Train from airport
The easiest (as not dependent on traffic) way to get into Brussels is by train: when leaving the arrival area gate, go right towards the staircase, the train station is on the bottom floor. Take the train to Brussels Nord (blue circle), then, it's 9 min walk (850m).
Train tickets can be purchased on the ticket machines at the entrance to the station. If you want to skip the queues, use the SNCB/ NMBS app that you can download on to your smartphone. Please note it takes a moment to purchase the ticket, so best to do it at home.
