Travel Tips for visiting Antwerpen

Antwerp (Antwerpen in Dutch) is the largest city in Flanders and the largest in Belgium after Brussels, with almost 500,000 inhabitants. The inhabitants are called Antwerpers, but they are also known as Sinjoren, from the Spanish Señor, which means important people. This is due to the fact that in the sixteenth century, Antwerp experienced a golden age. It was considered the most important city in the world, both culturally and economically. Many Antwerpites who lived like lords were nicknamed so by envious people. The name has stuck, and the people of Antwerp are proud of it. The city of Antwerp is worth a visit, that goes without saying! Second port in Europe after Rotterdam, city of art and culture, centre of the diamond trade: Antwerp is a city of traditions. Traditions, but with a certain taste for modernity. Above all, it is a dynamic city which, without squandering its heritage, is in the vanguard in many areas. The streets and alleys of the old town are lined with countless historic buildings, real architectural treasures. The banks of the Scheldt are perfect for a walk by day or night. Museums and churches abound. There are also plenty of shops, cafés and restaurants to delight the gourmet. The beer flows freely and the atmosphere is warm. The city has everything it takes to make it a top destination. Antwerp has more than one asset for the walker, and its various districts, whether posh or popular, picturesque or trendy, show the many faces of Flanders' first city. Antwerp has always attracted artists and intellectuals. It was the city of Rubens, Bruegel, Jordaens... It is still one of the most creative cities in the country and has been the birthplace of some of the leading figures in the Belgian rock scene, such as dEUS and Zita Swoon, as well as the controversial director Jan Fabre. Antwerp also enjoys an international reputation in the field of fashion. This is due in no small part to the Antwerp Six (Dries Van Noten, Ann Demeulemeester, Martin Margiela, Raf Simons, Dirk Bikkembergs and Walter Van Beirendonck), the six Antwerp designers who together conquered the catwalks of London and Paris ten years ago with their characteristically clean style and their very special vision of fashion. These designers and their successors have settled around the Nationalestraat, the former tailor's street, which has become a veritable paradise for beautiful clothes. Antwerp is, to say the least, a city on the move. Smaller than Brussels, it is also younger. Finally, for the more affluent, we would also like to remind you that Antwerp is THE world diamond centre with its 4 diamond exchanges.
