Melissa's Antwerp Musts

Fashion fanatics love Antwerp, and yes the shopping is great, but there’s much more to discover:

Dresses at the MoMu Exhibit Antwerp
  • The Botanic Sanctuary hotel is hands-down the place to stay.
  • Two favorite restaurants: newcomer Fiera, located in an ancient trading hall, and Sir Anthony van Dijck, in a 1557 building reimagined by Axel Vervoordt.
  • Of course, you have to stop at Dries Van Noten’s flagship, but for women’s fashion don’t miss La Collection and Christian Wijnants.
  • Bring home treats from The Chocolate Line.
  • The Royal Museum of Fine Arts (KMSKA) has reopened after a many-year renovation and is a revelation.
  • The only museum on the UNESCO World Heritage list, Plantin-Moretus house, is a must for decorative arts lovers as much as for book and map fans.
