Cologne to Brussels

We will be arriving from Rome to the Cologne airport and would like to take the train to Brussels, where our son lives. Is there an easy way from the airport to train station and what train would I take? I would really appreciate any help.

For details how to get from the airport to central station check the link on the right hand side under Top Questions about Cologne. It is very easy by taking the S13, and takes around 15-20 minutes.

From Cologne there is a regular train going directly to Brussels Midi via the Thalis.

For times go to


As starting point enter Cologne, and destination Brussel Midi. You might need to take a connection from Midi to wherever your son stays in Brussles.

Take an S13 train towards Köln Hansaring or an RE8 train towards Mönchengladbach to get to Cologne.
