Tasty in Antwerp: Zurenborg

Zurenborg is quite possibly the most beautiful neighbourhood in Antwerp. It flaunts its belle époque grandeur like a coquettish lady. It proudly shows surprised visitors its art nouveau façades, elegant streets and squares. But the highlight is the 19th century Cogels-Osylei: sublime architecture from around the turn of the previous century.

Tasty in Antwerp: Het Zuid

Het Zuid is highly attractive to locals and visitors alike. You will find stately mansions, wide boulevards and beautiful squares there. Art lovers will appreciate the many art galleries and museums such as the FOMU | Photo Museum and M HKA | Museum of Contemporary Art Antwerp. Thanks to its many well-frequented cafés and restaurants, Het Zuid is also a very popular night spot.

Tasty in Antwerp: Theatre Area

The Theatre District owes its name to the many theatres here. This is the working habitat of many directors, actors, dancers and musicians: in the pubs you can almost hear the creativity bubbling away. It’s worth a visit during the day, too, because you’ll find many fashion, antique and interior design shops here, as well as two small but beautiful museums: the Maiden’s House Museum and the Museum Mayer van den Bergh.

Tasty in Antwerp: St. Andrew's

St. Andrew's was once known as ‘the Parish of Hardship’, but those days are long since passed. The Fashion Museum is the public face of the neighbourhood, and in the Nationalestraat and Kammenstraat area vintage clothing and haute couture go hand in hand. There’s always something going on in this district. And don’t miss Kloosterstraat, with its shops full of antique treasures and bric-a-brac.

Tasty in Antwerp: Historic centre

The old city centre is steeped in history. You will find it in ancient building-fronts on narrow streets or in the imposing Grand-Place. The Plantin-Moretus Museum is the only museum in the world to be classified as a Unesco World Heritage site. In the shadow of the Cathedral of Our Lady, the city teems with life in intimate pubs and restaurants. The banks of the Scheldt are a great place for a breath of fresh air.

Tasty in Antwerp: Eilandje

Het Eilandje – ‘The Little Island’ – is so-called for good reason: Antwerp’s oldest port area is surrounded by water. Today, port activity is more concentrated in the north, but the feeling of a port is still very much present. Savour the historical atmosphere of the old loading dock with its monumental warehouses, lanterns, hangars and cobblestones. Three major attractions, MAS | Museum aan de Stroom, the Red Star Line Museum and the Port House, have once again drawn attention to the links between the city and the water.

Tasty In Antwerp: Centraal Station

You encounter the whole world in this district of Antwerp – in the faces on the street and in shops, cafés and restaurants. From chic to ordinary, from historical to modern: this district has it all. At its heart is the majestic Central Station. Next to it is the Zoo – Antwerp’s most beautiful gardens. The diamond district is also nearby.

MAS from dawn till dusk

Climb up to the rooftop and gaze at the Belgian city that never sleeps. Spot the world-famous 'lights of the Scheldt' and watch the sunrise over Antwerp's skyline. MAS | Museum aan de Stroom is one of the many must-sees in the beautiful city of Antwerp.
