It is not only the buildings that have survived the test of time in Antwerp, the triangular Stadspark is all that remains of Fort Herentals, one of the forts that guarded the city in the 16th century. Not far from the city centre and the hustle and bustle of the shopping streets the park borders onto the Jewish neighbourhood.
During Rosh Hashanah, you will see the neighbourhood’s orthodox Jews cluster around the pond, throwing a piece of bread into the water, symbolically drowning the sins of the past year.

On sunny weekends Antwerpers gather at Nachtegalenpark, enjoying nature at its best.
Rivierenhof is one park that is busy, the 130 hectares of green welcomes those that are active or those who just like to watch those that are active! Walkers, cyclists, joggers, petanque players and fishing fanatics strut their stuff and tennis, basketball and miniature golf players battle it out on the courts.
