Your stay in Antwerp would be
incomplete without a Flandria boat trip. It will certainly be one of the many
highlights of your stay, so do not hesitate !
There are various
possibilities. A trip on the River Scheldt (approx. 50 minutes) gives you an
unforgettable picture of the city and the river. A visit to the gigantic port
area (approx. 2 ˝ hrs) takes you right into the docks where mighty sea ships
are loaded and unloaded. Evening trips include a carefully-prepared meal with
wine served in an atmospheric setting, lit by the innumerable little lights in
the port (approx. 3 hours).
Flandria also does one-day trips to various tourist destinations. And of
course there is also the ‘Sint-Annekensboot’ service that will ferry you
to the Left Bank.
Most trips start from the pontoon by the Steen. However, visits to the port
depart from Quay 13 (Londenbrug or London Bridge - Little Island). A special
bus travels backwards and forwards between the Steen and Londenbrug.
You do need to make a
reservation in good time for evening and day trips.
Flandria program details,
prices and timetables are too extensive to list here. Information is available
from the little boat-shaped Flandria building on the Steenplein.
