(i) The timetable is arranged so that the majority of connections at Bruxelles Midi/Zuid station, between the arrival of a Eurostar from London and the departure of an ICE on to Frankfurt (Main), are around 20 minutes

(ii) Security checks have now been introduced at Bruxelles-Midi in the part of the station used by the other international high speed trains.

How long it takes to pass through these security checks inevitably varies according to how busy the station is.

20 minutes should be enough time, but 15 minutes or less between the arrival time of the Eurostar and departure time of the ICE increases the risk of the missing the connection.

(iii) And this connection is not absolutley guaranteed – the ICE train on to Frankfurt (Main) won't usually hang back for more than 5 - 10mins, if the Eurostar from London is running late

(iv) You won’t have to buy new tickets/reservations, in the event of a Eurostar arriving too late in Brussels/Bruxelles to make the connection – but if you’d rather avoid having to change trains against the clock, alternative options are available.

Check the 'Ticket Information' for more details and what to do if you do happen to miss the connection at Bruxelles-MIdi station.
