Traveling to Antwerp by train

If you catch the train to Antwerp, you won’t be disappointed. This impressive view of the Antwerp Central Station surprised my group during my last tour of this great city. The tour was focused on art. We visited the Cathedral, the Museum Plantin-Moretus the Rubens House. A busy schedule that everyone loved!

A stroll in the Cinquantenaire Park
