I enjoy travel by bus. Since we lived in nearby Maastricht, NL, we used the bus going to Belgium several times. The bus service called de Lijn is very convenient. Here is a picture of the one going to Hasselt.
We love our mayor here in Hasselt . And the reason for that is that he made all the busses in and around the city free. No pay. Free ride for everyone. You can get a brochure for all the timetables and routes off the busses at the busstation.
Travelling around Hasselt with the city bus is free of charge. All buses lead to the Stationsplein. And you won't have to wait any longer than half an hour. Just get on, no need to pay. These are lines H1 to H9, shuttle bus BP and CP, H11, H12.
From east to west : the E 314 (Köln, Aachen, Heerlen, Hasselt, Brussels, Oostende), exit 29, 10 km north of Hasselt.
From north to south : the E 313 (Antwerp, Hasselt, Liège), exits 27BIS, 28 or 29.
Hasselt is also within easy reach from all railway stations in Belgium.
There are IC-connections (every hour, 7 days a week) to Hasselt from Oostende, Brugge, Gent, Brussels, Antwerpen and Liège.
It reached every national and international newspaper cover.
Since 1 July 1997, travelling by bus in Hasselt has been free of charge. Buses operate very frequently. They take you to the town centre in no more than 10 minutes. This means that tourists can reach all our sights easily.
Hasselt is a small city. It is easy to do everything on foot. Here is a map of the walk we did (see my 'must see activity' section for the walk).
Hasselt is easily accessible via the E313 (exit 27, 28, or 29) and E314 (exit 29) motorways. There are several car parks in and around the city centre.
Many years ago - this was the way to transport local goods - the museum will show you the different ways - and the importance of transport !
Getting around in Bokrijk - take the horse !!
The domain is so huge - use this way of internal transport !
