This summer, Belmond's famed Venice Simplon Orient-Express is traveling to Brussels for the first time. Journeys are available between Brussels and three of Europe's most coveted destinations - Venice, Vienna, and Budapest. Five new itineraries have been added to this season's timetable, and all pass through Belgium, a country rooted in luxury train travel.
Belgian-born Georges Nagelmackers changed the face of railway travel in Europe when he created the original 'Orient Express' train service in 1883, which ran from Paris to Vienna. Now, passengers can experience fine dining and personal steward service as highlights to stunning German, Austrian, and Swiss countryside views. Select excursions travel between Venice and London with a stopover in Brussels.
