Why do they call the castle “The Stone”? Who is this guy  “Lange Wapper”?
What about this giant, chopping off hands?
Why was Antwerp’s most famous citizen, Rubens, reluctant to talk about his childhood, and what part did the Dutch king have in that?

On this entertaining walking tour through the historic city centre you’ll learn about famous and infamous Antwerp citizens and legendary creatures from the last centuries.Foto 021
