train on Saturday from Brussels to Bruges for day trip

Hi all

We're wanting to get a train from Brussels to Bruges for a day trip on a Saturday in April.

Where is the best train station to leave from, please? are the trains fairly regular? we assume the journey takes about an hour.

three of our party are under 26, we've heard something about discounts?? thanks all!!

Brussels, Belgium

1. Re: train on Saturday from Brussels to Bruges for day trip

Trains to Brugge depart from Bruxelles-Nord, Bruxelles-Central and Bruxelles-Midi, in that order (travelling through all 3). Which is "best" would depend on where in Brussels you are staying, but probably Gare centrale would be most convenient.

There are 2 IC trains, which are the fastest, each hour and yes THESE take 1 hr: there are also slower commuter trains - often double-decker - that stop at every station on the way.

As you are doing this trip on a Saturday, tell the ticket clerk you are coming back on the same day and they will sell you a weekend return for €14.80 (whereas a standard single is €13.80 and standard return, €27.60). You can buy Go Pass 1 (ONE) tickets online for those under 26 for €6 each way, i.e. €12 for return trip, but you cannot buy these at the station. See belgianrail.be/en/…go-pass-1.aspx

However, as your party is apparently more than 4 which means you would be doing at least 8 trips, you could also reduce cost for the group as a whole by purchasing a 10-trip Rail Pass for €76, which you can use between a group of you, making each individual trip (outward or return) €7.60: belgianrail.be/en/…rail-pass.aspx
