Discover Train World

Train World is not just a museum. It is a universe that tingles all of your senses and gets you to know the world of the railways in all its guises. The objects are displayed in scene in an interesting way, the photographic, film and sound material take you to the atmosphere of a time gone by or take you to the train of the future. In addition, the site has also architecturally lot to offer. The high modern halls of glass, steel and concrete are impressive, and the historic railway station of Schaerbeek with the original counters, was restored to its full glory.

Entrance: Prinses-Elisabethplein 5 - 1030 Schaarbeek.

Discover Brussels and the Green Belt from the water (3h or 4h boat trip)

Welcome on board! We sail through a Brussels canal environment where a ‘Canal plan’ is in full progress, with completed new architecture and other projects under construction. Equally surprising are the Brussels port installations that penetrate deep into the city. Once passed Vilvoorde ‘Water Site’ nature takes the upper hand. We pass the rural Grimbergen, Kapelle-o/d-Bos and Zemst turn at the lock of Zemst.
