In the 16th century it was a home to baroque superstar artist Pieter Paul Rubens and today Antwerp’s top drawcards are its vibrant fashion, entertainment scene and startling architectural and cultural contrasts.

  1. Thank you for sharing this with us Agness. Antwerp is most certainly in my category of places I want to go back to. I inadvertently ended up there in 1993 and was glad I did. I fell in love with the city immediately and for me it far exceeded Brussels as a place I could live.

  2. Hi Agness, I haven’t been to Antwerp and I really enjoyed my virtual tour of the city through your lovely photos. I felt I was there with you. It’s certainly a city I can see myself enjoying a lot – beautiful architectures, cool, artsy, fun, great dining options, walkable, etc.

  3. God, all that cheese! One thing I definitely miss from Europe is good cheese. Great photos, the architecture in Antwerp looks beautiful!

    Lovely lovely photos! I hardly read travel blogs that mention about this place, the only times I see Antwerp is when reading football news! :D

    Beautiful photos, Agness, definitely put Antwerp on the list of places I want to visit someday, especially since it’s so close from home.

  6. The photographs are great especially with aspects of Belgian culture LOL! I have been to Brussels but I’ve never been to Antwerp. I know that a lot of travellers bypass Belgium, but I’ve always had good times there. I like the cobbled streets, the smallness of the country, and the lovely food. Yum!

  7. Beautiful pictures. One question, you visit so many different places, many of them with their own languages. The language difference doesn’t cause much problem during your travels? Or, maybe you are one of the gifted polyglots :)

    Such beautiful architecture and statues. Love the cobbled streets and history associated with European towns. So different than anything you would find in Australia. :)

  9. I really didn’t know that Antwerp is so beautiful. Thanks for the inspiration. We covered France, Italy and Spain in our last Euro Trip. I would be definitely adding this city to my Belgim trip and club it with Amsterdeam. Though its not related to this post, I really found your post on $25 helpful for our Euro Trip. We filled water bottles at fountains and ate Pizza near the grand cabal at Venice.
