Central Station, Antwerp

4.8
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.

    Mainly the lockers at central station are useful! If you want to get rid of your suitcase or bags you can fit a small locker hire for 4.50, there about 2 trolley's in.

    First visited the station in 2005, the year when we had a train to Amsterdam, but this time further platforms do not escape. And now marched on the building of the station and had time to consider it in detail. Though there do not live and krasnouhie turtles, both at the Atocha station in Madrid, but the architecture is impressive.
