Transport to Brussles

by Longpham

Next week we will be in Europe:

1) Is there train station to Brussel City Center and back from the cruise ship we can walk to?

2) Should we reserve trains in advanced?

3) Is the city safe or pick pocket is waiting tourists?

1. There is a railway station, yes, and you do not need to reserve tickets in advance.

Train times and fares in English here;

2. If you put 'zeebrugge station' into Google maps you will see exactly how far the station is from the dock. You may prefer to get a taxi or bus.

3. There are pickpockets in every European city. Brussels is at least as safe as anywhere else and considerably safer than manyplaces. You need to pay attention to your valuables, stay alert and keep your eyes open wherever you travel (especially in crowds). Distribute valuables around your body, or use a moneybelt: don't just put your wallet in your back pocket!

Great, I also wish to visit Brugge and take the river tour there to save time.
Is it a good idea?
I have been in Brussels before but can revisit if Brugge is not equal attraction.

Brugges is absolutely lovely, and well worth visiting. It is a major attraction in Belgium, and very popular for short breaks with many Europeans (especially from the UK).

In fact, I'd suggest you go there before/instead of visiting Brussels. It's a very short journey by train from Zeebrugge.

You could easily spend all day wandering its streets, as well as taking a canal cruise.

Have a look at the VT Bruges pages (use the searchbox top right of this page). I have some.

Also look at the official Bruges tourist info site:

Travel Tips for Zeebrugge

Seaport

by Helga67

"Bruges-on-Sea" is a busy seaport and Belgium's only coastal deepwater port. There's always a lot of activity going on, container ships, fishing boats, ferries coming from England and even cruise ships all dock in this port.

Regular Sailings

by Carnation

Cheap Fares!
I used to travel to Zeebrugge every 2 weeks with a group of friends and spend the day over there shopping and siteseeing. For just £1.00 return fare we could sail over on the night Ferry from Felixstowe (10 miles from where I live) as foot passengers, and have a great evening on the ship. We would arrive the following morning, and off we would go and have fun!
Many senior citizens took advantage of the low fares and took regular trips from Felixstowe (Suffolk) to Zeebrugge. They always enjoyed themselves and were great fun to be around.

White sandy beach and lovely beach cabins.

by Helga67

If you visit Zeebrugge for the Sand Sculpture, you should also spend some time on the beach. It's one of the widest beaches at the Belgian Coast with lovely beach cabins. Here you will not find the mass tourism as you do find in the other coast towns, so it's nice and relaxing to spend some time here. There's an area for kids to play and a building with toilets.

by dedeckerm.

Zeebrugge is connected to the mother town Brugge by the 12-km long Boudewijn canal.
Zeebrugge has become a real world port. The main advantage of this sea resort is the outer harbour, allowing the biggest tankers and ocean steamers to moor here.

Sand sculpture Festival in Zeebrugge.

by Luchonda

"Atlantis - in Zeebrugge"

Belgian Coast !
Sand Sculptures
Zeebrugge-located at the belgian coast is in fact a container terminal receiving vessels of more than 4000 ton.But yearly there is a famous Festival going on!!
Highlights (i.e. best things to do, memorable moments, etc.) :
But yearly there is a sand-sculpture festival on the beach - always exposing different themes such as :
The fall of the Roman Empire

Bruges-City of Europe and in 2001, "The dinosaurs"

Ticket price is about 13 euro/pp excluding drinks/food. There are several stands where famous belgian beers are served.The prices of fast food are acceptable.

Quick tips/suggestions :
Combine this one day trip to see the beauty of the Belgian coast and its Festival.
Best Way to Get Around (i.e. walking, driving, taxis, public transportation etc.) :
From Ghent or Brussels by train is the easiest way. Special ticketing including transport and entrance fee.
This yearly Festival is constructed by means of 8.300 tons of sand (5.800 tons of local sand and 2.500 tons of special block shaped sand).
About 160 carvers are helping hands. Two artists and four supervisors are responsible for the OUTLOOK and theme expression.

The sculpture area covers about 5.700 m2 and the highest point reaches 14 meters.

Make shure you visit this PARK in the late afternoon and early evening (sundown gives a special athmosphere)

It is a nice one day trip for old and young. All facilities are foreseen.
I think this was the best sand-sculpture festival until now. The carvers came from different countries such as the Netherlands/Ireland/France/Spain and even the US.
In Scheveningen there is a yearly tradition of sand-sculptures too - so make your choice.
