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.
Highlights of the walk
- Saint Andrew’s Church
- Architecture at Saint Andrew’s Square
- Kloosterstraat with its antique shops
- Saint Jules’ Hospital
- Friday Market and Plantin-Moretus Museum

If you have more time or if you just want to stay longer in this beautiful area, we have various desserts or extra options for you.
Since the 1980s, Antwerp has become a fashion leader. We can make a short side trip to the fashion heart of the city.
Or how about a more thorough visit to St Andrew’s Church? Or, for example, we move further south, to the area of the filled-in southern docks.
Plenty of options!
