Are there any security checks at the station?

Security checks are the responsibility of the national authorities of each country and are subject to change at any time. To ensure comfortable boarding during your travel, we recommend that you arrive early at the station and ensure sufficient time before your train’s departure.


At Paris Nord, there are security gates at the entrance of the Thalys platforms. Before boarding the train, each passenger will have to cross these checkpoints and have his luggage scanned.

Belgian international railway stations

At international stations in Belgium (Brussels-South, Liège-Guillemins, Antwerp Central), police authorities and security agents may conduct random checks on passengers by asking them to walk through a security gate and may ask them to scan their luggage.

Germany and the Netherlands

Currently, there are no specific security arrangements at stations served by Thalys in the Netherlands and Germany.
