Amsterdam-Rotterdam with IC NS trains. The new station in Rotterdam is looking fine!
|Rotterdam Centraal Station|
|Platforms at Rotterdam Centraal Station|
The regular IC train from Rotterdam to Brussels typically departs from Platform 3 and 4 in Rotterdam. Leave time for a coffee - but remember to check my blogpost on BEST COFFEE AT THE STATION FIRST!!!
From Rotterdam the train will call at - Dordrecht, Roosendaal (border between Netherlands and Belgium), Antwerp Central, Antwerp-Berchem, Mechelen. Then it makes a series of stops before you reach Midi. Many people alight at the incorrect spot here so be careful

|Love that there is a kiosk on every platform - for all your sugar and coffee emergencies!|

Once you arrive in Brussels Midi (Zuid) go to the Eurostar terminal

Another option is the Thalys train more about this later!
