Wiesbaden-Biebrich, Wiesbaden-Schierstein, Niederwalluf, Oestrich-Winkel, Assmannshausen, Voroux

New trip is underway, this time Frankfurt-Brussels by train and the flights to/from Stockholm
Arlanda Central
Grey and cold in Stockholm
No wonder people are trying to escape
Unfortunately, after the pandemic, the airport staff is unable to handle the increased passenger amount, which leads to long queues for the security control 
As a compensation for the long queue, I treat myself with a visit to the lounge

After arriving in Frankfurt, I stay the night in Mainz - in the morning I can see the blue sky and the sun

Mainz train station is seen from my hotel room window

At Wiesbaden I'm changing trains

My first photo stop is at Wiesbaden Biebrich

From Koblenz, I'm taking the long distance trains to Aachen
Having a beer at the SBB Eurocity 

SBB 2nd class car
Changing trains at Köln 
ICE train to Aachen

I'm staying one night in Aachen before continuing to Brussels

In the morning, I'm taking the Belgian train from Aachen


I was hoping to see some freight trains here in Belgium, but it seems that Sundays are not good days for trainspotting

So, I'll just spot the passenger trains on my way to the airport

Changing trains in Landen

My lunch

This was the only freight train I saw today from a train window

Belgian locomotive that is now also possible to view in Czechia

On my way to the airport, I'm taking the Intercity from Amsterdam

Brussels airport has a train station
I thought my Interrail ticket was valid here, but nope
I had to pay for a supplement

Bromma airport has now it's own tram station just outside the terminal
