. They do comparatively cheap
flights (around 60-80 euro each way, although fares can be anywhere
between 20 and 120 euro depending on dates) from Madrid to Cologne,
from where it would cost approximately 54 euro for a return train fare
on the Thalys to Brussels (http://b-rail.be
). Two hours for the
flight, three on the train.
That option could well work out cheaper than travelling the whole way
by bus or train. It's worth snooping around the site for the cheapest
day if you're flexible in your dates.
