Small galleries, picturesque courtyards in the old town, former warehouses in the harbour district Het Eilandje, which the gastronomic and club scenes have discovered and converted into spectacular locations. And of course, Antwerp is a particularly good place to enjoy a quiet cup of coffee in style at one of the numerous squares and small alleyways, or to just stroll through the streets.
