“Beautiful piece of architecture”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

You could tell who is on the station first time!
Very nice transition from old to modern architecture.
Building looks nice from outside and inside. Good to wonder around. Must see.

“Well organised and mix of old and new”
Reviewed 1 August 2014

The use of old and new building and many floors of platforms is one of few well organised train stations in Europe. Just out side to the Meir and many shopping streets that follow up to the Cathedral and the Grote Markt.

“Wow!”
Reviewed 1 August 2014

What an incredible place to see, something quite spectacular as you emerge from the underground car park! An absolutely phenomenal piece of architecture that you simply must visit when in Antwerp. A real must-see.

“A fine railway station”
Reviewed 31 July 2014

We arrived by train at the Central Station and enjoyed looking at the building before moving on. Disappointingly the restaurant was closed for renovation, with no indication of when it was going to re-open. It works well as a station and there are also some useful shops.

“Simply beautiful!”
Reviewed 31 July 2014

One of the best in the world!
Several floors, but really organized. Info right in the top, near the exit.
You find yourself in the middle of the diamond district outside.
15 min walk to the Cathedral!
