While you're there

At the heart of Europe, Brussels, the capital of Flanders, provides an excellent base to explore this charming region – and beyond. Flanders is dotted with historical cities that are teeming with history and atmosphere. These Flemish cities exhibit their authentic charm with cobblestone streets, beguinages, pedestrian shopping streets, cathedrals and internationally renowned art. Brussels is easily accessible by train from Paris (1h22 trip), Amsterdam (1h13 trip) and London (2h10 trip).


Brussels is so much more than a suspiciously boring political and administrative centre. The capital of Flanders, and the de facto capital of Europe, is a mosaic of languages, cultures and traditions, hosts over eighty museums, numerous tourist attractions, a vibrant nightlife, countless restaurants and endless shopping opportunities. The starting point for any visit to Brussels is the Grand Place, so often described as the most beautiful square in the world. A brief stroll away and on your way to admire Manneken Pis, a miniscule statue with a larger-than-life reputation, you’ll notice many facades adorned with striking comic frescos. Indeed, this too is Brussels: comic strip walls, comic strip shops and even a comic strip museum... Surreal!

What better way to enjoy life than watching the world go by as you sample one of the hundreds of local beers served at a lively café terrace, or to indulge in some of the local specialties at the many gastronomic restaurants?

Shopping lovers have a broad variety of choice in Brussels. The Rue Neuve and its brands, the Sablon and its antiques, the Place du Jeu de Balle and its flea market as well as the Avenue de la Toison d’Or and its luxury goods, are prescribed!

Customer reviews

  • "excellent service"    
    This was our first experience travelling Europe by train. It was so easy and a comfortable way to go. Having the rail Europe app to assist is a must. We have already recommended this to many of our friends and will use this again.  
  • "Paris Nord - Bruges"    
    Our journey was excellent train very clean and comfortable would defiantly recommend and would travel by train myself again  
  • "Great Trip"    
    Great way to get from London to Brussels. WIFI would make trip even better.  
  • "AMsterdam to Brussels"    
    Train journey was great. very quiet, convenient and left on time. Unfortunately we ran almost an hour late by the time we reached Brussels, apparently due to various signal works or isues enroute. Considering my other train trips were all on time, this was most unusual and I accept that it happens occasionally.  
  • "First experience very positive"    
    This was our first experience on Eurostar and we were very impresses with how smoothly it went. It didn't take long to work out how to locate the platforms and our carriage.  
  • "excellent service"    
    recommend travelling the train service in Europe, very efficient and reliable. Keep up the service  
  • "First class experience"    
    That was my first time on the train in Europe and it was the wonderful experiences. I quite liked the meal served on board as well. Only one thing I would like to see some improvements is the bathroom.  
  • "Connection with local trains"    
    Caught a local train to connect to Poitiers-Paris it was delayed so had to get replacement tickets for a later Thalys train. No charge. Made it tight to connect to Eurostar back to London. Needed all of planned 2 hour gap to connect. The reason value for money was rated low was, it was a last minute decision - never leave bookings to the last minute. Early bookings are good value.  
  • "Great start to my Holiday"    
    Service was excellent. Offered breakfast which was a lovely added bonus. toilets where clean which is very important to me. Did notice someone going around to clean them. Very comfortable journey.  
  • "health issues"    
    Seating very comfortable. Trip enjoyable. views great. Toilets very dirty. Did not see any one around to clean them. Traveling in first class I had hoped for some service but there was none. Traveling alone it is difficult to have to carry around your luggage in order to buy some food or get a drink 2 coaches further down. Did not like traveling backwards as the seats where placed that way  
  • "Fast and convenient"    
    This is the only way to travel between European cities. And RailEurope made it super easy, especially with your own Travel Book that included your train information, station information with maps and information on your destination. Highly recommend.  
  • "Punctual efficient trip"    
    Nothing to fault, arrived at destination on time  
  • "Luxury"    
    It is a luxury to take a train between countries and undersea, city centre to city centre. This makes up for the much greater expense of train as against air travel.  
  • "Simplicity"    
    More mundane than Eurostar but enjoyable. Spacious and quiet.  
  • "Trains"    
    Very comfortable and convenient traveling by train rather than plane
