Can anyone tell me the distance between Gare du Midi and Gare du Nord in Brussels, Belgium. I have a map, but it doesn't include a scale, and I haven't been able to find a decent map with a scale on it.

I am guessing, based on the the distance that various hotels list to the two stations, that they can't be more than 3km apart.

Can anyone confirm?

Thanks,
Greg

I think that it is more than 3 km, probably it will be about 10-15 km but I am not 100% sure

Wrong! The distance between Gare du Midi and Gare du Nord is about 3 km, indeed! They're not that far from each other and well linked by tram or bus (in addition to the train, of course). There's also Gare Centrale between these two stations and this one is the closest to the main tourist attractions in Brussels. Many hotels mention both stations as reference because they're located somewhere between both. The Gare du Nord area is not the best part of the city so I wouldn't recommend you booking a hotel in that area.

How stupid, I took the wrong distance. As the table says it's obviously 2322 meter between gare du midi and gare du nord. Mercper is right!!!

Thank you mercper. Sadly I have already booked my hotel near Gare Du Nord, which I choose based on convience for leaving. Oh well, a little shadiness never hurt me.

And thanks for the map site, wouterrr. I tried mapquest, but it could not locate the stations. And google maps has not mapped Belgium yet.
