  • Bus, tram, metro

    Antwerp Transportation

    The city has trams and buses for getting around town. You can buy a pack of 10 tickets for 7 euro and are good for a set period of time. On weekends the trams run an hour later at night and tie into the night buses which a couple run until 3:30. I thought it was interesting that while some trams run along major streets where there is plenty of...

  • Train / Tram

    Oostende Transportation

    Following a recent (2011) initiative by the Belgian Fietsenwerk and NMBS, the Belgian Railways Company, most main Belgian train stations now have a bicycle sharing "station" on their forecourts. I'm not sure whether this is available to everyone or whether it is just for the use of Belgian (and maybe Dutch/French/German - see comment below)...

  • Trains

    Brussels Transportation

    The Thalys trains are a joint service of the Belgian, French, Dutch and German railways. They look like French TGV trains, which essentially is what they are. These trains can reach speeds of up to 300 kilometers per hour when the tracks permit. In practice, this means they are very fast between Brussels and Paris, but not on the rest of the...

  • Canal Boat Tours.

    Brugge Transportation

    One of the nicest ways to see Bruges is by taking a trip on the canal, there are five families that are allowed to organise tourist excursions by open boats on the canals. Each family is allowed 4 boats, so prices are regulated. These guided canal trips let you see the hidden corners of the city at water level. The rides last about 40 minutes and...

    The information boards at the station make it easy to find out which track and what time the train departs as well as if it an IC (intercity) IR (inter region and L (local). The IC generally only have a few stops between cities, while the local spends more time stopping than going.

  • Local taxis

    Brussels Transportation

    In the view from inside the taxi, I can see that there were also streetcars in those days and apparently similar cars are still operating. Arrival times, departure times and stops are shown at each tram stop. There are also convenient street maps at each stop. In 1950, we arrived by train (flying was not as common in those days) so we had no need...

  • Horse Drawn Carriage Tours.

    Brugge Transportation

    We did not do these horse and carriage tours as they are very expensive at 39 euros for 30 minutes around the town. This also includes a 10 minutes stop at the Minnenwater where the horse has a water stop. I also read that it is hard to hear the guide speak due to the noise of the horse and carriage on the cobbled streets. However if you would like...

    BEWARE! Although a day pass is very cheap there is a €150 block on your credit card for 30 DAYS! I made the mistake of buying 4 day passes on my card as my fellow travellers did not have a credit card and resulted in having a €600 block on my account! This left me with almost no money for the rest of my travels- I contacted velo-antwerpen in the...

This service runs daily between Oostend and the British Isles. It can take you to Dover, Ramsgate, Ipswich, London, Folkestone and Harwich. Despite the opening of the Chunnel between...

    For our hotel Meininger Brussels City Center, I found a parking garage very nearby for a good price (about 100 metres walking). It's in the Fernand Brunfautstraat (straat = street), underground. The tariff is a maximum of 13.50 euro per 24 hours. This is about 10 euro cheaper than the regular parking garages. Parking on the streets in Brussels is...

    Brugge Transportation

    From Mons we drove by car and it took an hour or an hour and a half--we had so much fun on the way I'm not sure how long it took, but I'd say probably at least an hour's drive from Brussels. The train station is located very near and might be most convenient if you are coming from Brussels. Cars are not to be found in this area so walking or...

    Antwerp Transportation

    Klapdorp is one of my favorite streets. It leads north from the town square / shopping district and bends east back towards the Central train station (sort of). Both sides of the street have small shops and restaurants. Often busy with pedestrians, the crowds lessen when you begin to encounter residential buildings and the occasional church. This...

Once in the old town everything is close and you do not need to take the bus. Brujas no es una ciudad grande por lo que no hay que usar transporte...
