Historic Walking Area
Get a sense for the beating heart of the old city at Grote Markt van Antwerpen, which translates as "Great Market Square." Take a look at the Gothic city hall and Baroque guildhalls, ornate narrow buildings with gilded decoration accenting the facade. These housed powerful artisan guilds who looked after each other and protected the techniques of their craft for future generations. Have your photo taken next to Brabo Fountain, designed by Jef Lambeaux and depicting the local legend of the hero Brabo conquering the giant Antigoon. Stop by the tourist office for information on events in the square, such as the Christmas Market and skating rink. Grote Markt van Antwerpen is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our custom trip planner, Antwerp Edition.

  • Hello... I am Brussels living in Antwerp. I fell in love with this city. That charm! Its square in the historic heart of the city is superb and his brabo statue is decorating the Center. The old facades and charming places are absolutely discover. A place where you feel good. Come to see my city

  • We don't go that often to the city but when we go we sure don't have the Large Market. Nice to stay on the outdoor cafes, fine dining at the various restaurant, plenty of choice I would say. Hence we go more along the bad and the stone. All this one should definitely not be missed
