Anterpen stadswandeling, experience, feel and breathe the city with stadswandeli
Posted by jfab67 on February 9th, 2016
When you are in a beautiful city like Anterpen, more familiar to us as Antwerp, what you really need to do is take a stadswandeling. Do you know why? The answer is pretty simple. There is no better way to understand and feel the city than Anterpen stadswandeling. And, for that you need the right tour guide as well because without a guide the entire feel of the walking tour would be lost. Someone needs to explain the places, the people, their history and culture and walk you right through it. If you want to do it on your own, that’s possible too but when in a foreign city a tour guide becomes your best friend for all purposes. What you can expect is one of the most interesting, entertaining and amazing walking tours of your life.
Reaching Antwerp from European cities is facilitated by an excellent network of road and rail transportations. You could travel by international trains if you are in Amsterdam or Paris or you could travel by road as well. You may be planning to save some energy for your planned Anterpen stadswandeling. In that case take a flight to Antwerp International Airport which is connected to various European destinations. You could also book your tickets for Brussels Airport which is not too far away from Antwerp. It has international flights coming in from several global destinations. After landing, you can catch a bus to the Antwerp city centre.
Why take a stadswandeling in Antwerp?
You need to walk the tour instead of hiring a car and travel in comfort, because a stadswandeling can take you to the heart of the city, the nooks and corners, the alleys and streets where vehicles can’t enter - it is there you will find Antwerp’s soul. Though there are clubs, the biggest port of Belgium, magnificent architecture and baroque painting of Pieter Paul Rubens to admire and get awed of, Antwerp lures tourists with its special flavours, tucked away from the prying eyes, only for those who are keen to search for it. The Boulevards and the old town centre are the places where you can start your Anterpen stadswandeling.
What you shouldn’t miss during Anterpen stadswandeling
No, it’s not just a tour of the historical architectures or sightseeing destinations that we are talking about here. Your stadswandeling will be different, it will be special. It will be a potpourri of entertainment, food, culture, history, life in streets – in all it will be nothing like any other walking tour you’ve been a part of earlier. If you are fond of museums, make sure your guide takes you to Museum Vleeshuis and Museum aan de Stroom. Then there is the diamond district, which is the cynosure of diamond dealers around the world. Don’t forget to walk around the Central Station even if you have no train to catch. Finally, the house of Rubens, called Rubenshuis, can be a part of your walking tour if you wish to pay homage to the famous painter’s life and work.
We do hope that with all the above information and suggestions you can make your Anterpen stadswandeling a memorable one. To make the stadswandeling meaningful, do hire the services of an experienced guide.
