In this area you find lots of great restaurants and bars to spend a wonderful evening! It's a very vibrant and nice neighborhood. We have to wait till 2019 when the wonderful Museum of fine arts reopens. It's still possible to park your car for free on the docks near the Schelde or at the 'Waalse' and 'Vlaamse kaai'. Or...

After a long time of decline when the docks had been removed this location became the ideal place to live for artists and people with an alternative livestyle ... Bud today the lofts and old style buildings have been taken over by the "nouveau riche" with all the bars and restaurants suited for people with money to spend.

Antwerp isn't that large, so the south is well located. Circles with restaraunts and statues, clean, lots of transit, stores, and walking is safe. Buses and metro are a few stops away from most things on the list. I shouldn't be telling these good things since it's also not crowded

The south area is a lively area with specialty shops, great restaurants and pubs. We went here for a weekend and enjoyed the summer weather on the Marnixplein with coffee in the morning and cocktails in the evening. Except for the 1st weekend of the month, shops are closed on Sundays (also in the main shopping area around the Meir).

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
