Antwerp

4
Its reputation as a business-centric city distracts many visitors from the real draws of Antwerp: its historical sites, architectural beauty, and lively culture. Belgium's largest city is perhaps best known for its role as a port of trade. However, its fortress, cathedral, medieval monuments, and cobbled streets give the city some serious historical weight. Despite destruction in World War II, Antwerp has revived these attractions as well as works of famed artist Pieter Paul Rubens, who was born here. Customize your holiday with our Belgium trip planner to create an adventure that suits you.
