Yes this place is lined with cafe bars but the square itself - atop a car park - is a concrete open area with seemingly little going on. When we were there over the weekend, there were simply a couple of stalls selling flowers.

It is a nice place to hang out and have a drink or just walk around. This plaza has a great view on the cathedral, and sometimes there have interesting markets. It is also surrounded by cafés, good for a drink on a terrace.

Groenplaats or old-town is a typical old well preserved Belgian down-town. You must go there if in Antwerp. Especially on weekends.
