Royal Waiting Room at Brussels-Central Railway Station

In tomorrow’s episode of ‘Reizen WaesTom Waes visits the Royal Waiting Room at Brussels-Central Railway Station (FBCL). Which is, as you can imagine, in the centre of Brussels.

Brussels-Central is a very busy station and not far from the Royal Palace. Construction started in the 1930s, but the station and the North-South connection, also known as Line 0, was completed in 1952. Its main architect was Victor Horta

FBCL has a Koninklijke Loge, Loge Royale or Royal Waiting Room. It’s very 1930s. Not that opulent at all.

Nowadays, Philippe, King of the Belgians usually travels by car or plane. His last train trip, to the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, departed from Brussels-Luxembourg Railway Station
