Are you looking for a romantic weekend away? Antwerp has all the ingredients for an original and romantic city trip.
You can easily find a quiet place to get together and enjoy each other's company. For example, the Beguinage
is a quiet, hidden spot in the city centre. It is an oasis of peace with a beautiful courtyard. Another unique place is the secret Vlaeykensgang
, a medieval alley in the heart of Antwerp.
Taste the atmosphere of the Eilandje - “the Little Island”, with its monumental warehouses and hangars. Walk along the marina and onto the panoramic roof of the MAS | Museum aan de Stroom
and enjoy the phenomenal view. Or take a romantic evening stroll along the Scheldt quays to view the lights of the Scheldt.
The Dageraadplaats is a cosy square with numerous cafés and a starry sky above. Conversely, the Hendrik Conscienceplein is a great place for those who prefer quiet squares. This picturesque square is the ideal backdrop for your romantic weekend away.
Antwerp is a city with many romantic green spots. Everyone has heard of the artist Pieter Paul Rubens, but did you know you can visit his garden in The Rubens House
? It's the perfect location for a romantic photo. The garden of Plantin-Moretus
also counts as a romantic spot to rest your legs.
A loving gesture
Give your loved one the surprise of her/his life while visiting the most important diamond centre of the world. The historical heart of Antwerp is where you will find DIVA
. The Antwerp Home of Diamonds: a unique place that looks at the enchanting world of diamonds, jewellery and precious metalworking.
And for chocolate fans, Chocolate Nation
is a brand new experience, and the largest chocolate museum in the world.
If you want to enjoy some romantic dining in Antwerp, book a table in a chapel (The Jane) or in the clouds with a view of the city ('t Zilte). Or enjoy the conviviality of one of the many charming restaurants in the historic centre. There’s something for everyone.
