Although sometimes called an ?insider tip?, this alley is like a must do on an Antwerp sightseeing trip. This has led to an increase in number of visitors and a widespreading tof this secret. In the Vlaakiensgang, you will get a small impresiion of how Antwerp?s old town looked like in the 16th century. For centuries, the alley was in a bad condition until a larger restauration projet took place in the 1960s. If you are lucky to be quite alone, you will feel the quiet atmostphere in contrast to the busy streets around you.
