“Antwerpen Groenplaats”
Review of Groenplaats

Groenplaats
Ranked #40 of 169 things to do in Antwerp
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 21 March 2013

The Groenplaats, literally "Green Place", is a beautiful historical testament to the culture and lifestyle of Antwerpen then and now. This medieval plaza, formerly the seat of a market (hence "green") is built on an open design, with a statue of Rubens, the city's great Renaissance painter, at its heart. Shops and bars which surround it are unique, quirky, and charming--Sals Cafe has reasonably priced cocktails and the Max Fritkot contains the World's Smallest Frite Museum on its top floor.

It's always nice at the groenplaats! You can relax there, go to a café ( salscafé is the best for coctails ), ... and you have a beautiful view at the cathedral. In the winter there is a christmasmarket. You can easy go to groenplaats with metro. At groenplaats you can also shop very good ( there is the entrende of a shoppingcenter )

Lots of bars on the square. Very close to many shopping areas (Lange Koepoortstraat, Nieuwstraat, Meir, ...). Restaurants very close by. You can walk from here to the "Grote Markt" ("big marketplace"; also lots of terraces & restaurants and a karaoke bar) or to the port a bit further on. You could also take the subway from the Groenplaats (the stairways to the subway is right by where the buses stop) and go to the station or the Zoo right by the station. You can also take tram 8 (above the ground) to "Bolivarplaats" and visit the Koninklijk Museum voor Schone Kunsten (an art museum with both modern and classic art pieces).

If you come visit the great city of Antwerp, you obviously will pass by the Groenplaats. It's the center of everything and that makes it very charming. The little bars, the people walking around. When you go for a walk or shopping in Antwerp you must definitly end it here with a nice drink.
