Your guide will help you experience the heyday, downfall and resurrection of Antwerp’s diamond industry in the 19th century. Via the Central Station you’ll walk to the Diamond Square Mile – the home of diamond workers, jewellers and diamond merchants. In the diamond district bust merchants hurry through the streets – always on the way to their next transaction.
Get all you can out of Antwerp! Are you interested in exploring all of Antwerp? Then use the Antwerp City Card as your guide. The card will open the nicest, tastiest and most surprising doors of the city for you, for free or at a discount. What’s more, you can choose how long you want to use it.
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.
