Visit us


In Maldegem, a charming city in Belgium near the border with the Netherlands, you will discover the largest Flemish collection of operational steam and diesel trains. Travel back in time to the good old days with the entire family!

We offer you steam and diesel locomotives on two different track widths and you have the possibility to take a seat in first, second and third class coaches. Or maybe you prefer a more luxurious and culinary  ride in a real Orient Express. In short, if you are looking for an original experience, Steam Train Maldegem-Eeklo is the place to be.


Steam train Maldegem-Eeklo is open for tourists from the beginning of May until the end of September. During this period, you can visit us on Sundays and on official Belgian holidays from 10:00 until 18:00.

During summer vacation (July and August) we are also open on Wednesdays from 10:00 until 17:00.

If you want to know when our steam and diesel trains ride, you can have a look at our time-tables.

Groups can also visit us outside the public opening season, but then you have to book in advance.
