PUBLIC TRANSPORT FROM ABROAD

Airplane
You can fly to the airport at Brussels-Zaventem, Luxembourg or Charleroi. Then take the train; there are regular connections, you always have to change in Libramont.

  • Brussels: Brussels-Luxembourg line
  • Luxembourg: Luxembourg-Brussels line
  • Charleroi: Charleroi-Namur line, change in Namur (Namur-Luxembourg line), then in Libramont (Libramont-Virton line).

Train

  • If you come by train from Luxembourg, Germany, the Netherlands, the U.K. or the center or the west of France, you take a train to Brussels; see below.
  • If you come from the east of France, the nearest train station is Carignan, although the station of Montmédy offers more possibilities and is not very far either.

The cheapest way of travelling by train within Belgium may be by buying a rail pass (for sale in Belgian railway stations). However, if you come by Eurostar or TGV to Brussels, make sure your Eurostar or TGV ticket is valuable for any Belgian train station; this is much cheaper than buying a rail pass.
