Gare centrale


Gare de Bruxelles Central, or in English the Brussels Central train station was opened in 1952. Initially designed by the famous Belgian architect Victor Horta it was Maxime Brunfaut who finished it according to his plans after he died in 1947. With 140 000 daily passengers it is the busiest of all railway stations in Brussels.
