Vilvoorde [1] is a city in the province of Flemish Brabant in Belgium.

Get in

Served by a good rail network, Vilvoorde station is only 10 mins from central Brussels and just over an hour from Charleroi. Brussels Airport, in nearby Zaventem, is about 7 kilometers outside Vilvoorde and easily reachable by bus.

Get around

Good bus service, cycle paths and easy to walk around.


A quiet, friendly place just to meander taking in the architecture, parks, shops & bars.


Some nice shops, but not really a 'shoppers' paradise. Lovely town to walk round with lots of green space. Increasingly popular for foreign visitors seeking private Medical treatment at the large AZ Jan Portaels Hospital.




Good Chinese restaurants. Famous horse-steak restaurants.


Huge variety of beers/lagers


Campanile Hotel, right next to Station. Eurovolleycenter, short bus/taxi journey from station.
