(JB) A day at the seaside is closer than you think thanks to the relaunch of a popular party train delivering revellers to the Belgian coast.

The Blankenberge Express summer service returns offering travellers in Luxembourg and Belgium a fun way to enjoy a day out at the quaint Belgian seaside resort.

From July 17, a train will leave Luxembourg every Sunday at 7.02am, on a four-hour journey, stopping off at Kleinbettingen, Arlon and Bruge before reaching the coast.

Anyone planning a pre-beach nap on the train may be disappointed. The Blankenberge Express is known for its party atmosphere, with loud music, dancing and a non-stop bar.

After a full day at the seaside residents should be careful not to miss the only return train, which leaves Blankenberge at 6.09pm and returns to Luxembourg at around 10.01pm. During the outgoing journey, passengers will receive a croissant and drink, which are included in the ticket price.

Passengers wishing to take up the offer must book in advance as tickets will not be sold on the day.

Blankenberge Express tickets can be purchased at CFL stations in Luxembourg City, Ettelbrück, Esch-sur-Alzette, Belval University and Wasserbillig.

The service runs until August 28.

For information, call 24 89 24 89.
