Arrived by train and this spacious modern railway station is the perfect way to arrive. The staff were very helpful and printed off out train times and connecting trains.

I do not even know why the Bruges Railway Station is listed as a tourist site? It is like many other railway stations in other cities in Belgium. Just look at the building if you happen to travel by train.

Accessible station to the south of the city with trains to Brussels every hour and regular buses into the city centre for a couple of euros.

It's a station, but you can walk into the town easily enough and there are lots of Buses for 2 Euros. Look for Centrum on indicator boards.

Easy top find and navigate your way around with plenty of buses and taxis on hand to get you quickly to where you need to go. Friendly and helpful staff who spoke English to help you out if needed.

Went here on my solo bicycle tour of Belgium and the battle fields of WWI and WWII, and was overly impressed with this piece of history. Decent train station, plenty of helpful signs and staff around. Little English with some, but that's my fault for not learning enough French before going.

We were impressed with the station - train information was well presented. Even better was the Tourist Information office which was on the right as you exit the main door. A very pleasant woman helped us find the way to the hotel and advised us on the times for our train back to Brussels

I like the frontage of the station. Inside it's like many other mainline stations, but from the outside it's so much nicer.

The station in Bruges is easy to navigate. There were lifts which made getting from one level to the next easy with luggage. Just have 50p if you need to use the toilet. There are plenty of taxis and buses waiting just outside the station to take you into the center of town.
