"The Little Island"


Antwerp at your feet!

Antwerp has a lot of incredible museums, and in this historic old port site, you will find one of the most impressive ones, the MAS.


This colossal “Museum aan de Stroom” or Museum by the river” was the big boost this once so bustling neighbourhood needed to reach new heights.

I will take you on a journey from the past of this old port area to a modern jewel of urban renewal.


Parading on the boulevard along the docks it’s easy to imagine yourself in a luxurious resort on the French Riviera.
But not too long ago, also here there was a time when stepping aboard a ship was a way out for many, rather than relaxation for the happy few.

Imagine the uncertainty of migrants who left everything and everyone behind when boarding or trying to board a Red Star Line ship hoping to build a new life with unknown opportunities in another world.lichtstraat

Admire the ‘Felixpakhuis’ that literally holds the city’s memories in storage, the archives in a wonderfully renovated historical building.

For those interested in the port of Antwerp – Bruges, we will visit the Port Pavilion which will show you the immense span of the Antwerp port, the second largest port in Europe.

The floor of the pavilion is composed of a satellite photo. Try to find our current location if you can!

Optionally we can cross the parkbridge and venture along an old characteristic neighborhood, which culminates in a brand new huge square, the Schengenplein.

The highlight of this tour is a visit of the unique promenade with escalators all the way to the rooftop of the MAS (weather permitting) where the whole city will be at your feet.

To finish the tour, we visit one of the nice pubs in the neighborhood for a drink. A trendy bar, a sailor café, a sunny terrace overlooking the water …
