South and New-South
A trendy neighbourhood with an artistic vibe
19th and 21st century are only a few steps apart
On the spot where the strongly disliked Spanish fortress used to stand, arose in the end of the 19th century a new housing district with spacious mansion and broad streets. People soon started talking about the district as Little Paris.
A bit further to the south, where the petroleum installations were situated, huge appartment buildings arise, creating a kind of Manhatten at the Scheldt.
We invite you to come and discover these surroundings with us.

You want more?
The basic tour lasts 2 hours, without a pause. Maybe you’re looking for more?
There’s a lot of bars and restaurants in this district. So it’s easy to combine your tour with a drink and/or a bite.
If you wish to do so, we can plan a visit to one of the present-day art galeries in the neighbourhood.
Or we make a stroll on the other side of the ‘Boulevard’, where a completely different type of quarter developed.
That way we do a 3 hours’ tour.
