I love how clean and organize this station is! Before leaving Antwerp, I even got there early and enjoyed one of the restaurants on the upper floor. I wish Toronto's station is this nice.

The Entrance hall with a vast dome above the waiting room of the station is really amazing. It is an amazing example of beautiful railway architecture. It is really a must see building when you are in Belgium.

Clean, huge but could do with clearer signage & more on the floor staff. Had to cue in 10+ minute lines for simple questions.
