Arriving at the Venue
SQUARE is ideally located in the historical and cultural heart of Brussels.
SQUARE very conveniently sits next door to the main transport hub of Brussels – the Central Station – where train, tram, metro and bus all meet. The fast train to the international Brussels Airport takes less than half an hour. For those visitors preferring to come by more sustainable means, we have a spot for cyclists and recharging facilities for electrical cars. Car drivers will find plenty of secured and covered parking facilities under SQUARE or close by.
There are two public car parks with over 1700 parking spaces. Parking Albertine is the closest car park and is situated underneath SQUARE with direct access to the venue from the inside. Both car parks are accessible 24H and both have recharging facilities for electric cars. For direct access from the car park, please go to level -3 and follow the directions to SQUARE. This route provides direct elevator access. A short walk away is the Grand Place car park which is conveniently placed midway between SQUARE and the UNESCO world Heritage site of the Grand Place…
Brussels Airport is a speedy 17 minutes by train from the Central Station, stopping at the European Institutions on the way. At peak times, 6 trains run every hour and from the Central Station, which is only three minutes walk to SQUARE.
