Must See

The Museum aan de Stroom, near Grote Markt in the old city quarter, is a must-see for its setting alone. Housed in a stunning red sandstone and glass modular building on the Scheldt waterfront, the MAS showcases Antwerp’s history through paintings, sculpture and artifacts. Unlike admission to galleries, entry to the 9th-floor terrace for its dramatic view of the port and city is free.

What's New

Belgian beer and ale aficionados should not miss a visit to De Koninck Brewery’s Visitor Centre. A glimpse behind the scenes reveals what goes into making this popular amber ale. After the interactive, self-guided tour, visitors are invited to enjoy a perfectly pulled Bolleke beer.
