The building is welcoming and impressive on arrival. It is the most beautiful train station I have visited. In terms of operations, they could have better signage to guide you to tracks 1-6.

We arrived in from the Eurostar, and although we had read about the station spanning three levels and being a metre higher than the cathedral, it was well worth seeing. Having been to Grand Central in NYC, I would say from what we saw this...More

Even if you are passing through on the train, you should get off and take the time to see this. The main building is very impressive.

It's probably the best place to see in Antwerp. Really beautiful architecture and decoration. I would expect something like that in Italy instead it's here. A masterpiece to visit if in the town.

A lot of people travel through this station without knowing that they are actually passing by one the most beautiful train stations in the world. The old station, which used to be a dead-end with a huge hall dating from the coal trains era was...More

Thanks to a friend, we could visit the tunnel below and the gangway in the roof of the railway station. One word: fantastic

Walking from the Grote Markt via de Meir to Antwerp Zoo, you will find Centraal Station next to it. Walk through for half an hour and marvel at this splendid building, built in an era when stations were not simply utilitarian.

Yes you can storage your luggage. Prices begin from 4.50 euros for 24 hours and rising, depends on the size of your luggage. And as mentioned above, you can easily spot the place in Antwerp station..

Hi, I will be visiting Antwerp for a few hours next week and wanted to know the size of the baggage lockers. As I understand there are two sizes but I'm not able to find the dimensions. I am carrying a big bag and don't want to drag it around the city. I will be going to Ghent in the evening. As I understand there is no manned left luggage facility at Antwerp Centraal.

There are different sizes of lockers. I'd say an XL luggage would fit.
