Central Station, Antwerp
(4.8/5 based on 4,800+ 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.

  • It is with great happiness that I saw this station of my childhood/youth... a work of art! Beautiful, architects were able to link the history of this station and its monumental architecture with the modernism of the international station, standards! I highly recommend a visit when you are in Antwerp to visit this station!

  • Is without a doubt one of the many attractions of the city. It is a beautiful building recently reformed and modernized. Both external as internally features a stunning architecture and luxurious. It was built in the late 19th century, and is considered the fourth most beautiful railway station in the world Is located in the city centre and features a colossal impressive decorated dome. In addition to a Shopping Mall offers a large number of shops. Impossible not to meet her
