Getting from Amsterdam to Lille is easy! On this train journey, you just need to change trains once, at Brussels (Midi/Zuid) station, after your arrival there from Amsterdam.
This journey of over 300 km from Netherlands to France takes just over 2:37 on high-speed trains. And as an added bonus, you’ll arrive in the city centre!
There are around 8 direct trains from Brussels to Lille on weekdays. They’ll take you to Lille Europe train station in around 35 minutes. One of 2 major railway stations in the city, Lille Europe is an international hub for Eurostar and TGV INOUI, so if your journey’s taking you further into France, this is the ideal starting point to do so.
Due to planned engineering works, the Intercity Netherlands (Brussels-Amsterdam) trains will be diverted via Roosendaal on Saturday 24 and Sunday 25 February 2024, resulting in longer journey times.
The stations Antwerpen-Centraal, Noorderkempen en Breda will not be served.
Passengers to/from Antwerp can board or alight in Antwerpen-Berchem. Passengers to/from Breda can change trains in Roosendaal and make use of other NS (Dutch railway) operated trains.
Please check the adapted schedules for your journey.
Due to planned engineering works in the Netherlands, the InterCity Netherlands trains (Brussels-Amsterdam) will be diverted between Rotterdam and Amsterdam via Gouda and Woerden from Monday 26 February to Friday 1 March 2024 included. As a consequence, they will not serve Schiphol-Airport.
Passengers to Schiphol-Airport and Amsterdam can change trains in Breda and use NS trains (Dutch Railways) to their final destination with their current ticket.
This only applies to northbound trains from Brussels to Amsterdam. Southbound trains to Brussels keep following their usual itinerary.
Please check the adapted schedules for your journey a few days before travel.
