Exactly as it says central and well laid out. Very close to the zoo and diamond district well worth going just to see the building.

The architecture is beautiful and it is actually fun to walk inside and out to explore. There are many shops that are useful such as a bio grocery. It is a great first spot to see in Antwerp if you arrive by train.
