Take a tour of the Scheldt and Antwerp’s port onboard the Flandria boats.<br />
A port tour is the perfect way to get to know Antwerp’s port, which is the second-largest port in Europe, better. Choose from a short or a long port tour. Or why not just enjoy the peace and quiet and the stunning view of Antwerp’s skyline and the river banks during your Scheldt tour.
You can buy drinks from the nice boat bar during the tour.
The port tours leave from Londonbrug while the Scheldt tour leaves from the pontoon in Steenplein.

City Card: true.
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.
