Getting to stadium from Brussel-Central station

Recommended Posts

On a roll for stupid tourist questions tonight :)

Been trying to figure out the official travel site maps, and just cannot. So is there a single train/tram/bus from the train station (Central) or somewhere around Grand Place to the stadium? If not, what is the best combination of options? Thanks!

Where exactly do you stay in Brussels? As far as I know there is no direct line from Brussel Central to KB-stadium, but there is a direct metro (underground) to the stadium from Brussels South (Brussel Midi).
To get from Brussel Grand Place to Brussel Midi/South you can walk (1,5-2km), or you can take the metro from "Beurs/Bourse" to Brussel Midi:
https://www.google.be/maps/dir/Grote+Markt,+Brussel/Brussel-Zuid,+Avenue+Fonsny+47B,+1060+Brussel/@50.8418584,4.3369032,2703m/am=t/data=!3m2!1e3!4b1!4m15!4m14!1m5!1m1!1s0x47c3c47f4614f1f1:0xb03c355d8fe2cfb6!2m2!1d4.3524138!2d50.8467316!1m5!1m1!1s0x47c3c4e87f85c5b9:0xa3b206161a5f91a8!2m2!1d4.3347878!2d50.8364411!3e3!5i1

At Brussel Midi/South you have to take metro line 6 with direction "Koning Boudewijn". :

Don't forget: with your concert ticket you can have a free "event pass" for the metro at all ticket machines:

After the concert there will be extra metro services to Brussel Midi/South, so you won't have a problem to go back to the city centre!

Feel free to ask if you have further questions or if you need any tips, and enjoy your trip to Belgium and the concert! :-)

Thanks so much, Lobmans! I'll actually be staying very close to Central station/Grand Place, so your directions are perfect. Thank you as well for the "event pass" tip! Love that the metro includes a pass. More cities should do that to encourage use of public transport.
