“Easy to use and informative”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2013

The station at Bruges was a nice friendly place with helpful staff and a good tourist information office. Within 10 minutes of arriving in the city we had found out where the hotel was, which bus to take to get there and had been shown a map of the city. A very nice railway station in a very nice city.

“So convenient”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2013

There is a huge car park as well, so everybody who's visiting Bruges starts from here.
Located right on the edge of the historical center, it's an easy walk from here.
Public transportation is really convenient as well for them who don't like walking.

“Better info please”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2013

The station itself is clean and efficient, but It's a bit hard to work out how to get from there to the centre, with the bus routes a bit vague and maps of the centre lacking detail.

“Close to the city and accesible”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2013

Not very far from the city with regular connections that will take you to the heart of the old town... with a tourist information centre it's advisable to pick up your copy of the map from there and plan your stay accordingly

“Great location and service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

First of all the most important is its location. Some blocks away from Grand Place. It will probably take you about 10-15 mins walking to get there, it might sound too much for an already tired feet, but remember that Bruges is a small town. Almost all attractions are very close to each other. The trains are well maintained and the guys checking your ticket are very helpful and friendly. Remember trains in Europe are expensive, if you want to save some euro try traveling on the weekends. Rates are 50% off. Happy Traveling!
