CITY BREAKS IN ANTWERP


BOOK A SHORT BREAK OR LONG WEEKEND IN ANTWERP, BELGIUM’S HIDDEN DIAMOND.

There’s much more to Antwerp than meets the eye. Hidden among the medieval markets, Gothic cathedrals, Baroque masterpieces, Diamond District and international seaport lies the true Antwerp: a city that radiates coolness and class without even trying.

Discover Grote Markt, the medieval square where artists, architects, musicians, coffee enthusiasts, philosophy students and horse carriages gather. Here, you can feel the history around the iconic Brabo Fountain, guarded by guildhalls and the grand City Hall.

Above the Markt towers the spire of the Cathedral of Our Lady, one of Belgium’s greatest cathedrals that’s been looking over Antwerp since being completed in 1521. The cathedral houses a series of Rubens’ paintings, which are equally synonymous with the city.

From the cobbled heart of the city, follow the banks of the Scheldt river straight to the soul of the city: The Port of Antwerp. A strategic spot since the Middle Ages, the seaport has brought the whole world to Scheldt, transforming Antwerp into a great city.

The dockside neighbourhood, Eilandje, is home to popular Museum aan de Stroom (MAS) and a number of restaurants boasting beautiful views and diverse dishes: from local and tradition to innovative and experimental.

Stay in the heart of the town by beautiful Central Station at Radisson Blu Astrid Hotel, Antwerp – perfect for exploring everything this city has to offer.
