YWAMKnowledgeBase:Travel to Brussels
As Belgium is conveniently located in the top half of Europe there are a great many means and ways of getting here.
Brussels is right on the E40 autoroute running from France into Germany. To cross the Channel our friends in YWAM England might like to investigate some cheap ferry sites or alternatively use the Eurotunnel.
There are great links to London, Paris, Holland and Germany via high speed express train. If you choose this method of transport you will need to book tickets to Brussels Gare-Du-Midi station. If you do arrive at another station you need to make your way to Gare-Du-Midi.
The main airport in Belgium is the Brussels National Airport in Zaventem. Cheep flights can be booked from Virgin Express, British Midland and other airlines. We will endeavour collect you and bring you to the base.
Ryan Air fly to Charelroi, an airport about 50km south of Brussels. On arrival in Charelroi there is a coach available to take you to Brussels every half hour. (pay the driver - no need to book) It costs €10.50 one way to take you to Brussels Gare-Du-Midi station. You can also take a local bus (€1.50) into Charelroi to the train station to catch a train to Gare-Du-Midi also (€8).
We hope that this aids you. If you have any questions please ask! Remember to let us know your travel details and a good contact number so we can pick you up.
