The highlights of Antwerp


Antwerp is one of Europe's best kept secrets. It houses the second largest port in Europe, it is the world diamond capital and has a lot to offer for both the history lovers as well as the contemporary architecture enthusiasts.

During this tour I will show you the beautiful old city center. You will understand why our train station is consistently listed as one of the most beautiful in the world. Explore the stunning cathedral with its great works of art by Rubens and discover little hidden alleyways and squares. Learn about the golden age of Antwerp, its rich history and enjoy many stories of this incredible city.

By the end of the tour you will have explored Antwerp through the eyes of the local guide and understand why we love this city so much.

A Recent Review of this tour

As we had been to Antwerp a number of times before, Erwin guided us through some districts of Antwerp we agreed on beforehand and that are a bit off the beaten track (Zurenborg and Het Zuid). Erwin gave us lots of interesting information on the districts sights, history and significance for present day Antwerp. Erwin was very knowledgeable and informative without overwhelming us with information. He kept a comfortable pace and we stopped for a coffee break half way. We enjoyed the tour very much.
