Brussels Midi station to Charleroi shuttle bus

by Birsen

Hi,

I will arrive to Brussels Midi Station at 10:42 am (Monday 21 June).My flight is at 1:20 pm from Charleroi Airport. (I have to be at the airport the latest 11:40 am, I don't have to check in)

My questions are:

-How far is Brussels Midi Train station - Charleroi Airport by shuttle bus? (minutes)

-Do you think 1 hour would be enough time to catch my flight?

Thanks for the help

Birsen

http://www.charleroi-airport.com/en/passengers/acces-and-parking/shuttles-brussels/index.html gives you all info - schedule, time of journey, cost, etc. Note that the journey takes one hour and it is advised that you take a bus at least three hours before your scheduled flight departure time. Imho you do not have enough time if you arrive at Brussels Midi at 10.42.

I just got back from Brussels and they recommend that you take the shuttlebus 3 hours before your flight. The bus itself takes almost one hour and you need to check in I guess around 40 minutes before your fligth. With some time in queue before you check in you could do the math yourself.

We took the shuttlebus 3 hours in advance and had time to eat and do some shopping before we had to go to the gate, so 2-2,5 hours could be enough.

Thanks for the info and advises all... I will change my itenarary to 9:42 am arriving to Brussels Midi. That way I won't have the stress for catching it. There is 10:00 am bus, If I take that one I'll arrive to the airport at 11:00 That will be plenty enough time.

When you arrive at Brussels Midi you should know exactly where you are going to catch the bus - it is not that easy but I expect if you ask someone official they will be able to tell you. The signs are not at all clear, or they weren't when we used that route. I just mention it because if you arrive at 09.42 that doesn't give you that long to get off the train and find your way.... the bus stop is outside the station and across the road....

My trip went well. I arrive to Charleroi airport at 5:00pm went out to the street (it is very small airport) in a minute and took the 5:15 pm shuttle bus right infront of the airport exit. (you must buy the ticket at the boot it's just 50m. away -13€ one way)the trip was about 50 min. It drop me in front of the Brussels midi train station.

On my way back, I decided to take 10 am bus from Brussels midi. I was there 15 min early. The bus was not punctual it waited till the bus to be totally full so we took of at 10:30 am. I paid the ride to the bus driver. The trip again took about 50 min. My plane was at 1:20 pm but I had half an hour delay so arrived a bit early and killed some time there...

Travel Tips for Brussels

Fernand Khnopff

by belgianchocolate

'Fernand Khnopff' 1858-1921 grew up in Brugge.
After his sister was born in 1864 the family
moved to Brussels.
Soon he went to art school together with
'James Ensor'.

Khnopff work is spread all over the world and
is seen as Belgium most representative
artist for symbolism.

In 2004 the museum for fine arts in brussels
brought together 250 works in a nice exhibition.
Paintings , sculptures , drawings, pictures...

The nice thing about Belgian museums they
also often redecorate the museum for
temporary exhibits.
A matching wall paper here , there some
summary painted wall decorations.
Very nice. Also nice were the works from
Gustav Klimt , Ensor , Macintosch... to
give an idea of the art during that period.

I think he has only a few really really nice
paintings , still a very nice memory.

Have a look here.
There might just be a nice exposition when
you are visiting.

Another thing I want to tell you is the typical
Belgian thing. There were also pictures on
exposure of the artists house.
Knocked down...gone. Something that
happens way to often in Belgium.

Some tips'
It might get really crowded during the weekends...
Puchasing a ticket could take long!
If your staying outside Brussels check
for a combi ticket , train-museum-exhibition.
A lot cheaper and you avoid long lines.
Or order your ticket in advance.

Plenty of good bars

by toonsarah

We found several nice bars in the vicinity of the Grand Place and for so touristy an area didn’t think the prices were over-inflated. One we particularly liked was La Faucon to the east of the square, where we enjoyed a post-dinner coffee and guenever. Another was the Mannekin Taverne – confusingly not very near the Mannekin Pis but to the north west of the Grand Place on the road leading to the Bourse. Here I liked the draught brown beer, Grimbergen.

Sablon square.

by Maurizioago

De Kleine Zavel/Le Petit Sablon (it's the real name; in Flemish and French languages) was originally a horse market. In 1890 it was turned into a garden. It is surrounded by 48 statues representing the Medieval guilds of Brussels. In the center of the square you can see a statue of the counts of Egmont and Hoorne who were excecuted at the Grand Markt in 1568 by order of Philip II of Spain.

Wildlife?

by belgianchocolate

Brussels is among the greenest capitals
worldwide. We have to thank 'Leopold II' for that.

'Parc Tenbosch' or 'Tenboschpark' is one of
the smaller ones and less known.
You wont find it in a tourist guide as 'must see.'
In many ways it is quit charming.
It has some water , a nice little house.
People from the neighboorhood come here
to relax and enjoy this green oasis.
It is not that visible from the street side ,
surrounded by great architecture. What I found so remarcable about this
parc is the wildlife. The birds I saw , waw
First I saw a couple of 'vlaamse gaaien'.
Please check on this webpage for some great pictures.
I can assure you we don't seen them that
often.
In Enlish his name would be 'Eurasian Jay'.
He is the only colorfull member of the crow-family.

Next thing we saw is even more weird...
A couple of large parakeets. They absolutely
don't belong in Belgium. Way too cold
for them. But when I took information it
seems that a population of escaped birds
survives in Brussels parcs.
Every building surrounding the parc houses
some birds and these latin-american birds
seem to survive during the winter.

They sounded very happy on this nice
first-sunlight-day.

where is the parc?
There is an entrance at the 'vleurgatstraat'...
and the parc is in the middle of the 'louisawijk'
A neighboorhood know for it's restaurants ,
posh shops and great architecture.

This is the THEATRE ROYAL DE...

by Nice_Girl

This is the THEATRE ROYAL DE LA MONNAIE : The 1830's revolution was born here during a performance of Auber's opera called 'La muette de Portici'.. Destroyed by fire in 1855, it was rebuilt by Poelart. Located place de la Monnaie (city centre) near rue Neuve (shopping area) and Metro De Brouckere.
