  • The tower was the first skyscraper built in continental Europe in the interwar period. It was completed in 1931. He was then the tallest building in Europe, and that is he remained until in the years ' 50 of the last century. The site of the Tower, was formerly a whole block. This block was completely in ruins shot during the siege of the low National Reduit Antwerp. This was done by heavy German artillery (Big Bertha) on 8 – 9 October 1914. After the war years it was decided to place a building on this hard hit on a way that symbolized prosperity. The tower is so strong that even a flown in V1 rocket during World War 2 has almost no damage can cause to the building structure. Just a big hole of some diameters was the result. Proof that the concrete composition of a very exceptional good quality is. Or the tower now is beautiful or not ... He is there and is part of the Antwerp skyline and history. Actually, the KBC Tower a commemorative tower built on the rubble of a not-to-be-forgotten history from World War 1. "The resurrection of the Belgian economy".

  • The KBC tower was built in the early thirties of the last century. This art deco-style building was the first skyscraper in Europe. In the past you could visit the Tower; Sadly now no longer possible. The advertisements promote the beauty not on the roof.
