Belgium: Antwerp Central and Liège-Guillemins once again in the top 10 most beautiful train stations in Europe and the world

  • News from UIC members
  • Stations and Intermodal Hubs

Last year the American magazine Newsweek ranked Antwerp Central the “world’s fourth most beautiful station”. This year, the Dutch website Stedentripper.com judged it the most beautiful station in Europe, with Liège in 7th position. The British journal Railway Terminal World on the other hand placed both Belgian stations in the world’s top 10. SNCB-Holding’s bold architectural choices have thus been recognised both by experts and the general public.

Just to remind you also that NextStation 2011 will be hosted by SNCB Holding in close collaboration with UIC.

Next Station has established itself as the reference forum for the discussion of all issues and experiences in connection with the development and management of stations across the world. The programme will include technical visits, one of which will be to the Belgian stations of Liège-Guillemins and Antwerp Central – internationally-renowned achievements.
