    • Train ticket (Gent zone)

      Gent Oct 12, 2016 at 11:16 PM

      I have booked a train ticket online, from Gent-dampoort station to Brugge. The ticket reflects from: Gent-zone to: Brugge. Is it possible for me to use this ticket to board at Gent st pieters station instead of Gent-dampoort?

    • Brussels to Namur

      Belgium Oct 16, 2016 at 7:33 PM

      We will be staying at Crowne Plaza Brussels Le Palace. This is near Gare du Nord. We wish to travel by train to Namur. Will we be able to board train at Gare du Nord and travel to Namur without changing trains? If not, which train station should we depart from? Also, will we be able to buy tickets from a Machine? We are both over 65 and have never travelled by train in Belgium. Do we need to validate the ticket in a machine like France or write something on the back? I have spent much time looking at the NMBS/SNCB website and still confused. In other countries I have been assisted by helpful people at the station. I would like to be better prepared this time. Any tips or suggestions will be appreciated.

      Who were you?

      This is a long shot! Last July/August I asked for advice on this site for a suitable stop-over in Belgium. Someone suggested Durbuy and on his recommendation we booked a hotel there. We really, really loved it and had a fabulous few days there. I had never heard of the place before and was so glad to discover it.

      I intended thanking the person who made the suggestion but cannot find the post. I can find my post making the request and two replies but not the one suggesting Durbuy. It could have only been this site (Trip Advisor is the only other one I use.)

      Anyway, many thanks and - Durbuy is a lovely little town - a chateau, restaurants, pleasant shops, villagy atmosphere, river activities and the hotel we stayed in - Hotel Sanglier Des Ardennes, was great.

      What's going on there?

      Maybe the BeNeLux VT members can help me find an answer to this riddle: As I was touring the Ardenne river valleys last weekend, I was also trying to visit Durbuy. I did manage to enter the village, somewhat bewildered by the many cars that were parking well out of the place already. But then, as soon as I entered Durbuy -- boy, this IS a crowded place! Even though the houses looked very picturesque, I tried to get away from these masses as quickly as I could which proved difficult because there also was a first class traffic jam. What's the matter with this place? What makes it so popular that apparently all of Liege and half of Brussels plus a third of the Netherlands is squeezing into this tiny village???

      Are there still summer holidays in Belgium?

      definitely coming back, but during less popular times
