“a must for every tourist in Antwerp”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 May 2014

Since the renovation this railway cathedral shines again in all its splendour. The old building can compete with the most beautiful train stations in the world. The new part is a worthy replacement of the old tracks and offers now everything a tain traveller can dream about.

“Definitely worth a visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 May 2014

Even if you do not arrive by train, it is definitely worth making a detour to see this fabulous building from both inside and out. For train buffs, platforms on 3 levels is also quite fun.

“Impressive architecture”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 May 2014

The railway station is really big, and has lots of shops in it. There's also a tourist stand, where you can get free maps of Antwerp.
The architecture is amazing and there's old and new coming together. Sometimes there are events, like the dinosaurs expo, so it's a nice railway station to hang out and stay when you're waiting on your next train.

“The most beautiful building in Antwerp and central station so far”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 May 2014

The most beautiful building in Antwerp and central station so far.
Do not miss to walk down the street which begins at the entrance of the station.
