Antwerp City Guide
Once described as ‘the loveliest city in the world’, Antwerp has been on the radar for hundreds of years. Thought to have been founded in the 2nd or 3rd centuries, Antwerp really started to boom in the 12th century and its busy port has allowed it to prosper ever since. The city has had its dips and declines over the years, including knocks from the World Wars and the closing of the River Schedlt in the 17th to 19th centuries, which seriously affected its trading opportunities. Despite all that, modern Antwerp is the picture of beauty it always was, a city that continues to draw people in year upon year.
Antwerp is a sea of incredible architecture, all you have to do is take a walk around the Old Town to realise that. Grote Markt is the city’s town square, and a stroll through this will have you surrounded on all sides by Antwerp’s postcard-perfect buildings. The Stadhuis, or City Hall, is among the most impressive in the square – a grand hall covered in flags.
Other architectural highlights include Antwerp’s churches, such as Antwerp Cathedral, an immense Gothic structure. For your final fix, don’t forget to take a peek of Antwerp Central Station, a giant domed buildings that serves as a beautiful introduction to Antwerp for those arriving in the city by train.
Antwerp has a range of museums, one of the most popular being the Photography Museum, or FotoMuseum. Here you’ll find permanent and rotating photo exhibitions, both historical and fresh, new photo collections, a must for anyone who’s handy with a camera. Antwerp’s Museum aan de Stroom is also popular, and visitors should go even if they only to take a look at its cool, modern exterior.
Belgian food is a mix of a lot of different cuisines from this part of Europe, a delicious blend of French, Dutch, and German food. That said, Belgium still has its own distinctive flavors. Be sure to try some typical Belgian fries, some moules frites (mussels and fries), and snack on doughy, thick Belgian waffles or speculoos, which are Belgian cookies. Oh, and don’t forget all that infamous Belgian beer and chocolate – enjoy.
Antwerp’s tiny international airport only runs connection from London and Jersey, so it’s not the best option for people coming into Belgium from elsewhere. You’re much better off flying into Brussels, or even neighboring Germany or the Netherlands.
Tips for Travelers
Grab a coffee at the café on the top of the Museum aan de Stroom to get some free views over the harbor and some of the city.
To make the most of your time in Antwerp and save a bit of money, consider buying an Antwerp City Card. These cost from €19 for 24 hours up to €29 for 72 hours, and includes free entry to Antwerp’s museums, cathedral, and discounts on other attractions. Unfortunately, the card doesn’t include public transport, but Antwerp is very easy to get around by foot.
If you find that you do need to use public transport, it’s cheaper to buy tickets for the bus in advance. You can buy tickets or day passes at a few places, including selected metro stations or tourist offices.
