Antwerp

Antwerp ©
Its reputation as a business-centric city distracts many visitors from the real draws of Antwerp: its historical sites, architectural beauty, and lively culture.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Fort Breendonk and Carolus Borromeus Church. Museum-lovers will get to explore Rubens House (Rubenshuis) and Museum De Reede. There's still lots to do: take an in-depth tour of Museum Plantin-Moretus, pause for some serene contemplation at Saint Paul's Church, stop by GERETTI Jewellery & Diamonds, and examine the collection at Museum Mayer van den Bergh.

For other places to visit, more things to do, where to stay, and tourist information, refer to the Antwerp vacation planner .

Atlanta, USA to Antwerp is an approximately 13-hour combination of flight and car. The time zone difference moving from Eastern Standard Time (EST) to Central European Time (CET) is 6 hours.
