A curious walk

The tunnel itself is not a big deal, but the wood escalator is definitely worth the visit. If you are nearby, go down the stairs to the tunnel and check it out!

Yes you are under the river (Shelde), yes it is a tunnel and yes tehre are no cars. What do you need more to visit this iconic place? Well the access building is a very beautiful Art-Deco structure, with its original wooden escalators and a huge lift where you can carry your bike or not. And it accesses Linkeroever (Left... More

Link between the old and the "new" Antwerp for more than 80 years. One of the two options as a pedestrian or as a cyclist to get to the other side of the river Scheldt. By far the coolest option, the other tunnel is adjacent to the Kennedy tunnel and is absolutely without the slightest charm.

This tunnel connects the centre to the left bank (Linkeroever) of the river. It's a really cool feeling to walk underneath the river. Apart from this you have to see the original wooden stair cases that are still in use today (building year 1931).

This pedestrians tunnel to the other side of the River Scheldt was built around the 1930's. It's still in use, just go down using the old mechanical stairs or the large lift (for bicycles), and walk under the river for around 300 meters. Access and use is free. Have a coffee or tea on the other side and walk back.... More

The Sint Anna Tunnel is a long tunnel that allows you to cross the Scheldt River. Construction began on the tunnel in 1931 and it opened to the public in 1933. It's around 500metres long and access to the tunnel is either by a very old and beautiful wooden escalator, or by elevator. It's a beautiful old tunnel and worth... More

An a humid day, there may be a mist hanging at the other end of the tunnel; eery... Otherwise, a great way to get from left bank to right bank and back, on foot or by bike.

This pedestrian (and bicycle) tunnel is a must-see when visiting Antwerp. It basically offers a free journey back into time (1930's). The wooden escalators and countless tiles on the curved walls make this place a perfect spot for urban and fashion photography. One should also definitely make the effort to go to the other end of the tunnel (and go... More

It is amazing to walk in this long tunnel. At first you get down with an old wooden stairlift. On the other side you have a nice view over the Antwerpen.

Walk yo the other side of the river, and enjoy the skyline of Antwerp. Your review must be at least 100 characters long. Adding details really helps travelers
