What you'll do

I’ll guide you through the trendy, enjoyable and amazingly varied neighborhood that has been mine for 8 years. We’ll meet on a train track of Berchem Station and finish at Antwerp Central Station. During our 2,5h tour you’ll discover hidden gems, my favorite culinary hotspots, architectural highlights, interesting facts and the history of the neighborhood. You’ll go off the beaten track and find a part of Antwerp that many tourists won’t see. You’ll walk as a local in, sometimes vivid, sometimes hidden streets. Our final destination is Antwerp Central Station. From there you can easily reach the city center by foot, by tram or with a Velo (city bike). You can also chose to go back to the starting point by train or metro. I'll bring a little, local surprise as well. The tour is available in Dutch, English and French.

Giving guided tours to customers and visitors in tv studios, outside broadcasting and production facilities was something I really loved about my previous job. Now, I’ve decided to pick up where I left off. I’ll be guiding you through in a neighborhood where I have been living for 8 years. I’m constantly looking for interesting facts, culinary hotspots and hidden gems and I’ve been digging into the historical background of these places. That’s how I plotted a guided walk that introduces a hugely diverse and interesting neighborhood that tourists most probably wouldn’t discover on their own.

Then we’ll stroll through Zurenborg, a trendy neighborhood with beautiful historic houses. Passing through a Jewish and multicultural area, we’re heading towards the diamond area. We’ll finish in the Central Station neighborhood.
