KIMO International Board and Coordinators Meetings – Spring 2018
May 13 - May 15
Directions to the Atlas Hotel:
From BRUSSELS INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT :
- Taxi (approx. € 50,00 )
- Belgian Rail operates trains (2nd class: Single: €8,60; Weekend return: €14,60; 1st class: €10.30) every 15 min from the airport (Level -1) to Brussels’ three main stations, with most trains continuing to other parts of Belgium. The journey to the Central Station takes 15-20 minutes. Tickets can be bought from vending machines (coins or chip credits only) or the train ticket office (notes accepted) located in the airport train station at Level -1. The trains are clean and well-maintained. To enter or exit the train, push the green button on the door, as the doors are not automatically opened at the stations as they are in other systems.

- Alternatively, Brussels can be reached by train much more cheaply via Zaventem village (dorp) station, which is within easy walking distance from the airport. At €2,90, the fare is three times cheaper than the ticket from Brussels Airport Station to the city. This is because the expensive Diabolo Surcharge on airport trains does not apply here… In order to reach Zaventem dorp station from the airport (~25 min walk), go to the bus parking on level 0 and walk towards the end of it, where the airport bicycle lane starts. Follow the airport bicycle lane (marked in red) through the small car park and along the highway for about 700 metres until the first crosswalk at the roundabout. Cross the road to the left and walk into the street leading into the village (Vilvoordelaan). Keep going straight ahead for another 800 metres until you reach the railway station’s back entrance.

Whichever direction you are arriving from, follow signs to “Centre”. The closest best known monument is the BOURSE (Stock Exchange) located on a main boulevard called “Boulevard Anspach”.
From there take the main street (rue Orts) with a McDonald’s on its right, then Rue Dansaert.
