Nice market square. Unfortunately, it was raining when we visited the market square. If not, it would be a perfect place to hang over and admiring the Brabo fountain.

Very beautiful space, which is not too touristy and there is plenty to fix your eyes upon. I think it is not as impressive as Brussels, however it is more enjoyable as it is more intimate and not as quiet.

The square is quite typical and the buildings are nice BUT the highlight of our visit was when we went there on Sunday. There's a pop up market at the square on Sunday selling all type of food, clothing, handmade jewellery and they even had a pop up Bar! There's also a public seating area and stage area set up...

The "Grote Markt" in Antwerp is so nice and it's kept very good. All the buildings are beautiful decorated with golden monuments on top. A lot of nice restaurants and bars are situated on the place. A must when you are in Antwerp

The central market square of Antwerp is easily accessed from both the main train station and the waterfront. The buildings are lovingly preserved and highlighted by the city's namesake statue.

Again, a very pretty square with imposing buildings such as you see in other Belgian cities. It was a nice day so it was very active

it is hard to put into words how massively impressive this building is- indeed, ALL of Antwerp's Centro Historico contains so many impeccably preserved old buildings, many dating to the 1500's/1600's well worth a visit if at all possible HOWEVER- a big word of warning- Antwerp is NO bargain, actually quite expensive in all things

In a country filled with Grote Markts...this is another beauty. It is centrally located in the old part of the city. Lots of interesting buildings and the Brado Fountain. Plenty of places to shop or to relax and have a bite to eat and something to drink!
