We just have a distant look at this "diamond-shaped" structure from the other end of the port. Havenhuis was a nice sturcture built on the top and over the existing fire station. Worth to have a look and take photos with it but it was...More

This building is Iconic and is intended to be a landmark and it is a succes in all respects, Wonderfull to approach the building, and worth visiting the lobby which has an impressive "atrium" and an amazing satelite photo of the port, Todo

The Antwerp Havenhuis is just magnificent and an architectural marvel, as it was build on and over an existing former fire station. Just the technical stuff alone to get all that weight up there is worth the visit.

Antwerp's port is enormous and the Havenhuis is well to the north of the city. We could see it in the distance from MAAS but did not want to walk that far and it wasn't obvious how you would otherwise have reached it.

The "Havenhuis" is an architectural highlight, but it is almost impossible to reach it by car and to find a place to park your car. Use a bike to visit it!
