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.
