Hip & fun

Want to discover the <em>fashion must-sees</em> and hip lifestyle spots in the centre of Antwerp? Our guide will show you the coolest shopping addresses and the best-kept fashion secrets around the Grote Markt, the Quartier Latin and in the gilded Stadsfeestzaal shopping centre.&nbsp;

If you are interested in exploring the hip lifestyle spots in the centre of Antwerp without being inundated with historic dates and architectural styles, then this is the tour for you!
 
A relaxing and surprising city tour and some time to stop en route for some tasty snacks. A city guide will take you from the most beautiful spots near Grote Markt through the bustling fashion district and the elegant Quartier Latin to the beautifully renovated Festival Hall, which is now a fashionable and gilded shopping paradise.
 
Discover ancient alleys, beautiful squares, the elegant window displays of Antwerp’s fashion mavens, the glorious botanical garden and the huge, somewhat futuristic canopy of the remodelled Theaterplein.

A great deal of variety and lots of entertaining anecdotes. Moreover, your guide will let you choose from a range of possibilities for the perfect break! Will you have coffee in a chocolate salon? A typical beer on a sunny terrace? Tea with cake in the foyer of a charming old theatre? Or a hint of luxury with a glass of sparkling champagne or exotic cocktails in a sophisticated bar? You decide!
 
Wear appropriate shoes for this longer walk.
The information is always short and sweet.
Refreshments during the drinking stop are not included in the price.

The program can be reduced to a 2-hour walk. In that case, there will be no stop for refreshments and no visit to the Gallery of MoMu or Elzenveld. We therefore recommend the 3-hour program!
 
The trail takes you along: VLAEYKENSGANG - MODENATIE - KAMMENSTRAAT - ELZENVELD - THEATERPLEIN. It includes a short visit - if open to: The Gallery of the MoMu (Fashion Museum) and
the Festival Hall.

Zurenborg

Zurenborg

Zurenborg is quite possibly the most beautiful neighbourhood in Antwerp. It flaunts its belle époque grandeur like a coquettish lady. It proudly shows surprised visitors its art nouveau façades, elegant streets and squares. But the highlight is the 19th century Cogels-Osylei: sublime architecture from around the turn of the previous century.

Want to immerse yourself in the elegance of art nouveau without walking too long? Choose the shorter Zurenborg walking tour. It only passes through the Cogels-Osylei and a few side streets. Imagine how Antwerp’s bourgeoisie once strolled along these stately mansions and urban palaces. 

MAS | Museum aan de Stroom

MAS | Museum aan de Stroom

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.

Vlaeykensgang

Vlaeykensgang

The secret Vlaeykensgang alley dates from 1591 and connects Hoogstraat, Oude Koornmarkt Pelgrimstraat with one another. Walk through the gate at Oude Koornmarkt 16 and you feel as if you have journeyed back in time. In the past this alley was where the shoemakers and the poorest people in the city lived. The shoemakers were also in charge of sounding the alarm bell of the cathedral. These days you can find antiques stores and art galleries here as well as the exclusive restaurant Sir Anthony Van Dyck. The atmosphere is very intimate which is why many people also like to come here to listen to the carillon concerts during the summertime.
