HI. I would love to stay in Brugge for two nights. But I would have to get to the Brussels Airport BRU for an 8:30 Flight... is this possible? Can't find a schedule for the train..
Well that is exactly the help I needed. I think I should probably leave Bruge late and stay at the airport hotel in Brussels - thank you
Try the journey planner on www.bahn.com. There are Intercity departures from Brugge from 04.10, change at Bruxelles Nord to an Interregio service, arriving BRU in about 12 minutes. That 04.10 would see you getting to the airport by 05.51. If you miss that connection (5 minutes to change platforms, down stairs, up other stairs, with luggage) then there are other departures from Nord to BRU - the 05.57 for example would get you to the airport at 06.09.
Excellent advice. I tend to make the more exciting choice and then end up very anxious... will do as you suggest. A
Does anyone have advice about the best hotel near the Brussels airport.. I would want to see central Brussels at night.. but need to be at the airport by 6:30 AM. I don't mind staying in a 2-3 star hotel.. but would like a recommendation.
