Trains to Waterloo

The small town of Waterloo in central Belgium is most famous for being the site of the Battle of Waterloo, where Napoleon was defeated. SNCB trains arrive at Waterloo from nearby towns, as well as from Brussels-Midi (20 minutes) and Charleroi (45 minutes). Train travel in Belgium is fast, cheap and efficient. There are two stations in Waterloo: Gare de Waterloo and Gare de Braine-l'Alleud.

Which is the main train station in Waterloo?

The main station, Waterloo Railway Station (Gare de Waterloo), is situated to the west of the city center, on the edge of the Chenois district. This station is served by regional SNCB trains from Brussels-Midi, Charleroi and other towns. It is a fifteen-minute walk from both the center of Waterloo and from Waterloo underground station. A second railway station, Braine-l'Alleud, is located to the south of Waterloo close to the Mont-St-Jean district and is served by intercity trains from Brussels.

Which train companies offer trains to Waterloo?

Both regional and intercity (IC) trains to Waterloo are operated by SNCB, the national Belgian train operator and the country's most prevalent train provider. As well as the regional trains from nearby towns, SNCB operates train services to Waterloo from the major cities of Charleroi (45 minutes) and from Brussels-Midi (20 minutes).

Why travel by train to Waterloo?

Train travel is the cheapest and fastest way to reach Waterloo from Brussels or Charleroi. Trains to Waterloo run from Brussels-Midi, the capital's main southern city terminus and its busiest station. Direct trains run frequently in peak times and up to twice an hour throughout the rest of the day. Those traveling to visit the site of the famous Battle of Waterloo, however, will find a train to Braine-l'Alleud is the most convenient option.

Before you travel to Waterloo by train - good to know!

Although intercity trains are normally quicker, it is actually faster to take a direct regional train from Brussels to Waterloo than it is to take an intercity train, followed by a regional train with a change at Braine-L'Alleud. However, those who are simply traveling to the area to visit the site of the Battle of Waterloo are advised to alight at Braine-L'Alleud, as the battlefield and monuments are just a short bus journey from this station.
