Antwerp Central Station - Review
It’s so pretty it’s called the Railway Cathedral. Its every aspect is lavishly and minutely decorated, and lovers of both architecture and trains have spent many an hour here photographing its loveliness. Particularly impressive is the giant iron and glass vault ceiling. If you visit, the beautiful way the modern and the classic meld together here will leave you speechless. To top off its perfection, it has Starbucks.

Antwerp Central Station, Antwerp Reviews
Rated by Mashable as being the most beautiful railway station from around the world, Antwerp Central Station deserved the glamorous title. It is huge with clearly marked platforms. There are also a number of cafes, eateries, convenience store, pharmacy, tourist office, mobile company etc. Practically everything you need arriving as a tourist or a local. Really convenient and beautiful!
Very nice old station. So huge inside the main terminal. It looks like an old church I think. Have a few trips to Antwerp to shopping and feel very comfortable. The popular shopping street is almost in front of the station and there is also a zoo next by then for tourist to save time to go and visit around. There are lockers and toilets inside the station.
One of the beautiful train station I have seen so far. It has eateries, WC's, Waffles and wonderful architecture. Nice place to hang out. Outside the station, there is a giant wheel and play areas for children.
It's one of the most beautiful train stations that you can visit. Needs more stores in it that's for sure. The location of it is unique and just getting out of the station will get you to a lot of cool places of Antwerp from all sides of the building. Take few mins to see the place ypu won't regret it.
Spent 30 minutes in the Central for transfer to Bruges 3 months ago. Beautiful architecture. But we almost lost the backpack (with passports ) to a thief. He took it from the rack right above my wife on the train without her knowledge while I was on the platform. It was purely luck that I spotted the familiar looking backpack and stopped the thief. I got it back and the thief got away. 2 minutes later the train left the station, with two passengers onboard, still in deep shock...
