This stations is so beautiful it's worth waiting before going to your hotel just to hang around for a bit. Built in 1905, it looks like a museum.

A must when you visit Antwerp in the middle of the medieval centre. City Hall, tourist office, several musea and pubs restaurants nearby

The Central Station in Antwerp is an architectural masterpiece well worth taking in during a visit to this splendid city. It is considered to be one of the finest examples of railway architecture in Belgium.

This Old trainstation was renewed some years ago! With very modern touch are the many rails replaced above each other instead of next to each other! A MUST see!

The architecture of the train station was breathtaking.... More

The interior of the train station is much more stunning than the exterior. A very beautiful and picturesque train station, probably the most beautiful one I've ever been to.

Antwerpen Centraal is a welcoming meeting place, not just for the traveller by train, and an attraction on its own. Not too busy, curious to see its evolution.

Station is a pretty building with a Starbucks for those craving a super large cup of coffee. Toilets in the station cost €.50 so have change in case there is no one there. Oh, and speaking of large coffees for breakfast, nearby inside the station is a place to purchase warm waffles. One warm plain waffle goes marvelously with the... More
