Antwerp city guide

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.

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.

Customer reviews

  • "Nice One"    
    The train is so clean and comfort. There is also a mini restaurant on the train for us in the second class to buy some food and drinks.  
  • "Fantastic"    
    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.  
  • "ok but..."    
    nowadays is quite ridiculous do not have free wi fi for every class ticket.  
  • "Well worth it"    
    I travelled first class and had a wonderful lunch wine, and a comfortable set and pleasant surroundings. (Antwerp to Paris)  
  • "space for luggage"    
    space for luggage is not quite enough  
  • "travel from Antwerpen to Paris"    
    the train journey was a very pleasant experience. I will definitely consider this form of travel on my next trip overseas  
  • "Aussie traveller"    
    Having travelled on the Thalys before I knew what to expect. Overall comfort and convenience was very good value. When booking however I only had limited choice of available tickets and had to purchase a more expensive fare than anticipated. I was able to use wifi on board but would have liked advice to set up account before actual travel. The code alone was not enough to access wifi and I needed to set up account first. Not being aware of this I wasted half the time setting up account and gaining access. This could be a good tip for future travellers.  
  • "Business travel made easy"    
    Very comfortable, access to the internet, and very helpful staff on board made it a very good journey. It is far better than air travel.  
  • "Good for business travel"    
    Very comfortable, and having access to the internet was a very big plus. It is a much better way to travel than dealing with airports.  
  • "Triple check"    
    Travel on the Thalys train was very good, pity the staff at Amsterdam rail station were not well informed. Two separate officials directed us to the wrong platform (Brussels train but not Thalys) and when we checked with the third rail station official on the platform she directed us to the correct platform, but we had to dash to make the train before the departure. Plenty of luggage space, comfortable seats, nice experience.
