7 Places You Must See In Antwerp

Antwerp is one of the most exciting cities in the world. It has a seemingly endless amount of things to do and also carries with it a rich history directly tied in with why Belgium is an incredibly intricate, vast culture with a lot to offer. It’s been one of the most important places in Europe since the 16th century, having a position as one of the most essential ports for trade, commerce, and the overall economy of the continent. Being such a central hub, it also was very impacted by the events of both World Wars in the 20th century but lives on today as one of the most enduring cities in Europe.

Antwerp City Center Furnished Apartments
Antwerp City Center Furnished Apartments

In this list, we’re going to elaborate on 7 places you probably haven’t heard of in Antwerp that will surely make your trip one of the best you’ve ever had. When planning your next vacation to Antwerp through Pelican, be sure to check out these locations:

Antwerp Central Station

Even if you’re not traveling by train during your trip, going to the Antwerp Central Station is a must. There is an incredible building housing it and the architecture itself is worth the trip. There is also a remarkable ferris wheel outside that will give you entertainment but also a great view of the entire city from a very high height. This train station is also world-renowned and frequently listed as one of the best train stations in the world! Watch the multilevel platforms work like clockwork on the inside of one of the most notorious modern achievements of architecture.

Antwerp Zoo

As the oldest animal park in all of Belgium (and one of the oldest in the world), the Antwerp Zoo is an entertaining place for children of all ages. Since it opened on July 21st, 1843, it has housed an incredibly diverse selection of animals. Amazing lands such as the Vriesland (penguins), the Nocturama (aardvarks, tamanduas, sloths, etc.), and the Hippotopia (all kinds of hippos) will surely keep you entertained during your visit. Did you know in 1920 the Zoo also hosted the Summer Olympics boxing and wrestling events?

The Museum Plantin-Moretus

This may seem like a generic museum, but this UNESCO World Heritage Site is a historic artifact: in the 1800s it was a printing press, specifically one of the world’s oldest, and shows you great insight into one of the marvels of pre-industrialization that truly changed the way humans interact with each other. Not only does the museum document the history of Plantin-Moretus, it also shows you the inner workings of printing presses in general, giving you a lot of historical insight.

The Red Star Line Museum

Part of Belgium’s history is also the extensive migration that happened towards the US during the 20th century—this museum documents that, showing how the immigrants were able to reach Ellis Island through the Red Star Line ships. The museum is also located where the ships embarked, so you can get a true idea of where the Belgians were when they embarked on their journey. There is also a great retired chimney that is now an observation tower, which you can use to get a really wonderful view of the city.

Frites Atelier

Though a controversial issue, it is largely agreed upon that the origin of the beloved delicacy “french fries” was actually invented by the Belgians, and if there’s any place to give it a go it would be in Antwerp! There are many places to get your fix while on vacation, but the best place, hands-down, is Frites Atelier. Stop in for some fries, beer, and take in the edible delicacies that Antwerp’s culture offers!

The Cathedral of Our Lady

The Cathedral of Our Lady is another architectural site that must be seen in person to be believed. It took 169 years to build and it appears that it takes that much time as well to admire the detail that went into it. The interior is a shocking mixture of Baroque sensibilities and taking a look inside also shows you the intricacy in every detail, especially the pews!

Ruben’s House

The famous painter Pieter Paul Rubens remains one of the most important artistic figures of the 1600s, having had an influential line of work done at the beginning of the century. His house in Antwerp has been upkept and restored periodically since 1937 and currently represents a document of an artist’s process. It operated as his studio and living quarters and is now open to guests along with guided tours letting you learn more about the incredible artist and even see his beloved garden!
