Getting there

Train connections

The central station of Antwerp is the main gate to the city. It is well connected with high-speed lines. Amsterdam, Brussels, Lille, and Paris have direct high-speed connections. In Brussels, connections can be made with the high-speed lines to London, Cologne and Berlin.


Antwerp Airport (IATA: ANR): (10 min from the city center)
Brussels Airport (IATA: BRU): (30-45 min by train)
Amsterdam Airport (IATA: AMS): (55 min by high-speed train, 1,5h-2h regular trains )

NB the central train station has an IATA code: ZWE. With some airlines, this allows having the train station as a final destination as part of the total booking.
