Antwerp's Port, Antwerp

3.8
#8 of 12 in Historic Sites in Antwerp
Visit Antwerp's Port to see one of Europe's busiest ports. Second only to Rotterdam's port in the total freight shipped per year, this hub bustles year-round. Tour the area by walking along the promenade near the docking stations. The port is just a hop, skip, and a jump from the city's main shopping district. If you're stopping here on a cruise, you'll be able to tour this district and maybe even grab some fresh seafood near the water. Consider a visit to the engineering museum located on the port, where you'll learn about the important economic role the attraction has played in the city's history. Make Antwerp's Port a centerpiece of your Antwerp vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Antwerp trip itinerary maker.
