Brugges from Paris by train or bus


I'm trying to go for a day to Bruges and I'm looking for the best way to get there.

My idea actually was to try to stay a couple of hours in Brussels and the heading to Bruges for the rest of the day.

Please let me know which is the best way to get there!


Kind regards

Best way is by train, but this means that from Paris you have to book the expensive Thalys - although as this only takes 1h22 from Paris-Nord to Bruxelles-Midi at least it makes a day trip possible (www.thalys.com).

You can go direct to Brugge from Gare du Midi, then when you return to Brussels, continue to Gare centrale which is close to the Grand' Place. Your Thalys ticket Brussels-Paris allows you to start on a local train from Gare centrale to Gare du Midi (Thalys only serves Midi), or you can take the underground tram from Bourse which is on the other side of the Grand' Place from Gare centrale.

Unless you can find an organised coach tour that goes straight there, you can't possibly do a day trip from Paris to Brugge by bus, it takes 4 hours just to get to Brussels (www.eurolines.com) and you would have to continue by train from there anyway.
