If the sun is shining get outdoors and make the most of the nearby parks and reserves. Families love to visit places like Middelheim Park. There is a relaxed atmosphere here and pretty garden beds and trees.
Spend a few hours with fellow soccer lovers at Bosuil Stadium, cheering on the Royal Antwerp F.C.. On match days follow the river of red and white, to the stadium, then after the full-time hooter blows, join fans in the nearby pubs and relive the action over a friendly drink or two.
To make sure you get the most out of this fascinating part of the world, think about making a reservation at one of the area’s many accommodation options. If you’re looking for a warm welcome and a good nights sleep it’s hard to go past the Ramada Plaza Antwerp, the Crowne Plaza Antwerp, and the Hotel Ter Elst.
