Full description
During the walk, you will explore the Market Square with the Town Hall and the beautiful Golden Age Guild Houses, the Cathedral of Our Lady with The Elevation of the Cross and The Descent from the Cross by Rubens, Saint-Paul's Church, the harbor and the Jewish district. You can visit Rubens' former house during the lunch break. In the former home and studio of the master, you will embark on a fascinating journey back in time and into the world of this great baroque artist.

Patrik proved to be a very friendly guide, telling lots of anecdotes about the history of the city...so much so that we unfortunately did not arrive at the Steen or the town hall from the central station.. We were a group of 25 people, and so, in the midst of other tourists and people circulating on a Sunday morning in the streets of the city, we would have appreciated having headphones and the guide a microphone, so that everyone could hear correctly everything that was said...

Patrick replaced Roger who was unavailable that day but the interest of the visit did not suffer at all: we had to deal with a real passionate and lover of Antwerp who made us want to come back to maybe take advantage be longer of his knowledge of the history of the city and its little secrets. Thanks to him for these few hours of sharing
