Antwerp - a trendy city

Antwerp is a bourgeois city full of surprises.

You can eat in an old chapel, swim on a boat, walk in a harbour setting similar to the “Hudson River”, travel by horse-drawn carriage or shop in crazy concept-stores.

This is the place to be for those who like to be trendy. Antwerp is also a hub for fashion designers: Dirk Bikkembergs, Ann Demeulemeester and Dries Van Noten, mentioning only three names among the constellation of stars that graduate every year from the Flanders Fashion Institute and the Royal Academy of Fine Arts of the city.

Antwerp is also famous for its diamond trade. It must be said that it has the most prestigious diamond dealers and the largest diamond exchange in the world.
