Information about flights to Antwerp

The history of Antwerp goes back to the Middle Ages – but make no mistake, this is a vibrant, cosmopolitan and modern city. It acts as Belgium's biggest port and the second-largest city, and flights to Antwerp come into the international airport, a 20-minute drive away. The mix of old cobbled streets and the latest shops and restaurants make Antwerp a great place to see it all.

Sightseeing in Antwerp

Antwerp sits right on the River Scheldt, and is dotted with museums and galleries. Similar to UK cities, it has a cathedral – the 16th-century Cathedral of our Lady, which is claimed to still be unfinished. The famous painter Rubens was born here, with his work displayed at the Rubenshuis museum converted from his former home and studio. The city's largest museum is the Museum aan de Stroom, which is itself, made from Indian red sandstone and curved glass. The museum focuses on the history and growth of Antwerp and its status as an international port.

Food and drink

There's more to Belgian cuisine than chocolate, waffles and beer. Antwerp is on the Flemish side of the country, with specialities including steamed asparagus and croquettes. When dining at one of the city's many restaurants, you can seek advice on the best beer (or soft drink) to go with your meal.

Shopping

The city has gradually become the European hub of the diamond trade. It's estimated that, at one time, more than 80% of the world's diamonds passed through Antwerp during the refining process. Antwerp's Diamond Quarter covers roughly a square mile, incorporating close to 400 workshops. Buying a diamond here is a holiday in itself, as jewellers often give their customers VIP treatment. For lower-priced souvenirs and everyday essentials, try the Stadsfeestzaal. The centre is a renovated dance hall, with 40 shops over four levels. It's said that shopping in Antwerp is something of a local pastime, and the city is divided into shopping zones including the fashion quarter and the old town.
