Historic bike ride with a guide

You have never seen historic Antwerp like this: zoom from Het Steen to the MAS in no time and pop into the Beguinage. Sightseeing is so much more fun by bike. 

A bike is your best and fastest bet to get around the city. It’s amazing what you can do and see in such a short time and what’s more, cycling is fun, healthy and cheap! Travel along a fairly low-traffic route and see some of the historic highlights of various districts with your guide.
 
Naturally, you will cover the most important attractions, such as the Steen Fortress, the new MAS museum near the Napoleonic port docks, the Rubens’ House, Museum Plantin-Moretus and Grote Markt. But you will also be charmed by more picturesque spots such as the peaceful Beguinage and
the Elzenveld centre.
 
The trip takes you along: STEEN - ‘Eiland je’ (MAS) - BEGUINAGE - Rubens’ House - QUARTIER LATIN - VRIJDAGMARKT - GROTE MARKT.
 
It includes a short visit - if open to: the beguinage and the courtyard of the Museum Plantin (UNESCO world heritage).
 
Start and finish: Steenplein, near the slope of Zuiderterras. On request you can meet elsewhere.
 
The group leader should come equipped with a first aid kit and at least one fluorescent jacket.

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.
