Antwerp – Where the Magic Begins!
Welcome to the vibrant city of Antwerp! Join us at the Blue Point, a trendy and welcoming hub easily reachable by public transport or a city bike. Our selected hotels are a stone’s throw away, allowing you to immerse yourself in the heart of the city right after an exciting day.
Antwerp, a city rooted in the late 9th century, has blossomed across centuries into the cosmopolitan haven it is today, famed for its fashion, diamonds, and craft brews. With 530,000 residents representing 172 nationalities, there’s a treasure trove of experiences for everyone.
Legend has it that the name “Antwerp” springs from “handwerpen.” Picture this: the giant Antigoon demanding tolls from passing ships on the Schelde River. Refusal meant losing a hand until Brabo intervened, casting Antigoon’s hand into the river, freeing it from tolls once and for all. This hand even graces Antwerp’s coat of arms and inspires a delectable treat – the Antwerp hands!
Art, culture, delectable cuisines, and stunning historic landmarks—all seamlessly accessible thanks to our well-crafted mobility plan. Dive into museums like the Fashion Museum, the Royal Museum of Fine Arts, and the MAS. Don’t miss out on cultural marvels at the Singel or the Roma).
