This is a really unique tunnel which I have never seen or heard about anything like this before. You can tell this as the Photographers are all about trying to get the best shot. But well worth a look when in Anwerp

Before going to Antwarp I was looking for new things to do there and St.Anna's Pedestrian tunnel popped up. WOW...The escalators are authentic from the industrial period. It's a 10 min walk on the tunnel and view from the othar side is definitely worth it

St. Anna's Tunnel / Pedestrians' Tunnel is a good way to spend a bit of time doing something different. You take the original timber escalators or if you are feeling a bit lazy, take the lift down to the tunnel. This is both for pedestrians...More

The escalators are authentic from the industrial period. The tunnel itself was pretty meh, and there is really no order for where pedestrians and bikes should go. But the concept and history of the tunnel is interesting.

I was looking for things to do in Antwerp and St.Anna's Pedestrian tunnel popped up. Running under the Schelde River, it has escalators made of wood and they look amazing. Once at the other end there are stunning views of the city of Antwerp

Nice long tunnel under the river Schelde. You can use the wooden escalator or the lift to go down/up. The tunnel takes you to Linkeroever where you can go for a walk and have amazing views of the city across the river. When in Antwerp,...More

Long stretch of pedestrian / cyclist tunnel. That runs under ground, below the Scheldt River. It stretched about 600m.nice walk across. There after.,took a free ferry back that operate both ways. It took all of 2 mins for the ferry ride. Interesting.

A day in Antwerp on bikes discover one side or both side of the river is a must! The old wooden escalators on both ends with bikes are a breeze. Renting the city bikes is the best as every 30 minutes you can return them,...More

It's a short walk across the tunnel, no more than 10 mins perhaps. On a day with decent weather, it would make for an excellent stroll along the river. Relatively quiet and away from the hustle-bustle of the city, offering a great vista of the...More

We heard about this tunnel from a tour guide on a free walking trip, we would have never found it otherwise even though it was 100mtrs from the cruise ship docking area. A wonderful old wooden escalator takes you down to a tunnel, 500 mtrs...More
