Brussels Midi - baggage

by Mdezemone

Hi,
I will travel from Amsterdam to Paris by train and I would like to visit Brussels, but just for a few hours (maybe 4 or 5). I´m thinking about go to Bruges during the same day either.
I would like to know:
1) Does the Brussels-Midi Train Station have any place that I could pay and leave my baggage?
2) How much does it probably cost for 5 or 10 hours?
Thank you so much.
Marcus

The answer is yes, there are lockers and left luggage (manned) service.
Here's information:

http://hari.b-holding.be/infsta/InfoStation.aspx?StationId=1000220&lang=3

I found this in a Dutch brochure:
The price is 2,50€ per piece of luggage per calendar day in the staffed luggage service. The use of the automatic lockers is only allowed for a maximum of 72 hours (at a cost of 2€, 2,80€ or 3,30€, depending on volume).

I turned this into a travel tip. You may want to save it because you might not be able to find it back when you return to the forum.

It is a good advice about the lockers
at the website of the belgian railroad you can find info of all stations
http://www.b-rail.be/nat/E/practical/stationfacilities/index.php
I would not advice to visit Bruges and Brussels at such short time.
I would recommend to stay in Brussels and visit Bruges another occasion.
You will have to rush through everything and will not be able to enjoy.

Rub The Bronze Statute For Good Luck.

by Mikebb

There are many buiuldings, fine architecture, historical items etc etc in the Grand Place, however tucked away in front of a building close to Rue C Buls Stratt is a beautiful bronze statute of Everard 't Serclaes who was murdered defending Brussels in the 14th century.

Legend says that if you rub the bronze arm of his statute it should bring you luck. The arm shines bright where countles tourists rub his arm. It worked for us as the constant rain ceased by the next morning.

A Little Wierdness Of Language

by johngayton

Belgium has two main official languages (and a host of lesser ones including Walloon) these being Flemish (or Dutch) and French. I've heard, perhaps apocryphal, stories about Flemish speakers refusing to speak French even though they are bilingual (and vice versa).

It was quite wierd getting the train from Adinkerke back into Brussels as the train's in-carriage signage was wholly in Flemish until it passed Gand St Pierre when the display became bilingual. So maybe if the train is pretending not to be bilingual until having passed Gent the stories are actually true??

Walking/Cycling on dismantled railways line 160

by BeChar

A particularly pleasant route for walking or cycling consists of a part of the old railways "line 160", Brussels-Tervueren, dismanteled in 1972. See a description of line160, full of nowadays pictures.

The site is rather flat, with bridges passing over roads, making a perfect cycling route. Although the path is mainly covered by tree, the way is clearly marked with signs indicating main directions at crossing points and distances.

Leaving Ouderghem towards Woluwe (and Tervueren according to the old train destination), you may notice a house with fake windows (Trompe l'oeil - picture Bridge over Chaussée de Wavre), a sculpture dedicated to rails (picture), the Malou Castle (tip Chateau Malou) and, following the small river Woluwe, you can pass along a Mill (Tip Lindekemale Mill).

The beguinage church that...

by irisbe

The beguinage church that became very famous during 2000/2001 because it housed a huge amount of illegal immigrants.
They were called 'Sans papiers' which means they didn't had any paper or regulation paper.
They took refugee in the church, but one day, the roof caught fire because there was a shortcut on the electricity.
There was a lot of damage but lucky enough no one got hurt. Nearby this church you have an old beguinage which is now an elderly house.
I have been told that you can ring the bell and invite yourself for a cup of coffee.
I will check that next time when I am in the neighborhood!
