Central Station, Antwerp

(5,500+ reviews on the web)
Architectural Building Tourist Spot
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.
