    Does anyone have any knowledge about the best way to travel by train in northern Europe? I've got a week in which I would like to visit Paris, Gent/Belgium/Amsterdam and Frankfurt.

    Is it better to get a one week pass or individual advance purchase tickets?

    I'd appreciate any insight.

    Theres a website called something like the man in seat 62. Check it out.
    Will try and find a link, sure I have it bookmarked somewhere.

    I should have put a warning in, if youre anything like me hours can easily be lost when you visit that website.

    Buy your tickets in Holland... they appear to be cheaper from there

    Ask staff on the platform where the bar carriage will align and queue there. Everyone else will get on hunting for an available seat, and you'll get the best spot on the train.

    Have a look at interrail if you're planning on taking several trains over a number of days - could work out cheaper to buy a pass through them than the individual tickets

    http://www.interrail.eu/en

    I travelled Europe on the trains one summer with one of their passes and when comparing the cost along the way it certainly saved us money in central/western Europe
