About Antwerp and Places to Visit
An important port in Belgium, Antwerp is a modern city with numerous attractions. The town was named after the mythical Roman soldier Silvius Brabo. A statue commemorates this mythical figure in the town square. Antwerp’s popular attractions include one of the most beautiful railway stations in the world, a large Gothic church and a 13th Century castle that once presided over the city and its powerful port. Buzzing with activity, Antwerp’s Diamond District is the workplace of diamond traders, cutters and polishers. Throughout Antwerp’s fusion of old and new can be experienced at The Grote Markt of Antwerp, a town square in the old city quarter with 16th Century guildhalls, buildings that were used by guilds for meetings and other purposes.
Each winter, the square is host to a seasonal Christmas market and ice rink. To experience one of the oldest places in the city, take a walk to the secret Vlaeykensgang alley. As you walk through the gate at Oude Koornmarkt 16, you will have a sense of having traveled back to the late 16th Century when this alley was the home of Antwerp’s shoemakers and cobblers.
Antwerp International Airport (EBAW) is located 2.9 nautical miles (5.4 km) south of the city center. Empty legs and transient aircraft are very popular in the region.
