Car Parking at Beveren Railway Station

Hello good people on the Antwerp forum!

I'm heading over for a week's work in Antwerp from the UK and prefer to drive. I am quite used to driving in Belgium but don't fancy taking my car into Antwerpen Central for 4 nights due to the cost and the stress of finding where I am going.

So if I were to drive to Beveren and leave my car at the station, do you think it is safe/allowed or 4 nights?

Thank you!

Scott

I don't know this particular car park so can't answer re safety aspects, but there is no reason why you can't leave the car for 4 days: there is supposedly a rule that you can't leave a car on the public highway (street parking) for more than a week, but 4 days would be fine even there.

Actually, there are several good options, to leave your car.

You can follow the Highway->Breda, and take exit "Merksem/Metropolis".

Metropolis is a huge Cinema complex, about 500 meters from the Exit.

There you can leave your car, for free (and this one is guarded by dog patrol during the night) and take the Tram into town.

You can also take exit Antwerp-LO. (Linker Oever/Left Bank)

There is a big P&R, and from there you can take the tram into Antwerp City.

You can even drive all the way to "Schelde" @Linker Oever, leave your car, and go by food under the Schelde, you will arrive directly into Old town, very close to the Cathedral.

Several others, but it depend in what direction you need to go, @ Antwerp City.

;o))

On Linkeroever you can since few weeks only park your car for an hour. It is Blauwe Zone: you have to put up your card that displays your arriving time and have to leave on time. Only residents can park longer.

Hi Maenan and Flcrx, thank you for the additional information. I've had a look online and like the look of the Cinema complex parking even though it looks a little in the wrong direction for me, but in reality it probably isnt. I'm staying near the central Antwerp station.

I guess I'll flip a coin tomorrow between Beveren and Merksem. I'll update the thread when I return home so hopefully others can benefit from the info in the future.

Thanks again.

Hello

I live in Beveren so I know the place well. There is a big parking at the station where you can park your car. You don't have to pay for it. I think it's pretty save out there.

I hope I could help you!

So I did park at Beveren and everything was fine. Finding the town, parking and catching the train (18 mins to Antwerpen Central) was very easy and no stress whatsoever. I'd definitely recommend it if you don't fancy taking the car into the city.

Thank you to everyone who offered information on this thread.
