Antwerp Half-Day Trip
Highlights / General details
Antwerp is Belgium’s 2nd largest city and Europe’s 2nd largest harbor. The city has preserved its historic character and many buildings remind us of its rich past. Above all, it is the city of RUBENS, the world famous master of the 17th century. We drive to the ancient fortress of the city. Here we start our walking tour along the “Meathouse” to the Market Square with its ancient houses and Our Lady’s Cathedral (entrance fee included). This cathedral boasts many treasures among which 4 of Rubens’ masterworks: “The Erection of and the Descent from the Cross, the Ascension of the Virgin and the Resurrection.” Some free time in the city center. Then by coach to the beginning of the port with its splendid new MAS-museum that has been opened. You have a splendid view from the 9th floor of the port, Europe’s 2nd largest. Also here you can have a look at the Diamonds of the Diamond Pavillon as Antwerp is the world’s diamond center. MAS is closed on Mondays. Free access to the Panorama. Return to Brussels by coach.
