“Very nice historian square”
Reviewed June 21, 2013 via mobile

Nice place to be, especially on a summernight...compared to Amsterdam this is nothing but for Antwerp it's fantastic. Other parts of Antwerp are very depressing and dirty but this is most definitely a very nice though small part of Antwerp! Would like to mention the very good restaurant castellino in front of the Hilton hotel! Try the fish lasagne and the tuna salad..very very recommendable!

“Always nice”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

Antwerp is the place to be in summer moths, enjoying the terraces with excellent Belgian beer or enjoying a nice wine with good food in one of the may restaurants. Pretty expensive tough.

“Antwerpen Groenplaats”
Reviewed March 21, 2013

The Groenplaats, literally "Green Place", is a beautiful historical testament to the culture and lifestyle of Antwerpen then and now. This medieval plaza, formerly the seat of a market (hence "green") is built on an open design, with a statue of Rubens, the city's great Renaissance painter, at its heart. Shops and bars which surround it are unique, quirky, and charming--Sals Cafe has reasonably priced cocktails and the Max Fritkot contains the World's Smallest Frite Museum on its top floor.

“Relax, drink and shop”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

It's always nice at the groenplaats! You can relax there, go to a café ( salscafé is the best for coctails ), ... and you have a beautiful view at the cathedral. In the winter there is a christmasmarket. You can easy go to groenplaats with metro. At groenplaats you can also shop very good ( there is the entrende of a shoppingcenter )
