Take a stroll on Sint-Anneke Beach, explore the brand-new Droogdokkenpark or spot birds of prey in Wolvenberg. Here are some tips for an invigorating walk in the city.
Explore the brand-new Droogdokkenpark
Antwerp has a new hotspot! This 2-hectare park opened to the public in the autumn of 2018. It offers stunning views of the city’s skyline and is located along the river. Who will spot the biggest ship?

Feel the wind in your hair in the Eilandje neighbourhood
You can get to the Eilandje
in minutes with Tram 7 from the city centre. Gaze at the boats, enjoy a nice, brisk breeze and wave at the admiral and his wife on the roof of the MAS. End your walk around Bonapartedok with a photo at the Museum aan de Stroom and a cup of hot chocolate in Café Storm.
Hanzestedenplaats 5, 2000 Antwerp.
Enjoy your freedom on a bike
Can’t think where to go? Then rent a bike and check out different parks and neighbourhoods. Take a spin through Rivierenhof and stop for a coffee in Dageraadplaats. You’ll be free as a bird on a bike.
Build a snowman in a museum
Are you up for a walk but do you want to make it more of a cultural experience? Middelheim Museum
combines the best of both worlds, with a sculpture garden in the park. Can you think of any other museum where you can build a snowman or walk your dog?

Spot birds of prey in Wolvenberg
Wolvenberg is the only official nature area in Antwerp’s city centre. This park is located just a stone’s throw from Berchem’s station and was built on the remnants of Antwerp’s fortifications. The park is home to several birds of prey and protected species of snails. Bring a magnifying glass and some binoculars?
Main entrance on the corner of Singel and Posthofbrug, behind the station of Berchem.
Take a stroll on the beach at Sint Anneke
We all know that Barcelona has a beach. But did you know that you can also take a walk on the beach in Antwerp? Hop on a Velo to Linkeroever and save yourself the long drive to the seaside.
