The Central station is a must to see. Very well preserved and absolutely beautiful. It consists of different building styles and can only be appreciated.

The Station was so huge that you might get lost.....very nicely built.
Both impressive inside and out, the trains on 3 levels is most unusual, the sign posting could be improved, as got little confused while boarding the return train to Brussels..

I have photographed Antwerp station twice, arrived and departed there..it is indeed a real feat of engineering. One warning: international travellers beware of being spoken to by any 'shady-looking' characters...my unsuspecting Japanese husband was almost robbed!

Nice building. Station itself well organized. Not dirty.
If you travel, people working there can provide you with all information you need - ticket suiting your needs, planning your trip, etc.

This is the most beautiful railway station I have been to. no wonder, it is one of the top sights in Antwerp. From the staircase inside to the huge clock, it is wonderful. I pass by at least once or twice a month, and it is just a pleasure to walk through!

There is a lot pf place inside, and lots of shops along the tracks on most levels. At the very end, there are also diamond shopping block.
