The journey between Ostend and Eupen is regular and perfectly comfortable. One of the busiest segments of the route is between Bruges and Brussels, a trip that takes just over an hour. The trains are fast, and allow you to see parts of the Belgian countryside that you wouldn't otherwise see if travelling by plane. Most of the trains operating on this route have two tiers, so sit on the top deck for the best views.
Eupen is a Belgian municipality, situated close to the German and Dutch borders. The city has a population of around 19,000, and is considered to be a Roman Catholic region.
