Most beautiful station I know

A must see if you visit Antwerp! A beautiful old building, very well restored. Just enter to have a drink or eat Belgian wafels.

It is a perfect entanglement of an old historic building with great grandeur and modern additions. Clean, safe, beautiful.

Even though you are just passing by the railway station Antwerpen Central, you must admire the old station building with its staircase and decorations. The station is often used on films and TV, which is easy to understand. The fact that the platforms are situated on four different levels is another interesting feature with it.

Con grat of a perfect renovation and nominaded trainstation. The trainstation is so beautiful and very old. When you come up from the train and look up to the old building you have to take a pause and admire the old station. Look also at details , the modern part of the station with some old part here and there... More

We are shure you will find info & pictures about the Central Station in Antwerp, Belgium (North-East) by just googling it, Otherwise, as a habitant of Antwerp, i find the Station modern in one way, the practical way, but also charming in the other way: it is Art Nouveau to begin with!!! It is not a place to spend hours... More

Clean, well maintained station within walking distance of pretty much anything in Antwerp. Stop by the information booth near the exit for a good map of the city and some friendly advice on what to see or where to grab a beer or a meal.

A fantastic job was done to make this end-station in a through-station. Project leaders managed to keep the original looks, meanwhile making it to a very modern and up to date trainstation. It's worth to be visited if you come to our beautifull city

Very beautiful station, well worth going to see even if you have no reason to be at the station. Have a good look around inside and out.
