Belgium’s biggest port, Antwerp attracts everyone, from hard-core party goers to diamond dealers, from fashion moguls to art fanatics. The city has excellently preserved its medieval heart despite severe World War II bombing. Decorated streets full with cobblestones, quaint cafes, a riverside fortress and a truly magnificent cathedral, Antwerp remains one of Europe’s most important cities.

A city with an international reputation in the 15th and 16th century, Antwerp was reputed for its bustling port which accelerated the economic influx of the area. Today, it has cemented its position as a modern metropolis. Historic structures like the new Law Courts, the MAS museum or the Port Authority building glitter the city’s landscape. Yet, it still provides opportunities to just unwind and relax on a park bench and smell the roses

A delightful place for food-lovers, Antwerp is full of wonderful cafés and fine dining restaurants. The beautiful blend of traditional Flemish dishes with Mediterranean, French and vegetarian cuisines is note-worthy. The city is sprinkled with a vast variety of bars and places to drink. De Koninck, a light ale drunk in a small, stemmed glass is beloved by locals and tourists alike. The city has its own free news sheet, Zone 03, which tells all about events, exhibitions and concerts taking place. It is great to discover the vibrant and diverse cultural scene of Antwerp.

Visit the historical centre of the town, City Hall, which is surrounded by gorgeous medieval guild houses which can be found in most Flemish historical towns. A UNESCO World Heritage site, the city hall is a mesmerizing architectural example of Gothic and early Renaissance style. The Square lights up at night and brilliantly shines with a magical aura.

The area hosts the exciting Festival van Vlaanderen which features more than one hundred classical concerts performed all over the country. Belgium’s best world music festival, SFINKS is also organized outdoors in the suburb of Boechoutin the last week of July.

A haven for shopaholics, ModeNatie is a gigantic fashion complex which ambitiously incorporates styles from the Royal Academy of Fine Arts and the Flanders Fashion Institute. Surrounding a lavish atmosphere, part of the complex houses a fashion museum, MoMu. It displays all aspects of fashion, everything from the walking stick as a fashion statement to the evolution of the trench coat. Admire its adventurous and thought-provoking temporary displays.

The Antwerp Central Station is an architectural monument in itself and it provides easy transfers to other parts of the country like Ghent, Bruges, Ostend, Brussels and international transfers to Amsterdam and Paris. The tram network provided by De Lijn offers access to the city centre, suburbs and the Left Bank. There are 12 lines which includes a tunnel under the river and an underground section which is called the ‘premetro’.

Due to the city’s compact size, transfers by bicycle is an enjoyable and idyllic mode of transportation. There are many special paths for cyclists sprinkled all over the city.

The price slowly increases after the first 15 minutes which are free. You can also rent a bike at Ligfiets, Windroos, Fietsdokter or Fietshaven.
