Highlights

  • All entrance fees included
  • Explore the local streets on a walking tour of the city
After a convenient pickup from your Brussels hotel, hop aboard your air-conditioned coach to begin the journey to Antwerp, Belgium’s second largest city. Once home to famous 17th-century painter, Peter Paul Rubens, Antwerp is a beautifully preserved city with many characterful buildings and a rich heritage to discover.

First, head to the National redoubt of Belgium — Antwerp’s ancient fortress — and begin a walking tour through the city. Stroll along the ancient streets with your guide and take in highlights such as the Butcher’s Hall and Market Square. Visit the Cathedral of Our Lady (entrance fee included) and marvel at ‘The Elevation of the Cross’, ‘The Descent from the Cross’, ‘The Ascension of the Virgin’ and ‘The Resurrection of the Virgin’ — four famous paintings by Rubens himself. At the conclusion of your walking tour, enjoy a little free time to explore Antwerp at your leisure.

Continue on to Antwerp's main railway station, finished by 1905, and marvel at its outstanding architecture and grandeur.

Head onward to the port, where the new MAS (Museum Aan de Stroom) museum and Diamond Pavilion await. Here, gain valuable insight into the complex role Antwerp has played in the world over the centuries and learn of the lifecycle of a diamond from rough stone to twinkling beauty.

Enjoy panoramic views out over the port from the ninth floor of the MAS then, when it’s time to leave Antwerp behind, hop back aboard your coach for the return journey to Brussels.
