Day trips from Brussels

Jump to last reply

At end of October we shall be in Brussels, and we have three free days.
We already have been in Belgium, so we visited Brussels, Ghent, Antwerp and Bruges.
We are interested to see beautiful architecture, picturesque streets, churches, castles.
We shall travel by train and we would like to do day trips, probably 3 trips.
I am not sure which of the below towns to visit (I have a list of 6 and need to select 3).
Can you please tell me your opinion about these places , which of them is more beautiful and interesting and can be visit in a short day trip (at end of October the days are short).

1. Aachen
2. Mechelen
3. Tervuren
4. Tournai
5. Liege
6. Maastricht

Maybe have you other suggestions about nice towns to be visited?

One more question: I see that in Belgium there are train tickets for seniors. If we are not from Belgium or from Europe, can we still buy those tickets?
