Day trip Train World & the neighbourhood

Day package Train World + walk through Schaerbeek's station district

Enjoy a full day of discoveries and grab your lunch at the museum brasserie RN Express or at the Train Bistro!

There are many hidden treasures in Schaerbeek. You can explore some of them during this day trip: the history of the train in Belgium as well as the art nouveau in the district of the Schaerbeek station. Here are two good reasons to book this exciting tour for your group or organisation! 

  • We offer you two outings in one on a limited distance!  You will be visiting Train World, one of Schaerbeek’s cultural spots and when you leave the museum you’ll discover hidden art nouveau gems. 
  • We offer you a fully guided day by our experts, who will have you hanging on their every word.

Program

The day begins with Train World, at the old railway station in Schaerbeek. Train World gathers in a place full of history not only the most precious locomotives and carriages of the Belgian Railway heritage, but also many unique objects and archives, photographs and films, all arranged in a spectacular scenography by the artist François Schuiten. One of our guides will make you relive the history of railways in Belgium during your visit.

At noon, you can lunch at the RN Express Brasserie (in the old railway station) or at Train Bistro (100 metres away from the museum). 

After lunch, a guide will take you for a walk around Schaerbeek's station district. During this walk you will learn more about Schaerbeek's impressive train station, its imposing boulevards and you will discover hidden art nouveau gems.
