Many airlines fly to Brussels International Airport Zaventem (BRU). Brussels Airport is 15 km away from our meeting place.
Metered taxicabs are available outside the Arrivals Hall. The fare to and from the centre of Brussels runs to about 45 €.
The train journey from the airport to the three main Brussels train stations will take about 15 min and cost you 8.60€. There is also a bus (Airport Line 12 – 21), the journey takes about 30 minutes and costs 4.50€ to 6€ (cheaper when bought at a ticket machine).
Low cost airlines fly to another airport, Brussels South Charleroi Airport (CRL). The name is a little deceiving, Charleroi is another city entirely, and the Charleroi Airport shuttle (+/- 14€) is an hour drive from Brussels Midi station
There are three main train stations in Brussels: Brussels Central, Brussels Midi/South/Zuid and Brussels North. While Brussels Central and North are the closest, Brussels South has a direct metro connection to stops Madou or Botanique, both within walking distance from the Hostel. More train information on Trainline and the national railway company SNCB/NMBS
In the tunnels which form a pentagon around Brussels, commonly called the “small ring”, exit at Porte de Schaerbeek or Rue de la Loi/Wetstraat exits. Madou roundabout is a confusing mess, avoid it at all cost.
Metered street parking near the meeting location can be found easily on a week-end. The nearest covered (paid) parking to the meeting location is BePark Botanique
