Good tram stop both underground and overground for the historic centre. Big square dominated by the Reubens statue. Good views of the cathedral.

.Nice view of the Cathedral and the Statue of Rubens. Resting and sitting in the Sun. Near the Shopping center. Your review must be at least 100 characters long. Adding details really helps travelers

Lots of places to eat here. During Christmas, there's a Christmas Market that stretches to the river. It's also a bus hub, so you can get to anywhere from here and vice versa.

This large old could be really nice but is dominated by buses and the taxi ranks. Bordered by shops and departmental stores this is a real shopping hub.

It's just the center place were busses and trams stop. You have a lot of café's and the hilton hotel. Close to everything, but there are nicer places to visit for a drink!
