Coffee and bar with a difference, and incredible model railway layout. We loved this, and the coffee was good, and the alcohol list extensive, though it was too early in the day for wine or beer for us.

The railway set up is amazing. Unfortuantely we cannot comment on the food due to the owner not having anything available when we were there.

Very enjoyable, spotted this on tripadvisor and was quite dubious but thought to give it a go. Clearly someones passion and a great way to share it. The beer was cheap, the atmosphere was friendly and the display highly impressive it even had day and night!!

A little ramshackled at one end as it seems very much still in construction by plenty of seating by the bar!

Its free and you can even have a beer whilst admiring the hard work gone into building the Rail City. Very interesting, you could stare for hours!!

We found Rail City on our first trip to Bruges and it was an instant hit with our family, especially my 2 year old grandson. We visited several times then and when we booked to go back to Bruges, first thing he asked us was 'Can we go to Rail city again?' We were glad he wanted to go back, as we enjoyed it so much ourselves.
This is a huge model railway layout in a pub in the centre of Bruges, owned by a model railway enthusiast. the layout covers 17 square metres and has lots of features including bridges, tunnels and stations. Each hour, the computer controlled layout goes from daylight to nighttime and street lights, building lights train lights etc come on. A great place to spend several hours.
