    We are off to Brugges on the 6th December for a few days and fancy a day trip into Brussels, Is there any particular station in Brussels that is closest to the christmas markets?

    From the Man in Seat 61:

    Bruges to Brussels for €13...

    Belgian domestic InterCity trains link Bruges with Brussels every half-hour throughout the day, fare around €13 each way.

    The price is fixed and no reservation is either necessary or possible. Just turn up, buy a ticket and hop on the next train, easy!

    To check times & prices, and buy a print-at-home ticket online to save time at the ticket office, use the Belgian Railways website www.belgianrail.be.

    From Belgian Railways:

    From:Brugge [NMBS/SNCB]
    To:Bru.-Centraal / Brux.-Central [NMBS/SNCB]

    We did Bruges last year also and were a little disappointed with the xmas market, however the rest of Bruges more than made up for it, this is why we thought we would hit Brussels aswell. Thanks for the tips
