Antwerpen, a precious and gleaming city

Antwerpen, a precious and gleaming city !

Stylish and confident, the appeal of Belgium’s second city extends far beyond its gritty dockland heritage. Modern Antwerpen combines the glittery appeal of diamonds and high fashion with a medieval Old Town and a vibrant nightlife scene, proving that it is anything but boring.

About Benelux

If you like diamonds, Antwerpen will make you discover the diamond cutters’ district. You should also visit the museum of the sacrosanct little gleaming stone. Built between the 14th and the 16th century, the cathedral is dedicated to the Virgin Mary and its belfry is a Unesco listed monument.

Wow in front of the amazing facade of the Town Hall. This 16th century building is a incredible witness of the northern renaissance style.

And while you are here, admire the Brabo’s fountain. Wander around this old Grand-place area, laze in a terrace tasting a belgian beer, and find all the souvenir shops you are looking for. If you are with your kids, they will enjoy the eldest european zoo in the city centre (more than 5.000 animals!). Art lovers do not miss the Royal Fine Arts museum. Easily reached by train, you should also experience a tour of the city by boat, a nice and orignal way to explore Antwerpen.

Train Station(s)

Trains are a convenient way of reaching many towns and cities throughout Europe. The majority of cities in Europe have a minimum of one train station, while larger, more populated cities have two or more stations. Train stations, in general, are located in the heart of the city. Review the map below to get an idea of where the train station(s) in Antwerp can be found.

    Fantastic | Williams m. | 2013/11/14
    "I enjoyed so much the first class of Thalys. A very comfort train, the seat is nice, free wi-fi, electricity, and a large place to put our suitcases (I brought 2) right above so we can control the belongings any time. We also served by a beautiful crew with a high hospitality. Ups, almost forget, there was a very nice meals reserved already for lunch. Fantastic. "
