The train from Brussels will only stop at the main station in Bruges.

Note that this will be marked "Brugge" on the station nameboards, as you are in the Flemish speaking part of Belgium.

Hi,

To finish: Montovani ain't far from the train station, you can go walking (about 12 to 15 minutes). If you prefer a bus you can take (among others) nr. 41 or 42 and stop in Hoefijzerlaan. Schouwvegersstraat is a side street.

If you require directions upon arrival you can visit the small tourist office inside the train station. Opening hours:

- Monday - Friday: 10h00 - 17h00

- Saturday & Sunday: 10h00 - 14h00

Best regards,

Sabrina

Hi Gary,

Depends on traffic, but it shouldn't be more than 13 or 14 euro. It's about 5 to 10 minutes to get there.

You can find taxis in front of the train station, on the square, next to the buses.

Best regards,

Sabrina
