You come for the beauty, you stay for the food, fashion, and liveliness
The way I see it, there are two secrets about Antwerp. But before I continue, I have to admit that the credit for these secrets is due, in large part, to my interview with local ambassador, Johann, who gave me inside tips about the city he loves. The first secret is that Antwerp is a great foodie capital. Step aside Paris, Rome, Barcelona. Let’s give Antwerp its time in the sun. In fact, so good is the food scene in this Flemish city that the 50 Best Restaurants Festival is hosted there. Did you know that? I sure didn’t.

As if excellent restaurants, serving food from all over the world wasn’t enough, Antwerp has a second secret! According to Johann, it’s a hidden destination for fashion. Again, Paris, Rome…ahem. Jokes aside, if you’re as interested as I am in current fashion and want to explore, shop and discover, Antwerp is perfect for you. It’s also famous for its diamond business, if you are so inclined. Finally, for those with a historical mindset, there’s even a museum about the history of European fashion—that really piqued my interest!
