Ofcourse there is a train. See www.nmbs.be for times and prices. The trip planner on that site can plan trips door to door, so you can just enter the address of the place you're going to and it will tell you what trains and buses (if any) you need to get to your destination.
Travel Tips for Blankenberge
World animals like we don't know them
The Eurasian Otter is the only species found in Europe and its population is very depleted. In some western countries it has become extinct.
Classic question : a seal, is it living at the north- or southpole. Yes you are partially right - the southpole - but in fact you will find seals at the southern atmosphere. I saw some species in South Africa, some in Argentina and of course the Galagapos. For this reason, don't be surprised to find seals in an area where palmtrees are growing aswell.
Blankenburg has more to offer than nice beaches. Everybody will enjoy a walk through the busy shopping streets of the centre of the city. In earlier times Blankenburg was nothing more than a small fishermen village at the coast, the picturesque harbour at the west end of the resort is now used by yachts rather than fishing boats. Because of its rather strategic position, the little village was often plundered and destroyed. Another problem was that the sea sometimes proved to be not only a source of income, but also a source of destruction through flooding. It was in the 19th century that the small town became one of the first Belgian seaside-resorts visited by tourists. Around 1850 the first (but not the last) hotels were constructed.
