“Nice vibe”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2014

Area that is crowned during evening. Place to take photos, stroll and have dinner, with dozens of restaurants option. Impressive guild houses and other attractions a few steps away, such the the Cathedral of our Lady. It is difficult to find places to park, but there are paid parking lots available in the area. staying in the city, this is an area you could go more than once.

“Christmas Market”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2014

Antwerp in December is a time for Christmas Markets and thats what we found in Grote Markt.

Even if it's not Christmas the location and buidlings make it a place to visit. A dusk it looked medieval. Well worth a trip.
