  • South Station is named Max Belgium? The basic station. Next to Central station names as trains such as the TGV, Thalys International will be squared off at South Station. Ticket vending machines faster, avoid crowded Office not open 一 one place only. Neither the service on domestic routes and international routes. When no ticket, but ride the international check Al? Put in place domestic routes inside ticket inspections, so now he is good. And a small food court, convenience store, supermarket, fast-food shops as well as souvenir shops. Type 0.6 euro toilet is required, from buying a special coin on coin purchases near the entrance if you pour it at the entrance door is opened. So large were together. Liberty State Park with its grand place, not 15 minutes, trouble is Japanese national railways or metro. I didn't use taxi, but a little hard looking?

  • Nothing special. A station without much more. Dime a dozen. If you do not have to be do you not go there.

  • Little attractive, but station equipped with every comfort that a train traveler needs. Commuter or in transit from abroad, you will find everything from snack to flowers, of pharmacy to hair salon. Perfect to pass the time when you have about an hour.

  • 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').
