What You Can Expect

Antwerp Half-Day Trip from Brussels

Visit the Cathedral of Our Lady on your half-day trip to Antwerp

After pickup from your Brussels hotel, relax during the scenic journey to Antwerp by air-conditioned coach. Listen as your guide sets the historical scene, offering information on Antwerp’s associations with 17th-century painter, Peter Paul Rubens, and the city's architecturally rich heritage.

On arrival, head straight to the National Redoubt of Belgium, a flagrant fortress used to defend the city in turbulent past times. Stroll the ambient labyrinth of streets and see attractions like the Market Square and Butcher’s Hall. Gaze at the impressive façade of the Cathedral of Our Lady then venture within to admire significant artworks by Rubens; appreciate the delicate beauty of paintings like ‘The Resurrection of the Virgin’ and ‘The Elevation of the Cross’ before enjoying some relaxed free time in the historical heart of the city.

Reconvene with your group and head to Antwerp's railway station, finished by 1905, and marvel at its outstanding architecture and grandeur. When your cultural exploration concludes, return to your vehicle and relax during the journey back to your Brussels hotel.

The best of five tours we took with this company. Mostly because the guide was enthusiastic and loved the city. Had an adequate amount of time to walk through the old city, but as with all beautiful old cities, not nearly enough time to see everything. Very underrated city. In my opinion equal to or better than anything else in Belgium.

So much to see and appreciate in one day: the Market Square surrounded by century-old buildings Cathedral of our Lady, peppered with medieval paintings such as Rubens and not to be missed Sint Paulus Monastery where you find more medieval paintings done by masters the old-town tour and finally the Antwerp Train Station, combining elegance of both old and new architecture. Soak everthing you see, it's worth your time.

Tour guide Stefan was high energy, and enthusiastic! Really wanted guests to have an informed and good time. Perfect weather always helps an excursion, but to see all of the flowers at the town center was just over the top. Do go, and hope you too get Stefan and nice blue skies.
