Antwerp


Antwerp is the capital of the Antwerp province in Flanders. Considered to be one of the most fascinating cities in Belgium, it is a must if you are planning to travel to the country.


Antwerp is one of the cultural and economic centres of Belgium. Although in its origins it was a fortified city, nothing remains of the citadel. However, there are still may historical sites for you to visit in this fascinating city. Dominated by the Cathedral of Our Lady, the Old part of Antwerp is a mandatory stop if you are staying in one of its hotels. You will be amazed with its unique architecture, its stepped-gable buildings and its Renaissance style Town Hall.

The main market square, also known as Grote, is one of the most popular attractions among tourists. It is also located in the Old Part of the city and its narrow cobbled streets packed with shops and tourists will enchant you. The statue of Brabo and the Giant’s Hand is located at the centre of the square and it is one of the most photographed monuments of the city. Antwerp canals are also a mandatory stop, since they are considered to be part of the heritage of the city. We specially recommend you to visit the Ruien museum in which you will learn about the history of Antwerp underground canal system. You should also visit some of the city’s most popular museums, such as the Museum of Contemporary Art, the Fashion Museum or the Middelheim Museum, an open air museum where you will have the opportunity of admiring some of the country’s traditional art. On the other hand, if you have booked your hotel in Antwerp you must not miss the famous Ruben’s House, which used to be the home of the renowed writer Sir Peter Paul Rubens.
