Random Antwerp Highlights
A favorite among tourists is a walk along the 16th century Vlaeykensgang, one of Antwerp's few remaining historic alleys. The narrow alley's entrances are no wider than a doorway.
Once a cemetery in the heart of the city, the Groenplaats is now one of Antwerp's most popular squares. It is a perfect place for drinking one of the many local beers.
Ever since this square was created in the 16th century, auctions of second-hand goods have been held here every Friday. The square is also the site of one of the city's most important museums, Plantin-Moretus.
