They still brew beer in the traditional manner in the ’t Pakhuis microbrewery in Antwerp’s Zuid district.
Microbrewery 't Pakhuis only uses natural ingredients, without filtration or pasteurisation. The brewery produces several unique beers thanks to the dedicated brewing process and the workmanship of the brewers.
Pop in to sample some beers or enjoy a nice meal with a small or large group. The menu features regional dishes, often using the brewery’s own beer as an ingredient. The suggestions are also often paired with the brewery’s beers. ’t Pakhuis offers a wide array of options for groups, from buffets to culinary menus with several courses.
Every day the brewery organises a tour in Dutch, French, English or German. This includes a sampling of the brewery’s beers. The tour lasts about 45 minutes.

City Card: true.
Step into the world of the legendary beer called “Bolleke” and discover the magic of a genuine Antwerp icon.
“There are so many beers today that the knowledge of the barkeeper has become very important.” On the sunny terrace of beer café ’t Waagstuk on the Stadswaag we meet beer connoisseur Hans Bombeke. Please don’t call him a zythologist or beer sommelier; he finds those fancy titles inappropriate. “For that you have to complete the corresponding studies” he says while smoking his pipe.
Antwerp is a vibrant city. And all those residents and visitors who bring so much life to the city also require a lot of parking for their cars. In order to give everyone an equal chance at a parking spot, there is paid parking in many places throughout Antwerp.

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.
