Part 3-Auto World, Schumann, Belgium

Brussels Airport is located just 2 kms from the hotel where we stayed and free shuttle service was provided every 30 mins. From the airport,a metro rail facility is available for Schumann costing 5 euros.

Ticket cost for the Auto World museum (with photography)- 10 euros, without photography-7 euros.

Get ready for the ride of your lifetime.
