“Worth seeing.”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

Worth seeing. Lots of restaurants - if you like pasta and pizza. Not much eating choices elsewhere unless you're into swarmas and burger king.

“Seeing the Sites!”
Reviewed August 30, 2013

We have been to this historic city at least a half a dozen times and we will always take time to walk the streets into the city square. Yes, you can go to the touristy shops ,however we go to enjoy the sites & sounds of the enjoyable city.

“worth the trip”
Reviewed August 29, 2013

Antwerp is a busy working city with several aspects to it that you can find almost anywhere - good high street with mix of chain and some specialist shops, but it has some other features which deserve seeking out. The central square here of the old town has some typical Flemish style buildings and fountain etc which whilst not as picturesque as Bruges or even Gent are still worth visiting.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed August 29, 2013

It is nice place to sit and enjoy the lovely buildings around. There are many events that take place here, when we were there was the cultural market, which it wasn't just tourists but also locals around.

“A great place to relax”
Reviewed August 29, 2013

Just less than 10 minutes walk from central station, it is a great 1st place to visit. It is nowhere near as crowded as the Grand Place in Brussels, and that makes it so relaxing. It is a great place to take in the architecture of the buildings. Our 4 year old loved the fountain and would play around it trying to see how close she could get before she got wet.
