Options to travel from Brussels to Mainz, etc.

by amitabhsinghal

Hello,

I'll be reaching Brussels mid-June 2010, and want to go to Mainz and then on to Amsterdam for a couple of days and from there head back to Brussels to take the flight back home. I'll be most likely staying at Windsor Grand Palace.
My question is - what is the best and obviously cheapest method to get to Mainz and then from Mainz to Amsterdam. I dont really need multiple journey's etc.

thanks

Re: Options to travel from Brussels to Mainz, etc.

For that type of distances train is the obvious choice, and the German Railways' website is the obvious place to find information: www.bahn.de

Getting tickets for all these trips is easiest at the railway station. Don't worry about trains selling out. But if you want to book in advance here's how:

- Brussel Mainz:
From Brussel to Germany there are basically two train services. There is the "Thalys" service to Köln, where you can cange to an IC or ICE train for Mainz, and there is the "ICE" service to Frankfurt, where you can change to a local for Mainz. In my opinion the ICE service is superior, and I would book that one. You can book tickets all the way from Brussel to Mainz on this train from the Deutsche Bahn website. Prices start at 29,- See www.bahn.de. This site will also give you times for the Thalys service, but not prices. However you can get prices (and book tickets) from www.thalys.com. In that case you book the Köln - Mainz part on the Deutsche Bahn site.
- Mainz - Amsterdam: Just use the Deutsche Bahn site. For this route this site has all the trains and prices, and you should be able to book online without any problem.
- Amsterdam - Brussel:
On this route there are two services. Thalys runs the high speed service. You can book it on www.thalys.com. For the low speed IC service no advance booking is needed, just buy that at the station.

Thanks KVP, this is very useful. I'll check the site. I am specially pleased with your feedback that tickets can be bought at the stations, which is great. Having looked at thaly's and advance booking sites, the prices being indicated were really quite high.
ICE and others may be far inexpensive.

Cheers

Travel Tips for Brussels

Beer and Chocolate Galore!!!

by Canada2424

If you go to Belgium, you HAVE to try the chocolate and the NUMEROUS types of beer that the belgians have spent generations perfecting. If you don't drink beer, I feel sorry for you!:):) I miss the friends and STEF at the hostel who made the stay there so much more comfortable! Cheers!

Souvenirs from Brussels

by MartinaH

CHOCOLATE:

Everywhere in the city you'll find chocolate shops. There's chocolate and pralines for every taste. You should try out different sorts.

The chocolate shops around the Grand' Place are open until 9.00 or 10.00 pm.

In Belgium they produce 172.000 tons of chocolate a year and there are about 2.000 chocolate shops :-). Every town and even small villages have chocolate stores !
Many chocolatiers make their pralines still by hand.

Memories of a museum...'tkongomuseum

by belgianchocolate

Now the museums name is
Koninklijk museum voor midden-afrika,
Musée royal de L'Afrique centrale ,
Royal museum for central Africa'

As a kid I knew the museum as the
Kongomuseum. They got a very nice
website also in English.
It was always a big adventure when my
parents took me here. You have to know that
it is located in an amazing building.
One of those 'leopeld II' realisations. It was
build after the world fair in 1871 and has a little
bit versaille-recemblances.

I wasn't too interested in the african art from
the first exhibit rooms.
Also the largest collection in tropical
wood didn't do me a thing....
But they also got these large zoölogical
collection and 6 000 000 insects.
I was fascinated by the stuffed elephant , the
crocodiles , the giraffe...
These old dioramas with animals.
It all had that special atmosphere that did
something to me.

Actually the museum has become a museum
of a museum because since 1960 nothing
has changed.
By 2010 they want to make it a modern
museum again. I hope that the atmosphere
doesn't get lost. When I took a friend there to show him
my childhood memories we saw this
glass goblet with quit a large insect in it...
It was as large as a fist. And the sign said
'tick'. Djeezes this was huge. We soon started
to imagen where this tick would end up.
And finally we imagined with this lady at the
veterinarian with a little white dog with this 'TICK'
We could'nt stop laughing and we almost got
trown out...

Royal Museum for Central Africa
Leuvensesteenweg 13
3080 Tervuren - Belgium

(take a tram at montgomery station till you reach
the terminus , the museum is 300 meters
away in a very nice green setting ,
a beautifull garden with statues...)

Parc de Bruxelles

by Mikebb

A good place to rest after walking the Upper Town. Surrounded by some of the best buildings in Belgium, Palaces and the Belgian Parliament this park has a lake, fountains and pathways which are surrounded by trees.

Catch the Metro train to station Parc or tram92,93 or 94.

Christmass time in Brussels

by irisbe

Maybe one of the nice moments to visit Brussels during Winter time is the period starting from a couple of days before Christmass till New Year's end.
The city hall is beautiful enlighted (as ever) and the surrounding decoration and lights will add to the nice scenery.
