ARCHE Consulting has offices in the picturesque Belgian cities of Ghent and Leuven. Both cities boast a rich cultural heritage and the vibrant atmosphere of a university town. They are easily accessible from the Brussels international airport.
Arrive in Brussels airport (Zaventem). The Brussels International Airport Company have extensive airport information (airport map, on-line departure/arrival information, car rental info, …).
Follow the signs to the train station: take the elevator to the lowest level where the train station is located. Two types of trains leave from the airport. One type has Brussels Midi (Zuid) station as end destination. Getting off at the end station gives you more time to switch to a train to Ghent than in Brussels North or Central station. Some other trains (destination De Panne or Oostende) go beyond Brussels Midi and pass through Ghent (no switching of trains in Brussels required). Only those trains which take 1h from the airport to Ghent are worth taking. With all the others it is more meaningful to get off at Brussels Midi and switch to a faster train (see below).
All trains with destination Oostende or Knokke-Blankenberge are OK (take an IC –Inter City– train, other types of trains make too frequent stops). Train ride to Ghent: ± 40mins. You need to get off at the Ghent St. Pieters train station. The easiest way is to take a taxi from here to our office.
For detailed information on Belgian train schedules: check the website of the Belgian Railways (NMBS/SNCB).
