    Only have a comment about the train: you only need to buy tickets in advance for international trains in order to save money. Within the country, you can buy tickets at the last minute, the prices stay the same. One extra tip: leave for a weekend trip on Friday after 9 and you’ll be able to by a weekendticket, a return ticket that’s half the price, which let’s you return on Saturday or Sunday instead of the same day. Have fun travelling in Belgium!

      Hey Anke! Thank you for the note! Added a little snippet about the Weekend Ticket to the post 🙂

    I‘ve been living in Belgium for 4 years now and never bought a train ticket in advance. On busy commuting trains you might need to stand, but I have never heard that you need to get a first class ticket.

    Easiest option are the Go-Passes, 10 rides for each 5.30 or 8.80 (if you are above 26) for any destination you fancy. They can also be shared! Or for the weekend there is the weekend ticket, valid from Friday evening to Sunday night, where the return journey is for free.
    FlixBus is the cheapest way for international travels.
