Antwerp is a real hidden gem of Europe. And not just because it’s the diamond trade capital of the world. It blends a lovingly preserved history with a vibrant, trendy nightlife and entertainment scene, as well as top-class shopping and fashion.

Antwerp Central Station

Widely celebrated as the finest example of railway architecture in Belgium, the station is so beautiful that the locals call it the Spoorwegkathedraal, meaning “Railway Cathedral”.

Grote Markt

If you like old buildings, then this is where to go first. Plus if you visit on a Sunday, you’ll be greeted with a small market in the square with locals selling everything from second-hand books to old cutlery.

Vlaeykensgang Alley

This historic Vlaeykensgang alley dates back to 1591 connecting Hoogstraat, Oude Koornmarkt Pelgrimstraat with one another.

Cathedral of Our Lady and Elfde Gebod

The 123-meter heavenward-reaching steeple of the Cathedral and the highest Gothic building in the Low Countries.

Saint Anna Tunnel

The escalators were made in the 1930s and were a novelty then and still are now. The beautiful woodwork is remarkably well preserved.

MAS – Museum aan de Stroom

Each level of the museum shows different collections—from power politics, world ports, food to exploring death. The MAS uniquely covered them all seamlessly through each floor.

The Rubens House (Rubenshuis)

Peter Paul Rubens’ house is now a museum that can be visited. It’s a grand historical site because the master painted many of his famous works here.

The Chocolate Line

The famous Chocolate Line’s Antwerp Branch is located in the old Palace on the Meir, in a beautifully restored setting that takes you back 200 years.
