  • Train station Bruges and Amsterdam, long-distance trains. Tallis's seats, but the regular small distance train seats if you want, click here to get better. Super a little on the premises on the first floor and the bakery I etc. also is useful in quite.

  • The train station is pretty good. Not as organised as other main cities but that's only because of te recent terrorist attacks damages that they have to repair. But there are signs everywhere for things and everybody speaks English with plenty of food and chocolate shops around the corners so there's no problem at all.
  • Very poor information systems giving conflicting and inaccurate information. Apparently, our train's been at the platform (au quai, aan perron) for a good half hour. People tell us that information boards elsewhere in the station say there is an estimated delay of about 50 minutes. Reassuring, since the train is not (and has not been) at the station , and should have left 10 minutes ago. (The Thalys phone apps confirm that it's delayed.)
  • Beware pickpockets. Mostly for international and speedtrains, even Eurostar. And if you catch a train, be aware that they steal mostly on platforms and trains on hold. Keep an eye on stuff bags etc until doors are closed ans train departed.
  • Not as hard to navigate as it first seems. Needs more open public seating. Could use wind breaks to keep cold air out in the fall & winter.
  • BXL Midi/ Zuidstation (which means 'South Station' btw) is the biggest Brussels station in Brussels where international trains arrive/depart. Unfortunately not very organised. Don't worry, from this station, Brussels' centre is only 3 stops away with tram 3 or 4 ( get off at 'Beurs/Bourse').
