Unfortunately, each of the European countries has their own train system and web site. That said, they will book tickets for each other at main stations. Most special prices are for those outside of a country (to tempt you to enter, rather than cater to their own captive audience).

A lot depends on what you want to see. The high speed trains can be much more expensive than the local ones, but for example it takes a little over an hour to get from Amsterdam to Brussels and less than three hours to get from Amsterdam to Paris. The GErman, French, Italian and Spanish systems are particularly well developed. I think it only took about three hours when we took the train a number of years ago between Prague and Vienna. Once in Prague, however, you are in a place where everything leaving is pretty slow. Switzerland is certainly an option from Austria or Italy, but be aware that it is probably one of the more expensive places in the world to get a given level of accomodations, food and transport. It depends more on what area of Europe you would like to see and you budget than on the time it takes to make a given train trip (as there are generally lots of routing alternatives).
