It seems nothing has changed for centuries: very old buildings with gold paintings, bars/cafés that are untouched since a decade where you can hang out with a typical belgian beer,... Just the atmosphere is worth hanging around.

Grote Markt has something for everyone. You can literally spend hours just wandering through any type shop you can imagine, tasting chocolate or pastries, sipping wine or coffee at a cafe or looking at the wonderful architecture of the buildings. There really is so much history in this area you don't want to miss it.

Maybe because I am from Antwerp, but maybe it is the truth : the "Grote Markt" from Antwerp is the most beautiful from Belgium ! You cant' believe your eyes : our 450 years old town hall with all the beautiful flags, many old beautiful guild houses, Brabo monument with fountains, cozy cafés and restaurants with their terraces. Come and... More

So much history to take in. We were lucky to enjoy the free exhibition of the first 450 years of the grand building. It's worth going to the cafe upstairs to enjoy more of the architecture. In its day it must have cost a fortune. So much history to absorb and so old.

Antwerp is a fabulous city with the Grote Markt being at the center of it all. The architecture is simply amazing and the level of detail is stunning. Grab a seat at a nearby cafe and sit and take it all in. So lovely.

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.
