    Hi Claudia,

    A rail connection from Amsterdam to Belgrade would take at least 27 hours in duration and would involve at least 2 train changes along the way; once in Munich and then once in Villach. This connection involves taking the overnight train from Amsterdam to Munich, where you would connect to continue on the following morning.

    Otherwise, the connection would involve 3 train changes along the way; once in Dusseldorf, once in Munich and then once in Budapest (with this connection, the overnight portion would be from Munich to Budapest, where you would connect to continue on the following morning) or else once in Frankfurt Airport or Frankfurt, once in Vienna and then once in Budapest (with this connection, the overnight portion would be from Frankfurt Airport or Frankfurt to Vienna, where you would connect to continue on the following morning).

    To view schedules for such a connection on our website, you would piece together the journey by doing separate searches for each segment of the trip (i.e. one search for the night train from Amsterdam to Munich, another search for connecting trains from Munich to Villach and another search for connecting trains from Villach to Belgrade).

    However, especially since you are doing this as a roundtrip, your best option would be to purchase a rail pass to cover the ticket costs for your travel. To cover your trip, you would purchase a 5 country Eurail Select Pass to include the Benelux, Germany, Austria, Hungary, and Montenegro/Serbia if you opt to take one of the connections that goes via Budapest. Otherwise, if you opt to take the connection that goes via Villach, then you would purchase the 5 country Eurail Select Pass to include the Benelux, Germany, Austria, Croatia/Slovenia, and Montenegro/Serbia.

    The Benelux covers Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg and counts them as one country for the purpose of rail passes, so it would cover your travel out of Amsterdam. Croatia and Slovenia are counted together as one country for the purpose of rail passes, as is Montenegro and Serbia.

    To purchase the Eurail Select Pass, you would click here: http://www.raileurope.com/rail-ticket....

    After you add the pass to your shopping cart, you would just click 'Continue Shopping' to go back and do your reservations for each of the trains that comprise of the connection you choose. On the next screen, you would then click 'Buy a Reservation' under where it says 'Reservations for Pass Holders' (if starting on the homepage, you would just click 'Book a Reservation for Your Pass'). Just be sure to remember to piece together the connection by doing separate searches for each segment of the journey. All of the trains comprising of the connections between Amsterdam and Belgrade do require reservations as a supplement to the rail pass.

    If nothing displays for the segments from Villach to Belgrade or Budapest to Belgrade, then you would call us at 1-800-622-8600 to purchase those reservations. Some of the trains comprising of these connections can sell out very quickly, so I would just recommend booking your reservations as soon as possible.
