“Great place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 November 2013

When in Antwerp , do visit this place. Its like the centre of the universe. Lots of bars, eating places and stunning architecture to feast your eyes on. Its a wonderful place to get settled into and to enjoy a coffee , beer or wine. Nice area too to have a walk , its a hive of activity. Lots of tourists and locals when we were there, and it felt very special .

“True Flemish style”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 November 2013

A great representation of Flemish style architecture that you will find in quite a few of their large cities.
The guild halls that line the central square are always a joy to look at.

“Step back in time”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 November 2013

The Grote Markt is at the heart of Antwerp. Stunning architecture and a great spot for people watching from one of the many bars and restaurants. The Town Hall and the guild houses provide a historical backdrop to the Brabo Fountain at the square's centre. A great place to share a beer.

“A very nice stroll!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 November 2013

Grote Markt is a very nice place for a stroll in nice weather. I was a bit confused I have to admit, I was thinking it would be a market like vendors in the street selling artisan goods; however, it is an area of town like a piazza in Italy. The architecture of the buildings is beautiful, lots of spires and gold tipping. There are several shops & cafes for you to sit & enjoy a coffee or snack and soak up the beauty!

“Historical Heart of Antwerp”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 November 2013

Beautiful architecture, this is the historical heart of Antwerp.
Close to the river Scheldt and the Cathedral.
On Sundays it's nice strolling down Hoogstraat and Kloosterstraat.
