Station Brugge is the main railway station in Bruges, West Flanders, Belgium. The station opened on 12 August 1838 on the Lines 50A, 51 and 66. The current building has been in use since 1939. The station is one of the busiest in Belgium. Train services are operated by NMBS/SNCB. The railway arrived in Bruges in 1838 when the Ghent to Bruges railway was opened. In the first 6 years of its existence there was no station building, this opened in 1844, designed by Auguste Payen. In 2004 a modernisation and expansion of the station started. The tunnel under the platforms was expanded by 12 metres, allowing more space for passengers and small shops. The works were completed in May 2009.
