Let me help you find your way

Antwerp is a city with lots of old memories, historical buildings, lovely restaurants, a big M for Museums, small streets, a variation in shopping, and lots of more...

When you visit Antwerp you must see the Central Station. When You're in the main entrance hall, don't forget to look up. And just stand there for a few moments and enjoy what you see.
If you walk through the station you see the changes from on ald station build in the 1800 to the modern station builded/renovated in 2007.

Train information
If you have to take the train here, BE ON TIME! It's a big station and it has different levels. And usualy it's a very long line for buying the tickets. So ohterweis you do this the day you arrive on time, or a few days before. The trains to The Netherlands and France or always at -2. Usualy Platforms 22 and 23.

I wright the streetnames in Dutch, so you can find them also on the walls of the street. This is handy for oriantation or asking the way... it's also little bit funny, in this way you can try to speek dutch.

Early Morning

On my way to work this morning I saw the Central Station in Antwerp and I loved it.
5.30 AM

Antwerp Central Station

I like the silence in the morning, knowing that the city still sleeps. So peacefull, no crowd, no loud noises, just me in a very big station.

Maybe I should thank my work for these crazy early hours that I have to start. But otherwise I never get this great feeling that the station for a few minutes is all mine.

Nice way to start the day. You have all the time to wake up on your own pace.
Not so nice when you have your morning ritual on a train with 50 other people.
