Eurostar & Intercity
It is easy to take the train from London to Luxembourg. You have a choice of two routes, one via Paris and the other via Brussels. Many travellers judge that the Brussels route has the edge. You avoid the change of stations in Paris and the route via Brussels includes some decent scenery as the train travels through the Ardennes region of Belgium.
The journey starts with a high-speed run on Eurostar from London to Brussels. That’s where you change onto an Intercity train for the onward journey to Luxembourg. The scenery on the journey from Brussels to Luxembourg becomes progressively more hilly.
London to Brussels
Board a Eurostar service from London St Pancras to Brussels. Little more than an hour after leaving London you’ll already be in northern France, speeding through Flanders fields towards Lille Europe, where many but not all Brussels-bound Eurostar trains make an intermediate stop. Some trains make up to three additional stops – at Ebbsfleet, Ashford and Calais.
Eurostar trains from London terminate at Brussels Midi station. Trains run every five minutes from Brussels Midi to Brussels Central (for the city centre). Your Eurostar ticket is valid for this short onward hop within Brussels. At Brussels Midi, there are good onward connections with a choice of Thalys or German ICE trains for direct links to Germany, as well as Belgian (or sometimes Dutch) Intercity trains to cities across the wider BeNeLux region.
Remember to factor in at least half an hour for Eurostar’s airline-style baggage check prior to boarding your train. This is a light-touch security scan, and there are no restrictions on taking liquids on board Eurostar trains.
Brussels to Luxembourg
Direct Intercity trains leave Brussels hourly for the 230-kilometre journey to Luxembourg. These trains start at Brussels Midi station and make four more stops in the Belgian capital, including one at Brussels Central which is very convenient for the Grand Place. In Luxembourg City the trains terminate at the main station, which is simply called Luxembourg.
The journey from Brussels Midi to Luxembourg takes 3 hrs 20 mins. Trains make anything from 7 to 13 intermediate stops along the way, so this is no high-speed dash. Sit back and just watch the countryside slip by beyond the window. Beyond Namur, where the train crosses the River Meuse, the route runs through the forested hills of the Ardennes.
