I have a pretty general itinerary already sketched out which included a regional train ride from Brussels to Amsterdam to hop off at Antwerp for the afternoon and walk around. There is scheduled engineering work to happen that day and the train will only stop in Antwerp-Berchem.
From what I can tell it will add a 20-30 minute walk to get to Central station - is it worth the extra time/inconvenience to still stop in Antwerp on the way?
Do you think Central station will be open to walk into or closed completely?
Is Thalys a better option and just skip Antwerp?
