Antwerp has a lot to offer: a beautiful cathedral and numerous imposing churches, a magnificent Central Station, the ground-breaking Museum on the River (MAS), the tranquil Rubens House, a delightful sculpture garden (Middelheim), a zoo with a history and so much more. Antwerp is also Belgium’s fashion capital, home to many internationally renowned designers. That is why in the Scheldt city you will find dozens of exclusive boutiques, rubbing shoulders with fun bric-a-brac shops where you can browse for hours! Not surprisingly, the local ‘Antwerpenaars’ – who are fairly loud by nature – are extremely proud of their city.
There is a direct train connection between Bruges and Antwerp (journey time: ca. 1.30 hours).
