Go back in time and discover the old street pattern of the city. Listen to the clocks of the Cathedral and stroll around.

That`s the smallest street of Antwerp. You only can go there by foot. It is a really nice an small "street". If you are in Antwerp you should walk through this lovely "street".

This tiny alley in the center of town is a must see for every tourist. It only takes 10 minutes to stroll through it so it is definitely not a waste of time

Find the Vlaeykensgang, a small but beautiful alley in the center of Antwerp and get a glimpse of authentic medieval times :)

One of the oldest little streets in Antwerp. The restauration is done by one of the famous Antique dealer in the world Axel Vervoordt. You must see this.
