just walk around, enjoy the friendly atmosphere with green squares with terraces... try some bars and the nicest restaurants are also here... try café Zeezicht for eclectic and the restaurant Overvloed above for large portions for a very decent price.

Don't miss that small neighbourhood with beautiful, art nouveau buildings. You could spend hours just looking at all the details and the diversity of decoration!

This old market square was once the centre of Zurenborg (part of Berchem, Antwerp) and is now a lively well established place to meet friends, have a drink, go out for dinner and have a great time. It's alive and kicking and in the middle of a very attractive area with old beautifully built houses in the surrounding streets -... More

A great neighbourhood. Take all the time you have, to enjoy it - provided you're a Jugendstil fan. The Tramplein roundabout is a good place with several restaurants and terraces to be used as a starting point, and is served by street car line 11.

The Mabuhay bed and breakfast where I've slept was in this beautiful neighbourhood. This area has plenty of good restaurants and bars. Nice to have an evening walk.

this is the place to make a side trip away from the center for! The buildings and neighborhood are so well preserved it boggles the mind to think they almost demolished this area to build a new! thank god it was saved in time.

Zurenborg area is beautifully set out around a square where there are many restaurants and bars. The houses are amazing , with Art Nouveau stained glass windows and wrought iron and carved wood room dividers. The houses are all individual with window boxes and potted plants outside. Its easy to walk here from Central station.
