We especially enjoyed the gorgeous Art Nouveau entrance hall of the train station. The rest of the station is modernized, with train platforms on three levels, but this hall and the main facade were wonderful. Probably the nicest train station of the entire trip.
We were a bit concerned about how we would get to our next stop, Amsterdam, as there were reports that the socialist rail union in Belgium was going to go on strike the next day, in solidarity with countries dealing with austerity measures. Did we make it to Amsterdam or not? Find out in the next installment. :)
