Dear Poppop,

I am also going to be spending not enough hours in Antwerp and looking around on the internet I have shortlisted the following as must-sees:

Diamond Museum

Middelheim Museum

MOMU (Mode Museum

Grote Markt and Cathedral of Our Lady

't Kantwinkeltje at Handschoenmarkt 12

If I had enough time Ruien (Canals)

I hope you have a lovely visit.I look forward to reading any trip reports you may care to write on Trip Advisor.

I think you must see Meir (shopping street with many historic building), than to the Grote Markt and the Cathedral. And maybe 't Eilandje (it is in the northern part of Antwerp). You can see many lovely things over there. Napoleon Bonaparte build there 2 docks for ships.

There is a good website of Eilandje. You can visit it over here http://www.antwerpseilandje.be

Maybe you can find some inspiration for your short stay :)

Alternative shops: Kammenstraat

Designer wear: Nationalestraat

Walk by the Schelde

Wander through 't Zuid with its antique shops, many bars and restaurants and museums MoMu and KMSKA.

Go to Zurenborg (Bertem) to look at the beautiful mansions and have a burger at... Darn I forgot the name, but you can't miss it:)

Will you be there in Summer? Because then there's Summer of Antwerp: a summer-long festival with lots of outdoor activities.

8 things u must see in Antwerpen (within 8 hours)

1.Centraal Station

2. Meir (Shopping avenue)

3.Groenmarket + Rubens statue


5.Grootmarket (City Hall + Barbo statue & Turism office)

6. The side walk of the river Schelde + Castle

7.Rubens House

8.MAS (Museum)

Note: The Middleheim Museum is awesome and definetly worth the visit,but its outside of the center of the city and it´s a huge open air museum that takes at least 3 or 4 hours to look at.Since u just have 8 hours i recomend u the MAS insted.
