Antwerp, a thousand years of architecture


You’re likely aware of what a beautiful city Antwerp is, and it’s one of the wonderful destinations that we visit on our European river cruises, but one aspect of it that has recently been called to attention, especially for those visiting the city, is the contrast of old and new that is easily found amongst the city’s buildings. Dating back to the Middle Ages, Antwerp has some fantastic architecture that offers a glimpse back in time. The Cathedral of Our Lady and many of the churches are excellent examples of the old, but amongst them you will find contemporary buildings, carefully constructed to match the city’s aesthetic but with a distinctly modern touch. If you want to explore Antwerp yourself, book a place on one of our cruises and enjoy this and many other destinations, all whilst staying in comfort and luxury on board one of our fantastic cruise ships.
