    Take the train from Brussels to Rotterdam Centraal

    Take a train from Rotterdam to Leiden Centraal

    At Leiden Centraal you can buy a bus ticket combined with entrance ticket to Keukenhof.

    Don't know, check the Keukenhof website.

    Depending on your interests: you could continue your journey to Amsterdam and have a canal tour or whatever. In that case buy a ticket Brussel-Amsterdam which will allow you to stop at all stations on the way, e.g. Brussel-Rotterdam-Leiden-Amsterdam and v.v. (and separate the bus/entrance ticket Leiden-Keukenhof).

    And/or continue (same day or next day) to Zaanse Schans.

    http://www.zaanseschans.nl/

    Or any other city on the route just mentioned, e.g. Delft (where I live!), The Hague (Den Haag=in Dutch) etc. Your choice.

    For your info:

    Canal boat trips leave opposite the Amsterdam Centraal Station.

    I'm logging off now, if anything e-mail me but don't know if I could be of any help before you travel....

    Thank you, also,

    Best,

    Noel

    Yes, I see now.

    You are in bad luck...there are works in progress on the tracks between Antwerp and Roosendaal (The Netherlands). That means that somewhere along the route you will be transfered to a bus to Roosendaal where you can continue your journey to Rotterdam. Extra time: 1 hour!
