A private walking tour with personal local guide


Antwerp is the real urban deal. A refreshingly down-to-earth yet vivacious cosmopolitan habitat blessed with magnificent architecture, fashionable shop fronts, beer-washed pubs, dazzling monuments, jazzed-up clubs, inspired artworks and restaurant tables piled with plates of superb Belgian and multicultural food.

Antwerp is the home of the Flemish Baroque master Rubens, and not only has a wealth of outstanding museums, picturesque galleries, sculpted streets and beautiful architecture, but is also laced with refreshing greenery and urban haunts.

Itinerary

Much like the diamonds, Antwerp sparkles with an impressive range of architecture from medieval buildings to the Art Nouveau styles. Antwerp is a splendid city with most buildings dating from the 16th and 17th centuries. The past is also represented by the numerous paintings of Peter Paul Rubens who lived in Antwerp in the early 17th century. Three major paintings of his may be seen in the Cathedral of our Lady, a masterpiece of lace work in stone. Begun in 1352, it is one of the finest gothic buildings in Europe.

Moreover Antwerp is the diamond centre of the World. If diamonds really are a girl's best friend, then a lot of ladies will not leave out a visit to Antwerp's diamond district around the Railway Station. This area is also the Jewish part of the city.

Meeting Location + Tour Duration

Meeting location: Main hall of magnificent Grand Central Railway station

End location: Main Square, old Town

Duration: 3 hours

We start our leisure guided walk from the magnificent Grand Central Railway station; an impressive building built at the turn of the century. We then proceed to the Diamond district and Ruben's house (fee). We walk along the pedestrian shopping avenue (Meir) all the way to the Groenplaats square and the Cathedral of our Lady (fee). Last but not least we marvel the main square, the Brabo fountain, the Town Hall and the elegant guild houses.

A Recent Review of this tour

A very thorough day tour to Antwerp from Brussels. Johan was knowledgable and energetic and sensitive to our needs. Unfortunately, the weather the day we took the trip was a bit rough, but we made the best of it. I would recommend this tour without hesitation!
