This is an interesting walk from the north bank to the south bank of the Schelde River through a tunnel. It doesn't take that long - it took me 15 minutes. On the other side you can get a great photo of the north bank...More

Antwerp is so full of pretty old buildings, amazing squares and other magnificent sights. But this tunnel and especially the wooden escalators from 1932 really touched a soft spot in my heart. At least try the escalators - it’s a must-do. If you have the...More

In 1932 two tunnels were dug under the Schelde river. One with two lanes for cars (looking a lot like New York's Lincoln Tunnel); the other for pedestrians and cyclists. It is really worth a visit: take the original wooden escalators that take you deep...More

It is not only interesting and historical but also impressive. A cheap must of the city not far from the cathedral.

The pedestrians' tunnel is an easy way to get from the left side of Antwerp to the right (or the other way of course). You walk underneath/through te river. You take the escalator down. These escalators will truly be the most beautiful ones you've ever...More

This pedestrians tunnel is fun just to have an experience walking under a river. Once on the left bank a short walk takes you to a free ferry boat trip back. The only pity was the locals on bicycles not adhering to the 5kph speed...More

A good walk through the tunnel - nice to see the old wooden escalators. Unusual way to visit either side of the river. Watch out for some errant cyclists though. Most are fine but there are some who think it is a racetrack!!
