Atypical Antwerp gifts in the pop-up store
An umbrella that changes design when it gets wet, a heat pack shaped like an Antwerp hand or candles that might have a diamond hidden in them. You can purchase original gifts in the Atypical Antwerp pop-up store in the Stadsfeestzaal. Each purchase entitles you to a free carrier bag and a ticket for the Ferris wheel, the winter slide or the ice rink.
The pop-up shop offers gifts that are not available anywhere else. They will be a real hit under the Christmas tree. These are just a few of the items on sale:
Antwerp Wantjes (mittens): new biscuits created by Philip's Biscuits
Powerbank in the shape of an Antwerp container
Diamond candle: there is a diamond inside 1 in 50 candles
Umbrella that changes colour when it rains
Heat pack in the shape of an Antwerp hand
Atypical Christmas tree decorations
Mug: a mug that changes design when you pour in a hot beverage
The limited-edition gifts all bear the A-logo or the Atypical Antwerp logo.
From 13/12 to 27/12
Prices: 5 to 25 euros

Tip: buy your tram or bus ticket in a point of pre-sale (newsagent’s, supermarket, the vending machines at the various stops or in the visitor centres of Visit Antwerp), where tickets are cheaper.
