Thalys Geography

Antwerp CentraalBecause of some unplanned problems with my travel, I spent an hour exploring Antwerp’s new central train station.

It’s spectacular: they took a stunningly beautiful building and somehow made it more beautiful and in many ways more functional.

Due to the renovations, starting Sunday the high speed Thalys train will no longer stop at some rinky-dink alternative Antwerp station, but will instead call at Antwerp Centraal, thus saving half an hour or more for travelers who wish to visit Antwerp. To make sure everybody knows about it, the station had several signs announcing the station change—signs that I found highly amusing.
