We came from Namur on a WWI pilgrimage. Namur was an unexpected high point in our trip. The Engineer museum was astonishing! Vincent as our guide was wonderful! We will go back! Have to go back! Please can we import him for our trip. The museum is only open on a Wednesday but we stayed the extra days to facilitate... More

A port of call on our cruise, Antwerp's port is a short walk away from the main shopping area. The port is easy to manouvre - just watch out for the cyclists! We visited the main cathedral, which was just stunning, before heading off to sample Belgian Hot Chocolate and buy some chocolates - well, it would have been rude... More

We had a 3 hour cruise of the port of Antwerp, the second biggest in Europe after Rotterdam. It is slightly interesting in the first 30 minutes and then becomes quite dull. How many containers with bananas can you keep on spotting? It must be fantastic if you are fond of tankers and cranes and I admit that they have... More

I have visited the Port of Antwerp many time in business and by now it feels very much home. A very important European port which is to consider as a gateway out and in. Port of Antwerp is the third biggest port in Europe after Hamburg and Rotterdam and many important shipping lines pass the port with all kind of... More

I enjoyed walking by the port, especially given my interest in shipping and the historical significance it represents here. I kinda walked by it quickly, and that's it. There isn't to much to do here, per se.

The Port area at Antwerp is not a pretty place. The area looks like it has not been touched for many years. There is some works underway but it looks like it will be many years until this becomes an interesting place to visit.

We walked to the port but you can also take public transport. The Museum Mas is an interesting building, moreover you can go up the escalators to reach the top floor with magnificient views of the city. Definitely well worth a visit.
