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

It was just the first place I stayed in Europe. Oh Antwerp Port. It was magical, and a great economical site. There you're near to everything. Few steps forward and you will have everything you need. It's a great place for long walks, breath and relax, the scenic view is all you'll need to have a enjoyable trip. Don't forget... 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.

The our of the Port of Antwerp is really a great way to spend an afternoon. It was especially good for our family because we were accompanied by our friend and relative that used to work here. It was a beautiful sunny day and the harbour boat was very nice and clean.

We took the train from Brussels and walked all over Antwerp. We covered miles but are fit so it wasn't a problem at all. We walked from the train station to the port going through the city center and enjoying all the old buildings and shops. The city is known for it's diamond sales and there are plenty of stores...
