The city’s main train station.
This huge train station took 10 years to build and opened for the first time in 1905. The Belgium architect Louis Delacenserie designed it, taking inspiration from almost everywhere, including Rome’s Pantheon. Consequently, the station is a mishmash of different styles.
Stand outside and admire the vast stone façade and the huge dome. Go inside the station and step into the 43 metre high train hall made of iron and glass.
You can travel to many places from the station’s 24 platforms, including the rest of Belgium but also cities in France, Germany, and the Netherlands.
