Old-fashioned tunnel stretching about 600 meteres underwater connecting two parts of the city. The stairway from mid-20th century is an atttraction in itself. Watch the bikers pass by and enjoy the scenario to a perfect picture inside the tunnel.

A really long tunnel, with some impressive old escalators. In summer it's quite nice, since it's colder in the tunnel than outside. Beware of people on bikes flashing by!

What an art deco gem! Beautiful stairs and well maintained. Just don't take a fall in the middle of the tunnel as you won't know which direction to take after getting back up!

It's easy to reach on food from the Cathedral and the Square. It's worth the 5 minute walk to see it...and also to see the very old wooden escalator that is still in use. It's not a "must see", but is worth it if you have the time.

If you're biking around Antwerp, this is a fun diversion. Get the elevator down from the little square bounded by Sint Jansvliet, Ernest van Dijckaai, and Zand (it took me awhile to realize that). The LED above the elevator tells you where it is, beginning at around -30M and coming up to 0. The elevator is huge and fits quite a few bikes and pedestrians. Once on the tunnel level, you can bike right out of the elevator, through the tunnel, and back into the elevator on the other side. As others have said, there isn't much to see over there, but the biking is great. Go north along the greenery next to the river, and after a short while, turn left onto the protected bike path along Charles de Costerlaan. You'll be biking under a canopy of trees. Enjoy!
