I'm planning to spend a day in Brussels and read on the Foundation's website that there is a coach/bus direct to the museum.
Does anyone know which hotel its supposed to pick passengers from?
Many thanks.Moderator Note:
It appears that there are some hotels which participate in a scheme in association with a tour company, where hotel guests can be provided with a coach service to the museum - thus it doesn't seem to be a regular service, with stops at specific hotels at scheduled time, but rather that the company will collect guests as and when they reserve a tour. So if you are only making a day trip, you may not qualify if you aren't staying at a hotel.
The coach company do list departure times, but as a reference for guests wishing to time their departure.
This service also only runs on three afternoons per week (Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays), and limits you to a two hour stay at the Museum, which is probably fine if you are a general tourist, taking in a number of sights, but may not be enough for the specialist, dedicated Hergé enthusiast for whom this is the central destination of a visit to Belgium.
be able to get the bus from the tour operator's premises, as noted here
, and here
, although the list of stops has been crossed out on that page. It doesn't appear on the tour company's page about the scheme
either, so it may have been withdrawn or cancelled; you might want to contact them and find out.
You will find information about other means of transport to the museum in this thread, if that is of any help.The Transportational Tintinologist Team
