“A beuatiful surprise on your arrival”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2014

A fantastic building, liberty, in several floors, very easy to go around, well posted. Kind staff at the information office, they speak 3 languages. to the centre it's just 10 mins.walk. Full of diamonds jewelries around the area, but still very safe.

“One of the most beautiful buildingsf Europe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2014 via mobile

The Railway Station of Antwerp is one of the best well kept historic buildings of Europe.
As part of the Antwerp skyline the Railway Station remains an eye catcher for each visitor. For visitors by train a nice way to get to know the city by heart!

“Enormous light and airy space”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2014

A wonderful piece of architecture with trains running on several levels. Plenty of seating and the usual food etc. available. Easy to find trains as there are 24 hour departure timetables as well as current arrivals and departures.

“Beautiful Building”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2014

What a pleasure to see a beautiful historic building that is not a typical railway structure and that is so well maintained. Added to this is the fact that this is a busy working railway station that is well laid out and most importantly very well sign posted.

“Astounding multi-level marvel!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2014

I was blown away by the beauty of this train station. The old beautiful architecture contrasted with the clean modern lines of the new multilevel renovation is just genius.

Also loved the quirky touches of the kinetic powered charging stations :)

A must to visit.
