Day 1: Explore Antwerp with Antwerp City Card

Visit Rubenshuis (Suggestion by HEY! Belgium) 

Welcome to the house of the famous Belgian painter Peter Paul Rubens. Within this mansion, Rubens created a large portion of his paintings. He even designed the mansion himself, after he returned to Antwerp from Italy, where he fell in love with Italian architecture. The building has been restored to how it used to look when Rubens himself was still living there. So who knows, you might even bump into Rubens himself!

Visit Cathedral of Our Lady (Suggestion by HEY! Belgium)

The Cathedral of Our Lady is the largest Gothic edifice in the Low Countries. After 169 years (1352-1521), the cathedral finally reached its full height, towering over Antwerp at 123 metres. The cathedral is a huge treasury and owns several masterpieces, among others by Rubens. Eye-catchers include Rubens’s “The Elevation of the Cross” and “The Descent from the Cross”.
