Antwerp has a holiday to suit every taste and budget, whether you love the bright lights of the city or the tranquillity of the forest, enjoyment is the order of the day. Why not relax on the terrace and savour a traditional Trappist beer, or treat yourself to a delicious gourmet weekend? The city of Antwerp is a fascinating mixture of the ancient and modern, famous for its welcoming atmosphere. Highlights include the 14th-century cathedral, the largest Gothic building in the Low Countries; the Central Station, said to be among the most beautiful in the world; the city zoo; and the home of Rubens, the most famous Baroque painter north of the Alps.

Venturing beyond the city, you might glimpse a deer in Kalmthout Heath – the children will love exploring the magical, fragrant pine forest. The charming cobblestone streets of Lier and Turnhout are waiting to be discovered, and Mechelen is a captivating city with an historic past. For the active holidaymaker, the Antwerp Kempen cycle network offers 2,000 kilometres of paths and roadways, and the view from St. Rumbold’s Tower is well worth the climb. No trip would be complete without a visit to the Het Anker brewery, which reopened in September 2010
