B-Excursion for schools and groups

Schools and groups (from 15 persons) with a B-Day trip ticket travel by rail even cheaper to Planckendael. You can book a B-Day trip for school groups directly via the online application form on thetrain.be (Belgian railways)  or by calling the NMBS Contact Center on 02-528 28 28 (7 days a week from 7 am to 9.30 pm). Reservations can be made until 12 working days before the desired travel date.

Worth noting: Reserved seats are provided to people who travel under the B-Day trip offer for groups. If among the passengers travelling with the group, some hold another type of ticket (e.g. because they already have a ZOO membership), they can of course join the group.  Plenty of seats are always available in the reserved carriages to make sure the whole group can comfortably travel together.
