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.
