Final Destination: Anvers (Antwerpen)
Anvers is the French name for Antwerp/Antwerpen, so when looking at the departure board and info screens at Lille Flandres station, you need to look for the trains heading to Anvers.
All trains also call at: Mouscron; Kortrijk (connect for Ypres/Ieper)
1 x train per hour
Book early and save: No
Tickets can be booked online up to one month ahead, but they will cost the same if paid for at the station on the day of travel.
|Ticket Provider||Approximate Cost|
|NS Intl||from €29|
Note that these trains depart from Lille Flandres station and NOT from Lille Europe station.
You may have to change trains at Mouscron, despite joining a train that is apparently heading to Anvers via Gent.
These trains call first at Gent St-Pieters station (the main station in Gent) and then at Gent-Dampoort station.
This latter station is to the east of the heart of the city, closer to the city centre than St-Pieters.
