This is a fantastic collection of medieval and Renaissance buildings, comprising a town square. Don’t miss this amazing sight,- step back in time. Some homes in the side streets date back to the mid-1500’s!

The Grote Markt (Great Market Square) is the most beautiful square in Antwerp and certainly one of the most beautiful squares in all of Belgium and Europe. The architecture here is well worth seeing - so very beautiful that words cannot describe.
