BRUXELLES - Postcrossing Meeting May 2015


Hello!

I decided to organise this meeting cause there is a postcrosser from UK, who is comming to Bruxelles for a few days. He would like to meet some of you?

SATURDAY 23 MAY 2015

For the moment there are not so many details...

- Central Station at 10am - in front of where we buy the train tickets & with big stairs in front

- Walking around looking for postcards. There is 2 ways, up to you to choose. These shop, museums do not have touristic cards
1 - Museum Tintin, Shop of all type of cards, Hema, Club...
2 - Museum Magritte, Museum of instruments, Museum Beaux arts, Royale Palace (i believe it's closed)...
Both groups meet at Grand Place to buy touristic cards

- Eating somewhere at city centre; 1pm (13h) at Roi de Espagne (Grand Place)

- Sign the postcards at the restaurant.

- The meeting lasts till the last one leave me or Helen! ;)

I would love to come to the meetup but I can't 100% confirm it will work, so for now I'd be a maybe.

I have one question though, I read about the Beglium Weekend ticket for public transportation costs of 22,20.
I have a question: does it count on every train or are there any exeptions? It would be so much cheaper for me to go on a train in Eupen and Belgium website said the train that goes there is an Intercity train. Those trains in Germany are not includet in a weekend ticket.
Would be great if anyone could help me out there.

It counts on every train. A weekend ticket is a ticket meant for going somewhere from 7pm fridays onwards and returning before the end of sunday. In your case, you just have to take one for Brussels (doesn't matter which station, it is all valid as Brussels is treated as a "zone" but Bruxelles-Central will be the easiest). It doesn't matter which train you take. Names like "intercity" are just used so you know if it's a train that stops between cities, if it only stops in cities, if it only runs during peak hours in the week, ... You can take whichever you want as long as it is heading for Brussels (and when returning: Eupen).

Is it already sure that there will be meeting cards or not? Just to know for the meet-up RR because I'm thinking to do it.

It is possible that a Postcrossing friend from Germany, kernfrucht, may be there too. If he definitely comes I will let you know.
