Train location in Brussels

We will be flying into Brussels from JFK. How far is the train station from the airport? How long does it take to get downtown?

from the Brussels Airport website ( "The airport train station is located below the terminal (basement level-1). Up to 4 trains an hour connect the airport to Brussels North, Brussels Central and Brussels Midi stations." So the station is AT the airport. Looking at the Belgian Rail website it appears to take between 22 and 26 minutes to Bruxelles-Midi depending on the route (a few min less to Central or Nord as the train stops there and other places first)

It is very easy to find the station - just follow the signs in the terminal. We took the train to Grand Place during a layover. Worked great.

The Grosse Markt (or Grande Place as we more commonly know it- I've spent the past week immersed in Flemish) is less than 5 minutes on foot from the Centraal station.
