Welcome to Antwerp
With incredibly scenic historical sights, a vibrant and rich arts scene and one of the biggest ports in the world, Belgium’s capital Antwerp is a popular destination for both business and pleasure.
The city has a strong industrial and service sector and is among the top 20 economies of the world thanks to its success in diamond and petroleum production and exportation, food processing, paper manufacturing, glass, chemicals, textiles, steel and metallurgy.
Antwerp’s Flemish Renaissance architecture and rich history is evident throughout the city and as home to the likes of world-renowned Baroque artist Peter Paul Rubens who created several of the world’s most famous romantic works, this is a city where lovers of art and culture can find true inspiration.
You’ll certainly find an eclectic selection of cuisine here from well-known favorites including superb chocolates, golden waffles, crispy fries or frites and frothy cold beer as week as some rather interesting local favorites including eel, grey shrimp and an abundance of mussels thanks to the city’s coastal locality and Jenever- the national spirit of Belgium, is also worth trying!
