This is my favourite square in Belgium I preferred this square in Antwerp over the one in Brussels because it seemed much more relaxed and the architecture of the buildings is unbelievable, The views of the cathedral are brilliant from the Grote Markt as well.

Historical place not far away from the cathedral. Surrounded by historical buildings and the imposant town hall. Statue of Brabo is located in front of town hall. Many restaurants in neighbourhood.

Get an impression how Antwerp looked like in its best days. The square is surrounded by many old buildings. In the streets off the square you find a number of eateries.

There're many beautiful old buildings around this square and an interesting sculpture at the centre of the square. The Stadhuis (town hall) is on the west side of the square. From this square you can also see the stunning Cathedral of Our Lady.

I spent a lot of time in this place as was only a Ten bike ride from the huge dock where all the Car Carriers unload foreign cars. One of the trips was extra because the had live bands and tents set up with every conceivable food available. Beer tents games and much more. I have seen this place on... More

Standing at the square, you can image the long and dynamic history happened here dating back to the time the city hall was built. People coming and going, makes the historical site lively and vibrant.

Antwerp by night has definitely a charm you can't miss. Walking on a cloudless winter evening over the "Grote Markt" or the square in front of the beautiful restored mayors office, that you can visit (and should see) during the day. The market is surrounded by buildings dated to when Antwerp had its golden age, topped with the symbols of... More

We visited courtesy of a three day cruise from the UK. The Grote Markt is within a five minute walk of the docks, so we were soon right in th centre of things. This is a small but beautiful place and is easy to get round. The centre is the old hub and can easily be walked round although the... More
