Bruges, Belgium


Travel Itinerary
location of Mykonos

Bruges (Dutch: Brugge) is a town in Flanders, the northern part of Belgium.

By plane

A large number of carriers offer direct flights to Brussels. Belgium's main airport has its own railway station. Bruges can easily be reached through the airports of Brussels, Charleroi (Brussels South) and Lille, so getting to Bruges by train is by far the easiest way. Only one change at one of the three main stations is needed and the entire connection takes about 1:20.

By train

Trains to and from Brussels leave every 30 minutes during the day. The journey from Brussel-Zuid (French: Bruxelles-Midi) to Bruges takes about an hour. If you are traveling on the Eurostar that same day, this cost may be included in your ticket if it shows "Any Belgian Station". Otherwise, buy a ticket when you get to the station. For more information on schedules, prices, and services visit the website of the NMBS/SNCB. Be aware that trains are often full to and from Bruges, especially during rush hours, so if you or your colleagues have any problems with mobility you could be standing the whole trip or at best sitting in the entry area of the carriage.
