Central Station, Antwerp

(4.8/5 based on 5,000+ reviews on the web)
More than a train station, Central Station is an eclectic architectural marvel. Designed by three separate architects and built between 1895 and 1905, the station has received several distinctions as one of the most beautiful railway stations in the world. Enter the historic domed building and marvel at the station's marble and stone interior. Note the three levels of platforms that provide connections throughout the country and the rest of Europe. The station mixes old with new, as renovations have been needed over the years. Notice how the modern architecture blends beautifully with the historic style. For travelers who use our online itinerary creator, Antwerp holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Central Station and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • Who arrives and immediately goes on, missed a highlight: Antwerp Centraal was appointed to the fourth most beautiful station of the world (Newsweek 2009)! And rightfully so! It is also today opened in 1905, still overwhelmed the playful details of premises of different styles, of generous construction, opens at various levels... A steel platform roofing, which itself connects to the main building, is 43 m high and 186 m long! The cultivation and the side view with the inscription "Antwerpen Centraal" can consider themselves particularly well from the public entrance of the Zoo right next door.

  • Impressive station! But when you have to wait for the Thalys - 2, it is still very cold and not nice at all to wait for

  • Also beautiful inside and out, a walk in and around the building is on a visit to Antwerp
