Don’t take my word for it, read the NYP

New York Post’s Jennifer Ceasar spent a few days in Antwerp and her conclusion is two-fold: 1. Antwerp is under-rated; 2. you mustn’t miss it. And this is why:

“With its perfectly preserved medieval buildings and ancient cobblestone streets, Antwerp might seem content to rest on historic laurels.

In fact, Belgium’s second-largest city is a vibrant, cosmopolitan place where avant-garde fashion, cutting-edge architecture and progressive cuisine flourish.

Here’s how to pass a few days in one of Europe’s coolest lesser-known destinations.”

And the article continues with some very interesting places to visit.

Antwerp among top 5 destinations

The British travel guide publisher ‘Rough Guide to…’ has put Antwerp on the #5 spot of its ‘Top 10 Best Cities to Visit’ for the new year. It praises our city for its gorgeous architecture, for its many museums, its bars, its harbour, its fashion stores, … More than one reason to visit the city, which is worth a stay of a few days.

Another feature that is mentioned is its size: Antwerp is not as immense and overpowering as New York, Tokyo, Paris, London, … but still large enough ‘to offer all the exitement of a big metropolis’.
