Travelling to different places around the world is entertaining, adventurous and exciting, which inspire many people to go on holidays by air, sea or train.
One of the most beautiful train stations in Europe, serving both international and local passengers is the central train station in Antwerp. With different kinds of shops, including diamond shops under its roof, Antwerp’s central train magnificently stands tall.
The station building was originally constructed between 1895 and 1905, but underwent a very thorough renovation in 2007, transforming the old terminal station completely into a magnificent public transport hall.
The beautiful artworks, design, and architectural work add glamour to Antwerp’s central train station, making it one of the most adored central train stations in Europe.
In 2009, the American magazine ‘Newsweek‘ recognized Antwerp’s central station as the world’s fourth greatest train station and in 2014, the British-American magazine ‘Mashable‘ awarded the station first place for the most beautiful railway station in the world.
In Antwerp, apart from the central train station, tourists always have wonderful places to visit, such as the Grote Markt (Grand Place) Our Lady Cathedral, St Paul’s Church, Platin-Moretus Museum, The Sea Port, Antwerp Zoo etc.
