It's big, splashy and grand. I love the golden statues on the peaks of the buildings. I never tired of walking through it.

Also, great restaurants and places to grab a bite or a beer. Love this city so much! We always walk the entire length of this area and shop.

Very nice to walk, to take pictures. The view is incredible. Not very crowdy with the tourists. I just love those tiny houses.

Fine collection of guild houses from the 16th century, the Golden Age of Antwerp. City Hall, Brabo fountain, the Tourist Information desk and many bars and restaurants are also located at the Market Square, the heart of the old city.

Lovely square to wander round and take in the sights. Plenty to see and the buildings are fantastic. As the lights come on at dusk the square takes on a whole new perspective. Great way to spend an afternoon.

The old main market place with the statue-fountain of Brabo, the city hall and a fully intact series of historic guild houses is a must on your walk from the Central Station to the Schelde river. Check if the city hall is still closed for...More
