Antwerp

This morning we arrive in Antwerp - Belgium’s biggest port, positioned on the River Sheltz with a large harbour linking to the sea. As Belgium’s second largest city, it has been pivotal in the country’s history of occupations and conquests. Home to the famous Baroque artist Pieter Paul Rubens, it attracts art lovers and diamond dealers from all over the world. Having been decimated during WWII, today the city is modern and organised, yet still retains an intriguing medieval heart. Enjoy the guided walking tour of the city centre, passing by  its café-filled cobbled lanes, admiring the Renaissance Town Hall and the unique Gothic Cathedral of Our Lady, the symbol of Antwerp before passing through the charming 16th century inner yard, the ‘Vlaeykensgang’.

*** Please note, you can only choose either included tour of Antwerp or the DiscoverMORE option, as both tours run at the same time.

You will be amazed by all the different architecture found in the city, ranging from Roman excavations to the modern design of the Bonnefantenmuseum. Alternatively, join a guided bike tour in Maastricht.
