the station is bigger than I expected, it was very clean, it's easy to orientate yourself, there's a little welcome-tourist-center close to the exit, a Starbucks, an Einstein Coffee another local bakery - so you definitely don't have to go hungry or thirsty there ;)...More

A great clean train station with loads of platforms and places to grab a coffee on the go. There are loads of notice boards to tell you what train to get on. Not much else to do here :)

The station was clean and organised, but constructions outside made my exit more challenging. If you find a flat path amongst the cobblestones, dragging luggage to your accommodation is not too bad, subject to how far you are comfortable to walk

Close to the center of town and easily accessible on foot, the station is efficient but if you need information finding the right person ain't easy. Some signposting is in order.

Walking with suitcases through Brugge isn't very easy due to the cobbled streets. Suggest you get a taxi or contact the hotel to see if there is a bus you can catch, as the buses go from right outside the station. We always... More
