The historic centre is an exceptional concentration of art and culture on a few square feet. Within a stone’s throw of the Scheldt and Antwerp’s castle, the Steen, on top of his fountain, Brabo overlooks the Grote Markt and its imposing city hall, surrounded by magnificent guild houses. Walking through the narrow streets you will discover the Cathedral of Our Lady on the Groenplaats or the Hendrik Conscience square with the baroque Saint Charles Borromeo’s church. Enjoy a typical Bolleke De Koninck beer in one of the authentic brown cafés, browse through the gift shops or go shopping on a Sunday in the traffic-free Hoogstraat. There are enough terraces and restaurants to meet your culinary expectations!
