I love this landmark! It has quite a number of architecturally interesting buildings, the most impressive of which is the town hall. Also take a good look at the water-spouting Brabo statue.

A large square gives you ample space to discover and enjoy the flemish renaissance. The cathedral is within walking distance (3') and you'll find small alleys and streets all... More

Antwerp is rather neglected by tourists most of whom head to Brussels, Bruges and Ghent. Give Antwerp a chance it is a fascinating historic city with loads to see. Museums, art galleries etc.

We arrived here as a wedding was coming out- wonderful! At night the square is magical- so pretty. Look up at the gables and the statues (gold) on top of the houses
