We were very impressed when we got in to Antwerp. The station has a very impressive entrance which you can see from a distance! It was easy enough to get round the station too!

We were surprised at how pretty this station is, while being quite modern inside. It's certainly worth a look.

If you love architecture and design, this is the place to visit. Instead of having horizontal platforms, this station has vertically arranged platforms underground. Take your time to appreciate this marvel.

Look up. Look down. Look from outside. Look everywhere. This station is a piece of art. There are enough shops inside.
