BELGIUM: BY AIR
From the UK: carriers include Brussels Airlines, British Airways, Ryanair, EasyJet and Flybe.
From Europe: try Lufthansa, KLM, Swiss, TAP and Air France.
From the USA: United, Delta and American Airlines.
By train from the UK: Brussels International Rail station is the main hub, reachable by Eurostar.
The absolute best way to get around Belgium is by bike. Brussels and Antwerp have a municipal bike hire system, like those in London and Paris, and you can hire bikes individually in Ghent and Bruges. It’s a great way to see the city and is safe.
Otherwise, trams ply the streets of Antwerp and Brussels, and taxis and buses are frequent.
You can hire a car, but we recommend weekenders arrive by train to avoid parking nightmares. All 4 cities are easy to navigate on foot too.
