Antwerp Travel Guide

by our Belgium expert Conrad Freethy
Conrad FreethyAntwerp is undoubtedly one of Europe’s most attractive ‘commercial’ cities. A major trading centre since the 16th century, its fine harbour and the River Scheldt made it a vital shipping centre for Europe, the Americas, and the Indies and it is still a bustling international port. Its historic centre is the traffic-free Market Square with its splendid surrounding buildings and the landmark ‘Brabo’ statue. Van Dyke was born here and the city is a rich treasure house of art … though for real ‘richness’ there are diamonds. The world centre for the industry, there are four distinct diamond ‘bourses’ giving a whole new dimension to souvenir buying.
