“Not the Grand Plas!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 October 2013

Disappointing but worth a quick walk through with plenty of potential. This with the Groen Plas are fair places to eat or have a coffee but ill focused and with need of some decoration . The Cathedral is good as are some of the side streets .

“Beautiful square”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 October 2013

The Grote Markt, or Grand Plaza, in Antwerp is one of the most beautiful squares anywhere. Take time to explore the different facades in the buildings surrounding the square and enjoy coffee and pastries in the cafés.

“One of Top 5 Sites to See”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 October 2013

This is a very nice central square in the middle of Antwerp with the Town Hall on one side, Cathedral on the other and alot of quaint buildings on either side. "Market" may be a bit misleading as when we were visiting there were no vendors in the square. Overall one of the top 5 sites to see in Antwerp

“Stunning square”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 October 2013

Perhaps not as beautiful as Brussels main square but the Grote Markt is still stunning with typically Belgian buildings and guild houses surrounding the town hall and adjacent to the Cathedral of Our Lady.
