Discover this folksy district full of surprises

A neighbourhood full of contrasts

Few districts in Antwerp are known by so many names as the surroundings of the stately Saint-Andrew’s Church. Here you find contrasts between rich and poor, present and past (just have a look inside the church).

Of the hundreds of corridors and alley ways only a few have survived. For most tourists this neighbourhood is a little hidden, away from the beaten tracks, just join us to discover this unique environment.

The main street is undoubtedly Kloosterstraat (let’s say Abbey Road). Today it is the place to be for antiques and vintage, that have replaced what was once a maginificent Saint-Michael’s Abbey.
