I am not a shopper but enjoyed strolling down this pedestrian street looking at the building facades. It is impressive how much specialized workmanship went into the design and decoration in those times. Beautiful!

When leaving Centraal, walk to your right and the large boulevard, De Keyserlei. Walk along this street and it will continue as The Meir. This street offers an array of shops, it is a shoppers paradise, but a bit upscale. Besides the shops, there are...More

This is a really luxurious street. The architecture alone is worth the effort! The buildings are amazing. If you have the money to spend that's great. But you don't have to, as just walking into the shops and browsing around is just as good!

Nothing special. Just a big street with many shops. There were no cars which is nice. But I wouldn't go back to Antwerp just for the shops at the meir.

The most popular shopping street in Antwerpen offers something for everyone, local or tourist. Nicely decorated at this time of year, clean, illuminated. Various shops and restaurants... As far as working hours goes all closing 18:00-18:30 and that is downside of the area.

We walked along the Meir as a part of our morning in Antwerp. I had looked up some information about the street and some of the buildings before coming, and we weren't disappointed. The houses along the street have varying architectural styles, which is somewhat...More

This is your typical shopping area. Nothing unique, just the same boutiques you’d find somewhere else

This is THE place to be for shopping in Antwerp. Shops are also open every first Sunday of the month. Large, wide, historical, pedestrian shopping street from the central train station to the historical center. All main commercial marks are represented. High end shoppers should...More
