The Port House

Antwerp’s latest architectural jewel is the Port House. This funky and innovative building, with roots in the past, is the new headquarters of the Antwerp Port Authority that accommodates over 500 employees. You can also plan a guided tour of the building and enjoy the panoramic view over the port and the city.

At the Port House, the port of Antwerp’s past and future come together. The bottom part was once a fire station that was on the port’s outside edge. During renovation, this beautiful station was restored to its former glory. There is no clearer symbol of the immense growth of the port of Antwerp.

Together with a striking and contemporary superstructure in the shape of a diamond - a monumental design of the famous architect Zaha Hadid Architects - the building makes up the entire Port House. As such, it is a metaphor for the port of the 21st century: a port with a rich history that is ready to face the future head-on.

Want to take a look at this new landmark on the Antwerp skyline? Or would you prefer to admire the port and city from a breath-taking perspective? Pay a visit to the Port House and find out all about its wonderful architecture and operation. This is only possible during a guided group tour.

Address of the Port House:
Zaha Hadidplein 1, 2030 Antwerp

Public transport

Public transport

Antwerp is a pocket-sized city. Many of the attractions are within walking or biking distance of each other. Another way of getting around the city is on the trams and buses of De Lijn. 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.
