The popular party train taking travellers to the Belgian coast and back in 1 day takes a break
Luxembourg’s party train, relaying passengers to the Belgian coast and back in a single day, is to take a two-year break.
Luxembourg rail operator CFL confirmed the Luxembourg-Blankenberge Express will not run in the summers of 2017 and 2018 because of a number of projects on the Belgian network.
The link has been running on Sunday and holidays in July and August since 1978.
CFL further announced that trains will not circulate on line 50 (Luxembourg - Kleinbettingen - Arlon) during the summer of 2018, cutting the rail link between Luxembourg and the Belgian coast.
Alternatives are available: rail passengers wishing to explore Blankenberge can take a direct train from Luxembourg to Ostend and change at Bruges station. This connection will be available every Saturday, Sunday and public holiday from 1 July to 3 September.
