Platforms at Rotterdam Centraal Station

The regular IC train from Rotterdam to Brussels typically departs from Platform 3 and 4 in Rotterdam. Leave time for a coffee - but remember to check my blogpost on BEST COFFEE AT THE STATION FIRST!!! 

From Rotterdam the train will call at - Dordrecht, Roosendaal (border between Netherlands and Belgium), Antwerp Central, Antwerp-Berchem, Mechelen. Then it makes a series of stops before you reach Midi. Many people alight at the incorrect spot here so be careful

Love that there is a kiosk on every platform - for all your sugar and coffee emergencies!
