Private tour : City of Rubens Antwerp Half-Day from Brussels

After your driver and your guide will pick you up at the lobby of your hotel, enjoy a personalized private tour in Antwerpfrom Brussels.<br><br>Antwerp, Belgium’s second largest city, boasts one of the largest harbours in the world. The railway station is a stunning building. It is said to be the most beautiful railway station in the world. Our Lady Cathedral is the largest gothic church in the Low Countries and it countless invaluable paintings by world class artists of the 17th century. The absolute masterpieces, however, are the Rubens paintings. Our guided walk through the old city starts at the impressive 13th century castle that guarded the city and its port. We will take you to the gothic guild houses at the Market Square. The river Scheldt is the cradle of Antwerp where the city built the MAS-museum, famous for its spectacular views of the harbour and the old city. In your free time, do try the local beer called a ’ Bolleke’.

This is a relatively small garden with a number of different plants that would be growing, both in the garden and in the conservatory/orangery. However, January is not the best time to look for them! There are some sculptures and water features to keep one interested in the meantime. Well-kept, peaceful and many benches dotted around for visitors. I am sure it will be more interesting in summer. There is also a restaurant in the garden that looked busy, even at 4pm, so that may be worth a visit in the future when we return.

Went here around midday. Lovely flowers and the cactus garden is amazing! Some benches, so perfect to sit and relax for a while.

Small place but full of beautifull plants and sculptures. Amused specially with the humans walking into the soil.

These botanical gardens are especially beautiful in Summer, but they were a lovely sight to see in November as well. There wasn't as much diversity in colour since most of the flowers had already died, but the grass, the leaves of the trees, and the colourful plants in the greenhouse make this place worth visiting even in Winter! While I wouldn't say it's a must-see location, the gardens are charming and very centrally located, and offer some natural relief between the towering mansions and streets.
