Trains to Brussels Find train times and tickets

Why does one hear so much about Paris and so little about Brussels? Experienced travellers tell us that Brussels is actually Europe’s most underrated capital. True, as a key destination for business and Eurocrats, Brussels can be pricey, but the cost of hotels plummets on weekend nights. Brussels is a great choice for a city break. This cosmopolitan city offers great food, fine architecture and a lively arts scene.

The Grand Place (Grote Markt in Dutch) is the hub to which all visitors to Brussels inevitably return. This is one of Europe’s finest urban spaces. The nearest railway station to the Grand Place is Brussels Central, which is served by a huge range of local and regional train services as well as Intercity trains to Brussels Airport, Antwerp, Liège, Rotterdam, Amsterdam and Luxembourg.

For high-speed trains make for Brussels Midi (Zuid in Dutch), from where there are direct trains to London, Paris, Amsterdam, Cologne, Düsseldorf and Frankfurt. Brussels Midi also offers a good range of French TGV trains to provincial cities across France, with regular departures to Lille, Nice, Marseille, Lyon and Montpellier. A new high-speed TGV link to Strasbourg was launched in April 2016, with frequency doubled from once to twice daily in July 2016. All Intercity trains (and regional and local services) which serve Brussels Central also serve Brussels Midi.
