If you want to have an idea on the past of Antwerp, take a look at the Vlaeykensgang. A place of complete rest in the hectic centre of the town. Enjoy the music on the carillon of the cathedral from there. Besides, some lovely restaurants can be found there !!!!!!

the Vlaeykansgang is a lovely spot to visit, where you can see the authenticity of Antwerp in the shadow of the cathedral.

De Vlaaikensgang in Antwerp is a small alley which you can walk through and have the feeling that you go back to the middle ages. It is close to to Grote Markt.

Any local will be able to tell you where to find this alley, preserved from years passed. During the summer months, the carillon of the Onze Lieve Vrouwe Cathethral are played every monday evening. If you want a quiet, pictoresque place to enjoy, this is the place to be. Since the locals take enjoying serious, there is to be no talking here...
There are a few restaurants located in the Vlaeykensgang, they are over priced and better quality for price can be found all around.

It's not easy to find, but the entrance is at the Oude koornmarkt number 16. It's a famous little street, very calm. There are a few restaurants, very cosy. It's not very spectacular but it's a nice break in the busy city.
