Koblenz, Mainz, Munich, Stuttgart... plus many other smaller cities.

Flixbus also serves Vienna (Austria), Copenhagen (Denmark), Malmo (Sweden) and Milan (Italy) - these require a single change.  The route network is expected to grow significantly in the coming years.
