The MAS is the most prominent place where the city and the port come together, both literally and figuratively. The 60 metre tall tower – a feat of daring architecture – has already become a new landmark in Antwerp. The MAS is focusing on the city’s diversity and reflecting on the many contacts between cultures, both past and present. The museum collection tells the story of the city, the port and the world. On the roof of the MAS, you can also enjoy panoramic views over Antwerp.
Antwerp ranks high on the list of gay-friendly cities, thanks to its extensive gay community whose gathering place is Het Roze Huis, a non-profit organisation that brings together more than 30 affiliated associations. But also thanks to the gay-friendly environment in Belgium: same-sex couples have been able to get married since 2003 and to adopt children since 2006.
Situated on the Grote Markt, the “stadswinkel” city shop offers the best of Antwerp: it is the ideal place for visitors looking for an original gift from Antwerp. There, you will find delicacies from the Antwerp area such as beer, coffee, the famous "Antwerp Hands" and Elixir d'Anvers. It also sells books, clothing collections, gadgets and merchandise from Antwerp ZOO, the University and museums.
