Hip & fun

Want to discover the fashion must-sees 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. 

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 Festival Hall.
