Brussels-Zuid, Train Station in Brussels, Belgium

I believed it is good to share some train stations in Europe. Don't you know that one of the best way to explore Europe is traveling by train? I am introducing today Bruxelles-Midi or Brussel-Zuid, known in English as Brussels South. It is the biggest railway station in Brussels, the capital of Belgium. It is said that around a thousand trains pass between Brussels-South and Brussels-North railway stations everyday. Can you imagine how busy are these two train stations?

Brussels Midi or Zuid railway station was designed by Payen and was opened in 1869.

Some travel tips if you wish to explore any European cities by train;
Be sure to book your ticket as early as you can. Sometimes you can find cheap train tickets if you book it months earlier. You can already find cheap ones as early as 3 months before your plan travel. You can even save up to 50% cheaper when booking earlier.

Some images I took in Brussels-Zuid last August 2010. We traveled from Paris Gare Du Nord to this station. This is the train we boarded from Paris to Brussels South train station.

The tallest building in Belgium stands in front of the main exit from the station (the crossroad of Avenue Fonsnylaan and Rue Couverte/Overdekte straat) and is named the South Tower.
