Antwerp is easy to reach by train.
Internationally, high-speed trains provide direct links with different cities in France, the Netherlands and Germany. Antwerp can be reached from the UK by Eurostar (via Brussels). Antwerp's main station is Central Station.
Locally, Belgium has the most dense rail network in the world. Trains run at regular intervals between 6 a.m. and 8 p.m.; later in the evenings only a selection of trains run until about 11 p.m. Trains may run less frequently during the weekends and public holidays. There are first and second class compartments, and a standard return (round-trip) fare is double the price of a single (one-way) fare. Smoking is not allowed. A ticket is only valid for one day.
