The fountain itself is average, however it is the location on the Grote Markt with the buildings in the background that make for nice photo opportunities.
Have a look at this impressive monument. The brave Roman soldier Brabo is throwing the hand of the Giant Druoon Antigoon into the river Schelde. Thus freeing the ships from paying high taxes when entering the city. Try to find the hand .... of which the name Antwerpen (hand werpen = hand throwing) originates -)
Nothing special but it is a part of Antwerp, lkie de Meir, De Keyserlei, De Groenplaats etc... Although I prefer my native city Gent, which is more beautiful, cosy, nice and everything reachable on walking distance.
Very nice place to visit at the Grote markt. Read the interesting explanation about the name Antwerpen coming from "Hand werpen" meaning trowing the hand.
