Benelux is the name given to designate three neighbouring countries of western Europe. The three countries are the Netherlands, Belgium and Luxembourg. Each of the three countries has its own respective railway lines and national railway operator. The national Belgian Railway Company is known as NMBS/SNCB. In Luxembourg the national railway company is the Société Nationale des Chemins de Fer Luxembourgeois (CFL), whereas Nederlandse Spoorwegen (NS) is the main railway company of the Netherlands.
Belgium, Netherlands and Luxembourg are waiting for you! Taste a good beer sit on Brussel’s Grand Place square and admire the architecture. Have a wander around Amsterdam canals and test the well-known coffee shops. Don’t miss the deep gorge of Luxembourg. Enjoy your trip to Benelux going by train in any places you want.
Windmills and tulip fields of Holland, Flanders’ battlefields or Ardennes’ mountains and forest is a little sample of what you can see in Benelux, travelling by train. Fascinating Red Rocks of Luxembourg’s landscapes, Belgium’s beaches where you can go surfing, and fields and lakes of Netherland are waiting for you!
From Netherlands, you have to buy some Gouda or Edam cheeses which are very typical from there, while Luxembourg’s offers you excellent wines of the Moselle Valley. In Belgium, find the best chocolate factories in the world and try not to eat everything before coming back home, and don’t forget the waffles and beers!
