The train journey from Aachen to Brussels was an extremely pleasant and environmentally friendly absorption that positively surprised me from start to finish, with a focus of comfort and mobility bread this journey a convincing alternative to car travel. One of the best features of the train journey was undoubtedly the fact that we could do without the use of a car. This not only meant less stress on the roads, but also a less bad impact on the environment. Instead of using fossil fuels, we used the electric powered trains, which contributed to significant reductions in CO2. This environmentally friendly choice was very important to me personally and gave me the feeling of making a small but significant contribution to climate protection. Another benefit of the trip was the absence of the tedious search for parking spaces the worry often associated with driving like finished away. Instead of the nerves of hunting for a parking space disappearing, we were able to sit back, relax and enjoy the journey. The train took us right into the centre of Brussels without having to worry about the logistics once we arrived. Finally, for the train journey to make financial sense the ticket prices drive extremely little compared to the cost of petrol motorway tolls and possibly parking fees the train bread thus a cost effective way to travel between these two cities. In summary, the Aachen Bus train journey was an extremely positive experience. The advantages in terms of environmental friendliness, convenience, stress freedom and economy make this travel option very attractive. By switching to the train, we were not only able to make our own journey more pleasant, but also take a small step towards sustainability. I can highly recommend this train connection between Aachen and Brussels and plan to choose this option again in the future. The only negative point was that I had to watch out for all trains arriving on time, so there was no problem in connecting. The wifi worked well and the cleanliness was nothing to complain about. Good seats and therefore a good comfort that you didn't want to miss.
