Strolling along the Meir

In Antwerp you can walk in a straight line from one cathedral to another. Strolling along shopping boulevards Meir and De Keyserlei, you walk from the Cathedral of Our Lady to the railway cathedral: Antwerp’s monumental Central Station. 

Did you know that in Antwerp you can walk from one cathedral to another past some of the best-known places in the city: the convivial Groenplaats, the Boerentoren skyscraper, Antwerp’s long shopping boulevard Meir and the bustling De Keyserlei?
 
During this walk your guide will take you from the Gothic Cathedral dedicated to the Virgin Mary
to Antwerp’s monumental Central Station, which is often referred to as the Railway Cathedral.
 
Architectural gems such as the recently restored royal palace ‘Paleis op de Meir’, sparkling window displays and the painters Rubens, Van Dyck and Teniers make for a varied walk. For centuries walking
along the Meir has been synonymous of a pleasant stroll.

You can choose to go in one of two directions on this walk: from west (Grote Markt) to east (Central Station) or from east to west.
 
This pleasant walk passes through large pedestrian zones and gives you a nice overview of the city centre. An excellent introduction to the city!

It includes a short visit - if open to: Antwerp’s Festival Hall and the hall of Central Station.
