Travel info

Commonly made mistakes:

  • some airlines fly to Brussels-South Charleroi Airport, which is 45 kilometers away (+/- 30 miles) from Bruxelles (closest airport is Brussels National Zaventem Airport)
  • railway station “Bruxelles-Midi” is not the same as “Bruxelles-Central” (“Midi” is French, and here it means “South”)
  • railway station “Bruxelles-Midi” / “Brussels-South” has nothing to do with Brussels-South Airport
