Cruises from Antwerp
In the region of Flanders the city of Antwerp, situated on the eastern bank of the river Scheldt and joined to the North Sea by an estuary, is a major destination of Belgium. It claims to be the ‘world's leading diamond city’ and it has every right to do so, as more than 70% of all diamonds are traded here. Due to its long and culturally rich history, the city houses buildings built in varying historical periods with an interesting variety of architectural designs. Indeed, the port itself has scenic historic walking areas that are well worth investigating.
Also impressive is its wide range of museums. Interestingly, a very popular option is to tour the city by bike.
