Antwerp – Belgium’s Port City
The stunning port city of Antwerp is Belgium’s second-largest city after Brussels. A centre of architecture and the arts, Antwerp attracts over 3.5 million overnight visitors. 14 million if you include day-trippers.
When it comes to impressive structures and buildings, it certainly doesn’t get much better than Antwerp. The city is overflowing with breathtaking architectural structures from a number of different time periods. The city’s importance stemmed in the 15th century when it became a centre of international trade. Even today, Antwerp is home to the second-largest port in all of Europe. The port certainly does make for quite the spectacular sight. But it’s a little more inland where you’ll discover the best of the city’s gems.
The grand 16th century Renaissance-style Stadhuis (City Hall) has been labelled a UNESCO World Heritage building. As is the Antwerp Cathedral of Our Lady. This ancient Gothic-Romanesque Church is one of the most unmissable attractions in the city. The interior of the cathedral is adorned with vibrant mosaic windows. As well as significant works by the Baroque painter Peter Paul Rubens, Jacob de Backer and Marten de Vos. But this isn’t the only one of Antwerp’s spectacular churches. There’s also the Roman Catholic Churches of St. Paul, St. James and St. Andrew. As well as the Jesuit Church of St. Charles Borromeo. Each just as beautiful as the next.
Another attraction that you simply can’t miss if you visit Antwerp is its Zoo. Opened in 1843, this is one of the oldest zoos in the entire world! The Antwerp zoo alone attracts an average of about 1.6 million visitors annually. The zoo is home to over 7,000 animals from over 950 different species. From tigers to penguins to koalas, they have it all.
Antwerp Walking Tour
There truly is no better way to discover a city than with a Guided Antwerp Walking Tour. Of course, exploring a city at your own pace is always a great option. But you miss out on some of those hidden gems. So how better to uncover the city’s secrets than with a local and knowledgeable guide?! Someone who knows the city like the back of their hand. Also, someone who can give you all the best tips and recommendations for making the most out of your stay! It’s one thing to visit the wonderful attractions a city has to offer. And it’s another thing to understand the fascinating tales and history behind them.
But an Antwerp Walking Tour isn’t the only way to discover this breathtaking city. Explore Antwerp in a new light (literally) with an Antwerp Bar Crawl. Experience the city’s wild night scene and visit some of the best venues in town. Not only will you enjoy a fun and unforgettable night, but you’ll also get to enjoy great benefits. From free shots to drink discounts and even free entry into the club, having a great night for an inexpensive price has never been easier!
Tours in Antwerp
The possibility of tours in Antwerp is endless. From Walking Tours that will explore the city’s most historic sights to Evening Tours that will explore the city’s more contemporary history such as its role in WW2. Or take the tour on wheels by operating Bike or Segway tours upon request. And if you really want to spice up the options, then an Antwerp Food Tour would be a great hit! Not only is it a unique way to explore the city, but participants also get to enjoy samplings of delicious local cuisine. Or go all out and even consider organising Boat Tours! When you’re home to the second biggest harbour in Europe, why not take advantage of it?
And of course, most importantly as with any tour is to offer Private Bookings. Providing tourists with customisable private tour packages encourages groups to book, wanting to avoid the swarms of other tourists. And this is in regards to all tours and activities, even pub crawls for those looking to celebrate special occasions.
