Antwerp Province travel guide

Specialty Museums · Architectural Buildings · Historic Walking Areas
Constituting the Flemish-speaking northern section of Belgium, Antwerp province features a largely flat countryside intersected by a network of rivers and canals. The major tourist attraction of the province remains the city of Antwerp, a modern urban center boasting a well-preserved medieval heart filled with reminders of the country's 16th-century golden age. Baroque master Peter Paul Rubens lived and worked in Antwerp, providing his adopted hometown with an enviable artistic heritage. The industrial section of the province south of Antwerp, which remains relatively undiscovered by foreign travelers, contains a string of quaint Flemish towns containing Gothic churches and elegant public squares.
