Good to walk and see the renovated Guild Houses

Nice walking area with the renovated and rebuild Guild houses. This area is located in the old town of Antwerp nearby De Steen museum and Brabo Statue.

Not all neighbourhoods in Antwerp are as nice or have a great atmosphere, but Zuid certainly bucks that trend. Known as the "classy" part of the city, this area certainly lives up its name with numerous galleries, museums, cafe's, bars and restaurants. Some really beautiful boulevards and buildings as well. A very safe neighbourhood which is clean and well manicured.... More

The Zuid is great area to in the south of Antwerpen, next to the river area. It is know because of restaurant area as well as upscale furniture store and surroundings. If you are looking for a place to eat lunch and/or dinner or vegan / belgian /italian / Spanish food in one place, this is one of the areas... More

This is the fashion district and all fancy shops, restaurant, bars, musea are supposed to be here. Also few shops opened on Sundays, which is uncommun in Belgium.

We walked in this area with family members and found the shops and the narrow streets very interesting. These shops & bars not the typical style as seen in North American. We worth the visit!

I noticed some of the other reviews of the South Area claim it is hipster territory. Well don't despair, you can appreciate, enjoy and be welcomed in this dynamic part of the city with or without facial hair or steampunk clothing. I visit here regularly because the atmosphere is great and there are many top quality and very varied restaurants... More

Try not to m,iss this area when you're visiting Antwerp! One trendy place after another, and the Fine Arts Museum (Museum voor Schone Kunsten) in the center, the latter should be an art lover's magnet once it fully reopens
