“quaint”
Reviewed 6 June 2013

quaint little street, dating from centuries ago but very well kept in more or less its original state, right in the center of Antwerp round the corner of city hall, worth passing through, with some typically belgian pubs at the other end ...

“A hidden gem”
Reviewed 8 May 2013

It looks like what could be a private doorway on Antwerps Hoogstraat but it brings you down some quiet alleyways that make you feel like you're back in the middle ages. Some really high quality restaurants can be found here. Actually don't come here, I want to keep it to myself!

“Historic”
Reviewed 21 April 2013

The 'street' exists since 1591, and not much has changed since then. Originally it used to be the place where the cobbler's lived, who were also in charge of sounding the heavy alarm bell of the cathedral. Not easy too find, but worth a visit if you're around.

It's also a great place to listen to the carillon in summer, every Monday from 8pm 'till 9pm (August to September)

This an historic small medieval street in the old city center. There's a very good restaurant aswell, Sir Anthony van Dyck. The food is classic French with good products.
