Its a very nice shopping street. With amazing historical buildings from the 19-20th century. But The shops all renovated with a modern interior.

I was a window shopper. Nevertheless I could see that this was one classy walk through Antwerpen. It just got better as the architecture became even more stunning from this historical city.

When I was here, there was a public holiday, so everything was closed. But I believe that this street is very lively and good spot if you want to do some shopping.

This is where locals go (window)shopping ; join them to feel Antwerp's heart beat. The buildings scream prosperity, dating back to profitable trading in Belgian Congo days. The Meir connects the old center (Groenplaats) with the diamond area around Centraal Station.
