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 1,400 destinations in 27 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.
