Visit Antwerp - Best of Antwerp

Shopping! Designer boutiques and trendy stores on Meir notwithstanding, Antwerp markets have personalities. The centuries old Friday market (Vrigdagmarkt) has people coming in from all over to trade in second hand goods of every kind. The Linjwaadmarkt on Saturday offers some really unique clothes. Sint-Jansvliet on Sundays is terrific for antiques, and at the same time, there's a lively bird market. It's like a European Hong Kong. And we won't talk about the diamond market.

Architecture! Antwerp is one of the prettiest cities you'll ever see. Everywhere you go; the architecture is intricate and stylish, from the beautiful churches and the solemn museums to the stunning Antwerp Central Station. Walking around Antwerp neighbourhoods, which are clean and colourful, atmospheric in a manner that few other European cities can match. Each one of you should visit Antwerp at least once and experience all that it has to offer considering the best time to visit Antwerp.
