Zuid quarter in AntwerpThis district includes the southern part of the inner city between the Singel, the Amerikalei and the quays along the Scheldt. At the end of the 19th century a residential city area was built on the foundations of the Citadel. This is reflected in some of the remaining majestic mansions on the boulevards (‘Leien’) and some art nouveau treasures around the Royal Museum of Fine Arts (closed for renovation until 2018). The filled up South Docks are used as a parking area or as a square for events, but the Vlaamse- and Waalsekaai and the adjacent streets mainly attract people for their exclusive design and interior shops, trendy bars, restaurants and terraces. Other assets are the FotoMuseum, the Museum for Contemporary Art (M HKA), the Zuiderpershuis… The stairs of the ‘Butterfly Palace’ (the new Court of Law) reveal a magnificent view over the Antwerp Champs Elysées (the boulevards or ‘Leien’) or over the ambitious sustainable living project ‘Nieuw Zuid’, currently under construction.
