NEW 2020

In the vibrant port and art city along the river Schelde you will cycle in the trails of Baroque painter Peter Paul Rubens. In Antwerp you must certainly visit the market square (Grote Markt) with its guild house or one of the museums. Also in-teresting are the fashion designers of which they have a dedicated museum. VOS Travel has developed for you 3 tours, so that you can visit Antwerp and the highlights around the city.

Tour 1: Antwerp (23 or 30km)
During this tour we will discover the historic town centre of the art city Antwerp, home of multiple Flemish Masters and the epicentre of diamond trade worldwide. Antwerp has one of the biggest harbours in Europe and is dotted with fashion houses and jewellery shops. It is also the home town of the painter Rubens, one of the most famous Flemish Masters. As you can read, Antwerp is a multi-faceted city where tradition and modernity go hand in hand!
Most buildings in the historic town centre date back to the 16th and 17th century. There are many museums (like the MAS, Museum aan de Stroom) and monuments to be visited. The town hall and the central station are perfect examples of the beautiful and rich architecture. What you should certainly not forget, is visiting the cathedral and the other churches in Antwerp. And to top off this perfect day you may visit the famous brewery ‘De Koninck’ and enjoy a beer tasting at the brewery!
Tour 2: Westmalle (62km)
During this tour we will discover the Trappist beer! The tour brings us through the  green landscape of the ‘Kempen’ region to the Westmalle abbey, a name that is in the limelight! The abbey was founded in 1794 by French monks. They were refugees because of the difficult circumstances for religious people in France in that era. The Bishop from Antwerp gave them  a farm so that they could earn a living. They started brewing the Westmalle beer around 1850. The abbey itself cannot be visited but there is a pub near the abbey where you can taste the superb Trappist Westmalle and the traditionally produced cheese.

Tour 3: Lier and Mechelen (61 or 79km)
This tour goes to Lier, musts in this city are the beguinage, the ‘Zimmertoren’ and the market square. As an option you can add a small loop to Mechelen. Mechelen was the political centre of the lowcountries during the 16th century. There are over 300 historic and protected buildings as a witness of the glorious past of Mechelen! You certainly have to visit the St. Rombouts-cathedral, from where you have a superb view of the region, the palaces of Margaret of York and Margaret of Austria, the market square and the beguinage. The most famous beer in Mechelen is the ‘Maneblusser’ which is produced in the brewery ‘Het Anker’, certainly worth a visit!
