Hello, I am looking for the most pain-free way to get from Bruxelles Midi (Coming from London via St Pancras on the Eurostar) to the station "De Brouckère". I've noticed there are many options, such as:
Are both of these lines above ground or below ground? More importantly, which one would be easier to get to with plenty of luggage?
Secondly, I've noticed the negative impression about the presence of muggers and thieves at Gare Midi. Has any progress been made to stop such acts? How would Bruxelles Midi compare to a station such as Paris Nord in terms of these types of crimes. Due to the recent posts, I've become deeply concerned and will want to spend the less time at Gare Midi, and thus I ask which tram is easier to board and get away from the potential trouble spots.
